Julia Louis Dreyfus Smokes An E-cigarette
RUSH: I didn’t watch the Golden Globes. Did you watch the Golden Globes? Apparently Julia Louis-Dreyfus came out smoking an electronic cigarette. Yeah. And TheHill.com, it’s a political newspaper, TheHill.com: “Democrats Miffed at NBC for Smoking Gag During Golden Globes.” Honest to God, I’m not making this up. “Senate Democrats were not amused to see Julia Louis-Dreyfus puffing away on an electronic cigarette during the Golden Globe Awards.”
The Senate Democrats said that Julia Louis-Dreyfus “helped glamorize smoking on the broadcast and are pressing NBC Universal to ensure that the ‘e-cigarettes’ are not featured again.” We’ve got an economic recession going on. We’re about to lose Iraq to Al-Qaeda. We’ve got all kinds of absolute disasters taking place, and Senate Democrats are upset at NBC Universal because one of their stars was smoking a harmless electronic cigarette. (interruption) Well, I know, she plays the veep in a comedy show on HBO, big whoop. Electronic cigarettes right now are the rage in Hollywood. You can’t watch a Hollywood movie without — every other character smokes throughout the movie. (interruption) Who started the e-cigarette trend? Yes, I know. I know I did. I was on the cutting edge. I’ve been there, done that. I wasn’t even gonna mention that. But they are the rage out there. This, to me, is just hilarious.
