I’d like to buy Piers a one-way ticket to Heathrow, and arrange for Jeremy Clarkson to pick him up once he lands.

Can’t stand the man, he is so pompous and arrogant.

As good as those two adjectives are, I just don't think our language has words powerful enough to give full import to how repulsive this man's personality is.

If he can't find similar work, I would think any carnival midway's dunk tank would love to have him. He would bring in a small fortune in quarters.

The good news is they could randomly pick a person out of the phone book and wind up with a better host.

Thanks ColdOne.
CNN head Jeff Zucker ... would like to replace him with Katie Couric...
Clearly CNN's shareholders are the same long-dead Demwits who continue to vote.
