This may have been covered in "Gossip about the Heads" but Douthat is such a douche that he deserves his own category. Anyway, this blog post by Andrew Sullivan (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/the_daily_dish/2009/06/ross-and-bob-and-god.html) contains a clip of a conversation between Douthat and BHtv domo Bob. Douthat rambles on for five minutes, incoherently, in attempting to ask a question. To which Bob replies, "probably".

That clip is the last of seven in an interview of Bob done by Douthat on behalf of our good friends at The Templeton Foundation (motto - "Proudly looking for a way to get god into your life"). You can see it all here (http://www.templeton.org/events/book_forums/bf_20090618.html).

LOL! That clip also shows the superiority of the Bh.tv presentation style, because I would have paid tall dollars to be able to watch Bob's face, starting at about minute 3.

And thanks for that link, too. I will probably watch it shortly.

Well, at least they promoted BHTV and Ross admitted the rambling nature of his query.

Yeah if this had been on BHTV, it probably would have been pen-flipping, water-sipping, staring-slightly-off-camera, and perhaps even a little eye-rolling, galore.

Bob definitely has a knack for comic timing. (Which clearly indicates that there's a God ;-)

The ending was worth it. :)

Bob in a suit looks like a classy Texan country singer.

The clip is hilarious.

But, aw, I'd call Ross a really good guy, not the word you said. He's got a point there, just like he always does, and he's not being a jerk or anything.

Tomato/Tomahto I guess.
