Karl Malone, Jon Stewart to Entertain US Military Personnel

Karl Malone is taking his talents overseas, along with popular comedian Jon Stewart (and others) to provide US military folk with some entertainment. From the Deseret News: “The Mailman is going on a USO entertainment tour this summer with ‘The Daily Show’ host Jon Stewart, popular illusionist David Blaine and Admiral Mike Mullen, the current Joint Chiefs of Staff. For six days, the group will entertain and visit with military personnel in three countries. For security purposes, the USO does not announce the tour’s exact itinerary. While it will be the former Utah Jazz star’s first overseas USO tour, this will be the 10th such trip for Mullen. He has worked with the USO since 2007, leading tours in 13 countries and helping entertain 74,300 service men and women, according to an NBA press release.”

    Man, the troops don’t wanna see those cats.
    First of all, most service members lean towards the conservative and don’t care for liberals like Stewart.
    Secondly, about 2/3 of them are young as hell and never saw Malone play.
    Getting a visit from Admiral Mullin is like your company’s CEO paying a visit to your office.
    And unless David Blaine can make the Taliban disappear, they won’t care.
    Honestly, the troops only care about seeing some hot chicks, UFC fighters and Chuck Norris.

    @ Enigmatic: Have you seen “Generation Kill”? BEST mini-series ever, and centers on the marines. Also, created by David Simon and Ed Burns and Evan Wright (the original author of the book).

    Karl Malone is going to repeat all his NBA highlights live… Jon Stewart playing the role of John Stockton on offense… or ‘token white defender’ as Karl settles for an 18 foot jump shot.

    LOVE that they’re going! Great way to raise morale! My husband is looking forward to seeing them. And NO, most military are not conservatives. We’re a military family and my husband is stationed in Afghanistan now. So, unless you’re doing something to help support the military and their families, don’t knock those that do. We appreciate their USO appearance.
