"If Hitler had a talk show....." - Tommy Smothers.

Jillette makes a moving and though-provoking clip about his beat-down at the hands of his boyhood idol Tommy Smothers. :(

Penn is one of the few celebrities with a functioning brain. Great vid btw.

When he talks about Christian's and his atheism, he gets it that there's a bigger picture. Maybe that's why Tommy Smother's get's it only half right. How sad.

I think that once he really puts this in perspective, Penn will know he did nothing wrong by being on the show.

I think that once he really puts this in perspective, Penn will know he did nothing wrong by being on the show.

And he will get it in perspective because he'll think about about it - he won't just be stuck in some kind of emotional fantasy land like Smothers seems to be.

I hope this experience will be translated into future Penn musings on the futility of clinging to a notion, cause, or idol when it has served its original purpose but overstayed its beneficial actions.

And of course Smothers has to use the same old tired line of conservatives being Nazi's.
