  1. I wish they did more on this! It was funny but didn't go as far as it totally could have!

    I have a feeling that crazy guy caught on at some point and cut it short.

    Real cute! (And the runners in the beginning are super hot)

  3. Obsessions like this don't usually have a happy ending.

  5. the best LGBT advocate we can have: Andrew Shirvell

    given the Daily Show's large young audience, this segment helps convince the younger generations of voters why LGBT people need full equality and protection..

    Thanks Andrew Shirvell for helping make the case for LGBT equality even stronger. Keep talking.

  6. And to think this guy is the ASSISTANT Attorney General. Really?

  7. It always amazes me that these nut cases go on The Daily Show or the Colbert Report. Are they living under a rock? The Shirvell bit was a great bit to play after the huge rally this past weekend.

    He is going before a hearing this week, to determine if he should be disbarred, let's hope they do the right thing and he goes to work for Fox.

  9. This was one of the strangest things I've ever seen. What the fuck was Andrew thinking? So glad he looks like an asshole.

    Bravo to the Daily Show for both this and the 'Back of the Bus' segment.

  12. what a pathetically sad little gnome andrew shrivel (typo but it stays) is.

    it must be really, really awful to wake up every morning and go out into the world living that life.

  13. I love it when the subject has no freakin' idea that he's not on a "real news show" - this Shirvell guy is playing hockey with a warped puck. Beware.

  14. The guy is incoherent, just grasping for words to use to explain his hatred but he's really inarticulate. Which begs the question: How did this guy ever get the job of Assistant Attorney General? If he is this incoherent in a "news" interview, what about a job interview? I wouldn't hire him to be the copy boy.

  15. obvi a closeted self hating homo

  16. My theory is that this Andrew guy is a closet-case gay and he tried to hit it with Chris Armstrong. Armstrong rejected him and now Andrew is playing the cyberbully-victim role. He should be disbarred and put in jail, where he will get all the attention.

  17. Shirvell is closely linked with the right wing religious groups in MI, he got his job after helping get his boss Cox elected, which is why he has not been fired. Even though Cox is not running for AG again, he clearly fears the political power of these nuts.

    That is the reason he was put on leave, not fired, and he's leaving it to the MI bar association to punish Shirvell, so his hands are not dirty.

  18. Creepy stalker dude is really creepy.

  19. This guy looks like Pee Wee Herman's creepy evil brother and acts flat out like a stalker. Fire his butt and then disbar him.

  20. What a pathetic little creature in an ill fitting suit.

    Posted by: Bob R | Nov 2, 2010 1:13:51 PM

  21. His boss, Cox, has made a statement that he finds Shirvell's actions immature. I don't think he's gonna have his job much longer.

  22. Like shooting fish in a barrel...

  23. The amazing thing is how Shirvell, like so many right-wing, nut-bags, turns it all around and makes himself the victim! The guy is an absolute poster-boy for what we can expect the next two years after the election results come in tonight. I hope that he does get disbarred. I fear, though, that if he does, he'll probably exercise his "second amendment rights" and go postal.

  24. um, how, um, creepy, um, was that! I usually say um..when sucking cock, just sayin'.
