Duprey on the Daily Show

From the LSJ (registration required):
There will be a four-minute segment starring Maine's own Rep. Brian Duprey, R-Hampden, who is making a name for himself by sponsoring bills on the Christian right's two favorite subjects: homosexuals and abortion.

A crew of four from "The Daily Show" visited the State House on Thursday and interviewed Duprey about his legislation, especially one bill that would outlaw abortion of a fetus if it has a "gay gene." [...]

Duprey's segment is scheduled to premiere at 11 p.m. Thursday, and repeat at 10 a.m. Friday. The schedule could change.

I wrote Crooks&Liars and they said they'd post the video on Friday. God bless 'em, I can't get the Comedy Channel.

Hey, nice work!

I'll see if I can find a torrent link for the show after it airs as well.

This confirms that Duprey is nuts. They only want the interview to make fun if him. Doesn't he know that?

Read the article George:

Last week "The Daily Show" contacted Duprey and told him they wanted to do a parody on his bills. Being a good sport, Duprey agreed. "I have a great sense of humor. I'm willing to be made fun of," he said.

Thansk for the info. I did not read the whole story. I still do not think this will work out well for him. The Daily Show will not be laughing with him. They will be laughing at him.

The segment wasn't on the show yesterday, but they had a teaser for it at the end with a clip of Duprey. It will be shown sometime next week. It looks like it will be hilarious.
