I’m a huge fan of Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld. I’ve already interviewed Gutfeld and Andy Levy. Unfortunately, Pinch, Greg’s mom, and the guy who says “Lightening Round” weren’t available, so I give you the show’s “repulsive sidekick” Bill Schulz!

Given that 95 percent of the personal information given about Schulz on the show is a running gag, it’s hard to know what’s true. I asked frequent Red Eye guest Ann Coulter what she knew about Schulz. She said I should ask him about his 7th great grandfather, William Dawes, who rode with Paul Revere during his famous ride announcing the arrival of the British. Coulter writes about Dawes in her book, Demonic, “As the Redcoats surrounded Revere, Dawes escaped, pretending to be one of the Regulars in pursuit of a fleeing rebel – ‘Halloo, my boys I’ve got two of ‘em!’ He got away but his horse soon threw him and his journey was over.”

Schulz responded, “He pretended to be a drunk to escape the Redcoats. The blonde says otherwise!”

Schulz was previously a freelance writer and senior editor for Stuff magazine. While Schulz is known as a liberal, Red Eye regular Rep. Thaddeus McCotter told me has a different theory. He said, “Bill Schulz is a true fiscal conservative: how else to explain his frugally residing in a cardboard box in a 6th Avenue alley?”

Each week the De Pasquale's Dozen asks political figures and free market-minded writers and entertainers to take a break from politics and talk about their pop culture obsessions.

1. If there were a television channel that only showed one movie over and over, what movie should it be?

Hotel For Dogs, Hotel For Dogs, Hotel For Dogs. Also? Hotel For Dogs. The word “seminal” and the phrase “tour de force” are both overused. But in this case they apply tenfold.

2. What’s one of your favorite movie quotes?

“I’m Batman.” It actually raises more questions than it answers.

3. In A Clockwork Orange, Malcolm McDowell is strapped in with his eyes propped open and forced to watch images until he was "cured." If you could give President Obama, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Leader Harry Reid the "Clockwork Orange treatment," what movie would you make them watch?

What part of Hotel For Dogs are you not getting? I honestly feel like I’m talking to a wall right now. Wait…maybe I am. Where did you go???

4. What pop culture souvenir do you own that people would be surprised to learn that you cherish?
