Education Secretary Loses to Washed-Up, Z-List Sitcom Actor on Jeopardy


In the end, Spellings said she thinks the effort was worth it. She came in second behind the actor Michael McKean, best known for his role as 'Lenny' on the television show "Laverne and Shirley" and for the movie "This Is Spinal Tap."

Placing third was actor Hill Harper, from the television show "CSI: NY."

"I think I held my own," Spellings said in an interview Tuesday, hours before the show aired. She noted McKean had an edge, having been on the show before.
Or maybe the seemingly nice (but not nice at all) Education Czar was all distracted, her mind filled with conspiracy theories featuring PBS and homo-lovin' cartoon bunnies.

The winner's money goes to charity, doesn't it? Can't they just feed her the damn answers? Why does Jeopardy hate America?

Well... I shudder to think what charity Ms. Spellings would benefit. Texans again Lesbians?

Well, I knew the answer to every question, but I was at a disadvantage because I hadn't been on the show before.

God wanted me to win, though.

Is she standing with McKean? He looks eerily like GWB doesn't he? Or am I just forgetting to swat the flies in my brain again.....

Guru, you silly, that's Alex Trebek.

I am also displeased with PSP's rude introduction of the great Michael McKean, who has done some great work with Christopher Guest since "Spinal Tap".

As for the secretary's problem with homo cartoon bunnies, if she knew some non-cartoon homos in real life, she'd might have a better haircut.

Or is that just a vicious stereotype?

I want to echo matty boy's support of the wonderful Michael McKean, who's one of the smartest funny people alive. Granted not so good at live acting (at least not live TV - his time on SNL was stinko I thought), but mad smart-funny nonetheless.

I however do give PSP the benefit of the doubt, and credit the appellation to sarcasm, staying in character, and/or putting words in Ms. Spellings' ample, pouty mouth.

Hmmm... I've been thinking. Is Happy Bunny gay?

Actually, since this was JEOPARDY!, they were already feeding Ms. Spellings the answers; but like everyone in the Bush administration, her problem was in not asking the right questions.

Heee, I can't think of McKean without thinking about his role in Best in Show. He played a suit-wearing once-married "hairdresser" (in the PSP sense of the word) partnered to an inCREDibly fey John Michael Higgins, who also had a kimono fixation. They raised Shih Tzus.
