Why do I think Atlanta’s Shelby Highsmith will be the next big media-whatever thing? Because he’s got something Colbert and Stewart do not… a distinct je ne sais quoi youthiness and overt brainy-white-boy sex appeal. (There. I’ve finally said it. I feel better already.)
I’d add Maher to the above list, but not being terribly youth-i myself, I find Maher quite sexy, although I doubt ladies under 35 would much agree with me on that one.
And dammit all… WordPress once again eats all embed code except for YouTube’s and sometimes Blip.tv’s, so you’ll have to do the clickin’-to here yourself. Word.
