"That ain't gonna happen," the retired Carson tells ESQUIRE magazine. "That ain't gonna happen." * * * Reporter Bill Zehme has been courting Carson for years and the relationship has paid off in spades: On May 8th, ESQUIRE rolls out an exhaustive exclusive interview with the press-shy Carson, running 10 pages. Carson rips FOX for its Super Bowl red-white-and-blue coverage following 9/11: "When you look at the production -- give me a break!" Carson says. [b]"Norman Mailer said something about patriotism being a nice thing, but just ease up a bit... It's nice to live in this country, but ease up!"[/b] Carson takes on Bush: [b]"Can you believe this Enron mess? I love how his good friend 'Kenny Boy' suddenly turned into 'Mr. Lay'... Give me a break! It will be a long time before we ever understand what's going on behind that story."[/b] * * * He tells Zehme that the only time he wished he was back on the air and not retired was during the Monica Lewinsky mess.

Strange views from someone who professed to be such a Reagan fan. That being said i havent watched many late night talk shows since he retired.

You can always tell when the elections are getting closer, all the Hollywood types start volunteering their commie opinions again.

I don't know what he was like earlier on (as I wasn't born yet). But, his shows in the late 80's/early 90's just before he left weren't ever worth watching IMHO. Jay Leno does the Tonight Show a million times better than Carson did. Now, I know why...Carson is commie Rat bastard.

Just goes to show, who gives a crap about a celebrity's opinions (no matter how entertaining he was) on life. Puke. M4-AK

Ditto M4-AK. Why anyone listens to the dancing bears in Hollywood, I'll never know. When did experience in acting turn into wisdom in political matters?
