Also in the George Gurley New York Observer column on Bob Saget was a choice quote from his colleague Penn Jillette (of Penn & Teller fame). Talking about his upcoming documentary The Aristocrats, which features about one hundred comedians in the raw, Jillette says:

This movie is a pure dream of Thomas Jefferson, in that it's a hundred people saying anything that pops into their head, with no fear whatsoever. You know a lot of the Hollywood people--and this pissed me off so much--would say, "Oh, your movie's fine in the blue states, but what about in the red states, where you get to the stupid people?" And I would say, "Oh, by 'stupid people' you mean people who can program a machine, fix cars and perform surgeries? As opposed to we who are in Hollywood, who can't do f--king anything?"

Jillette is a remarkably sensible person in spite of his penchant for hyperbole. He's one of the few entertainment types who's loudly called Michael Moore on Moore's bullshit, and speaking of, "Penn & Teller: Bullshit!" is almost always on target.
