Todd Gitlin is the voice of Depends. Todd Gitlin is the voice of denture cream.
Did you, like me, make the mistake of catching Fresh Air on NPR today? Julia Louis-Dreyfuss was the guest.
I thought, for example, that Wanda Sykes might come up. That their five seasons as a comedy duo on The New Adventures of Old Christine might come up.
Dave Davies is a White man.
He's not just a White man, Dave Davies is an enemy to me and every other Black woman in the country.
He couldn't shut up about Seinfeld. He played two long, LONG, clips.
Julia won the Emmy for New Adventures, not for Seinfeld.
But White over the hill men don't like funny women, they especially don't like funny Black women. So we didn't get to hear one damn word about: What was it like to work with Wanda Sykes? Your Christine and her Barb ended up married to each other, what was that like? The two of you have been compared to Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance. Any chance she'll be on your new HBO show?
We didn't get any of that.
Just an over the hill White man babbling on about Seinfeld. And then babbling on about Saturday Night Live.
