Dear Jesse (with apologies to Tim Kirkman):
How on Earth did you NOT know the mic was hot…
…and WHAT did you think FOX News was going to do with this?
Now, you’ve gone a become a laughing stock.
You’ve make Robert Smigel’s observations (and his own nut busting parody) waaaaaaaaay back in March seem downright prescient:
It’s a shame really, Jesse. You’ve become a parody of yourself…who can forget your appearance on SNL reading Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham?
Is anyone really supposed to take you seriously anymore?
But take a moment to watch your invocation before the Wattstaxx concert in 1972…and you’ll see a Jesse that COULD have been SOMEBODY.
Your bit starts at 6:16, right after Richard Pryor…but treat yourself and take 9 minutes to watch the whole thing:
