Couldn’t She Be A Little Less Lovable?

I tried to watch Betty White on Jay Leno last night, but after about, oh, a minute or so I realized that her Naughty Granny schtick had gotten so tired that I couldn’t bear it anymore. Betty is the most beloved celebrity in America, so I realize that dissing her is like spitting on the flag, but still I wish she could do an interview without talking about all the young men she’d like to bonk. She’s about to be roasted by the Friars Club in New York. The toastmistress, Barbara Walters, promises that the occasion will “be an afternoon filled with dirty words, risque jokes & sex talk.” Can you imagine anything more groaning on Planet Earth that day, with the possible exception of Mitt Romney trying to be a man of the people?
