The current flock of late night hosts pale in comparison to Johnny Carson.
Not even close.
JAY LENO: You never knew Johnny's politics. Johnny would come out and equally make fun of everybody and never question anybody's patriotism. It was always about what they said or did.
RAYMOND SILLER (Writer, The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson): In fact, in thirty years, you'd be hard-pressed to guess who Johnny ever voted for, and that's the way it should be. Why alienate half your audience?
Right. Why do that?
