(From a post that I wrote in 2013)

Johnny Carson made his debut on The Tonight Show this week in 1962.   It went on until May ’92 when Carson retired.

Along the way, Carson had a way of addressing our political issues with humor and incredible timing.  He made politics fun, specially when he would poke fun at both sides with great lines.

Do we have someone like that today?  Not really!    I know that Saturday Night Live will do a good intro from time to time.

There are other comedians but I just don’t stay up to watch any of them anymore. Dennis Miller on The O’Reilly Factor is great but it’s once a week.  

Where is Johnny when we really need him?
