    Any lucky Hubsters going to be in DC today for the big decision?

    Apparently it was delightful actor night. Loved Senise’s bow to the audience and I always want to give Tom Hanks a great big hug. What a sweet guy.

    Stephen’s comment, “Well, then we’re going to have fun.” after Trevor Potter told him the FEC cannot arrest him for anything that he does tomorrow was glorious. Loved the mischevious smile on his face, too.

    Gary Sinise is awesome. I had no idea he was associated with all of those foundations, that’s really wonderful. And Stephen and Sinise could have traded stories all night as far as I’m concerned; I love hearing Stephen talk about his trip to Iraq. He still sounds awe struck that he was able to go over there.

    Let me get this straight: Stephen is in DC this morning (I’m assuming he caught a flight out last night after the show), then he has to immediately come back, finish up the show, and finally tape the episode? And then go to Charleston tomorrow? I sure hope he finds time to sleep at some point.

    I know everyone has moved on (understandably) to the Superpac/FEC decision. But I just want to give this show a shout out for the “Golden Reacher-Grabber Award.” My grandmother and mom both had/have (non-golden) reacher-grabbers & to see one of those things in award form caused me to laugh so hard I just about busted my gut!

    Also. Does anyone else find it worrying that Stephen is promoting his appearance in SC so much? I’m not against that. But, it’s very unusual for “Stephen” to promoted an event that Stephen is attending. (Did that make sense?) I wonder if tickets aren’t selling that well and that’s why he’s been pushing it so hard. Does anyone know? I’d just hate for something he cares about so much not succeed. Especially since it’s in honor of his father.

      You’re not wrong – it is unusual for “Stephen” to promote something like that. But I think it’s because it’s in honor of his father that he made the decision to promote it on the show. Maybe he just wants to make sure as many tickets get sold as possible to help out the endowed chair (from what I can tell, it’ll have the same kind of turnout that the Two River benefit did, and that place was packed). I think with the way Stephen announced it, he was able to make a joke about it (like him and Jonathon Alter “fighting to the death”) and still not take away any of the meaning or sincerity of the event.
