Larry King

| | Comments (0)
A commercial for The Good Shepherd quotes Larry King as calling the movie "the best spy film ever" or somesuch. And why would anyone in their right mind care what Larry King says?

My favorite Larry King moment, the one that perfectly exemplifies all that is wrong with him, took place over two years ago. Here is the unedited opening to the interview:

LARRY KING, HOST: Tonight, once he was Cat Stevens, pop music superstar, singing gentle hits about peace trains and moon shadows. Now he's Yusuf Islam, barred from the United States for suspected ties to terrorists, and he says he doesn't know why.

Yusuf Islam, the former Cat Stevens, is here for the hour with his side of the story that made headlines around the world. It's next on LARRY KING LIVE.

It's a great pleasure to welcome Yusuf Islam to LARRY KING LIVE tonight. He was the great Cat Stevens, knew him in the '60s and '70s for an enormous amount of hits. A wonderful entertainer and a great singer.

He was barred from entering the United States last month because of what the Department of Homeland Security says are concerns about activities potentially related to terrorism. We'll deal with all that in awhile, but first, let's go back a little.

How'd you get the name Cat?

How'd you get the name Cat.

How'd you get the name Cat.

How'd you get the name Cat.

If I ever need a mantra, I think I'd use that.
