Bishop Gene Robinson was *hilarious* on The Daily Show last night
http://www.thedailyshow.com /

Stewart: "Can I ask you.. I mean Washington was so crowded today there were so many people you as a Bishop are sort of doubly handicapped in that situation only being able to move diagonally (laughter) how is that... how is that in negotiating the crowds?"

Bishop Robinson :"John, you have to understand there is a Queen on the board as well"

:rofl:

16. It's the sharpest retort any guest has ever given him.
I've watched a lot of Daily Shows, and I can't remember another guest shocking him like that.

12. That was the best Daily Show reply ever.
I loved how he told Rev. Warren that he was praying for him. It may not be a cut, but I sure think it is.

I love this guy!

13. I love chess jokes
and most people who make them.

Bishop Robinson seems to have that most wonderful of human attributes, the ability to laugh at himself.

I don't believe a word of it, but were he in this town, I might go just to hear him speak.
