    That about sums it up. Career-wise, it ain't gonna get you a gig in Las Vegas or a network special. And $50/day barely covers chewing gum expenses. These guys and gals are giving of themselves and their otherwise valuable time to bring a little joy and touch of home to our troops.

    And for that, we all owe them a debt of gratitude!

    Rush isn't a stand-up comic, but then to judge by Franken's history, act, and talent, neither is he.

    Wow! He went in March of this year. Oooh! Scary kids!

    From the link, it appears Rush did a bunch of photo-ops and that's about it. Oh yeah, he did an interview on Kabul radio.:rolleyes:

    Actually I'm surprised he hadn't been there earlier and more often. There must be a lot of black market Oxycontin floating around.:p

    That's a matter of opinion although technically I suppose he's a "sit-down comedian". Nearly everything he says is hilarious!:rotfl:
