Oh, there you are! This one’s easy: a sexy, silver lock of John Gibson’s perfect hair. Don’t know if that qualifies as “pop culture”. But our adventures have always involved a lot of “culture”, and our relationship certainly has a lot of “pop” to it.
5. What's your current “guilty pleasure” non-news television show?
“Real Dogs, Real Hotels: The True Stories Behind The Groundbreaking Film”. It’s on Bravo, and it constantly challenges my ideas of what “dogs” and “hotels” are.
6. Which movie, television or rock star would cause you to lose your ability to speak if you ever met?
Movie: Any of the dogs in HFD. Television: Ernie. Actually…maybe, Bert. Rock Star: Celine Dion. DUH!
7. What was the first rock concert you ever attended and where did you sit and who went with you?
Crosby, Stills & Nash at Ravinia in Highland Park…I think. Maybe Clapton at Rosemont Horizon. We start drinking at an early age in the Midwest so, truth be told, all of my grade school/high school concerts were very black-outy. It’s called wasting money on a ticket, America. Look into it.
8. Tell me about a public or private moment when you thought to yourself, "This is what Elvis felt like every day.”
Every time I’m sitting on the toilet while eating a fried peanut butter and banana sandwich.
9. What advice do you remember your mother or father giving you? Did you take it?
“Don’t eat the worm.” And, yes, mom. I refuse to do it to this day. GOD. She’s such a pest!
10. What’s the coolest thing you’ve been able to do because of your role in the media?
First pitch for the White Sox for Red-Eye and Maxim, cage diving with Great White Sharks for Stuff magazine, and finding the long ago gift of a churchwarden pipe, from my dearly departed Godfather, on the walls of Keens’ Steakhouse for the New York Times. Thanks for the gig, Pinch!
11. Many have said that Washington D.C. is like Hollywood for ugly people. How do you think DC is like Hollywood? How is it different?
Both cities are lousy with actors. And most of them aren’t very good actors, at that.
12. Which is more difficult: Being a conservative in the entertainment industry or being a liberal at Fox News?
Neither is all that hard, I think. Unless you like to complain. And in that case…do you have an hour? Seriously. We could do dinner or something. Don’t even need to talk about work. Do you like Italian?
