March 20, 2009 question

First Guest
Obama goes to Hollywood

Last night, Jay's first guest was the First Guest. For the first time in history, the sitting president of the United States was sitting in the late night talkshow couch. I don't know if it makes me happy, confused, irritated, or what. I guess it's just proof positive that we're living in a new day, in which the pres doesn't mind filling out brackets and hanging out with Leno. It kind of feels like one of those phases when your boss decides to get really involved with your work. You know, to break the distance between management and labor.

Sure he's cool, but he's still the boss. And now I don't feel comfortable--even Kevin was in a suit. I mean, you can laugh, but not too loud. And you have to act like you're so happy he's there, but really you just wish Reese Witherspoon would come back, and he would go back to his Oval Office and leave you all alone to play Minesweeper and talk about fashion.
It's okay, Mr. President. You don't have to be cool. Just, you know, save the economy or whatever and let us have our space. Boundaries, sir. Boundaries.
Today's Question

Who was the first U.S. president to appear on TV?
Yesterday's Answer
And the people who knew it

The most productive day of the week is Tuesday, although I suppose a better question would have been, What is the second most productive day of the week? Because almost no one guessed Monday. But here's who knew that Tuesday was number 1:
Nancy K (the K stands for Keeping Busy)
Steve T (the T stands for Tuesdays Stink)
H. E. (the H E stands for Hurrying Everyday)
Steven F (the F stands for Fridays Are My Days)
Karen M (the M stands for Mondays Are Fun Days)
Heather M (the M stands for My Favorite Day Is Today!)

I guess this new format makes everyone really sharp . . . or the questions really dull. Great work, regardless!
