I feel the same way. I like when LFF bumbles over everyday topics and is dumbfounded by his own irony. That's his bit the writers were looking for and some of us get it. That is the only reason his show is hanging on. He has zero concept of political reality; nor is that his realm....Unlike the klubbers/simpletons/peekza types, who do not really understand the humor of it all, yet cling to the show for whatever strange reason that they do.
