Why I hate Conan O'Brien

You want to know why I don't watch Conan O'Brien and think he's an idiot?  He's invited to make the Dartmouth Commencement address and he offers this bit of brilliance:

"Today, you have achieved something special, something only 92 percent of Americans your age will ever know: a college diploma. That’s right, with your college diploma you now have a crushing advantage over 8 percent of the workforce. I'm talking about dropout losers like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg."  

Actually, Conan, no.  Only about 19% of Americans get college degrees. But, I understand, you were trying to make a joke.  However, it wasn't funny.  Sort of like you weren't funny on the Tonight Show, which is why you got cancelled (after getting $30mm and crying endlessly).  Just like your show now isn't funny.

How do some people manage to have so many unproductive lives?

Thanks. I don't know if I hate Conan or if I'm annoyed that people praise someone so much who really hasn't been that successful.

I can't wait until Conan runs out of money because he has to be paying a lot to get a guest. And I hope its the money he got from NBC. Even they payed to get rid of him.

Conan Obrien is a Jerk, I know I dont have solid proof to prove it but As a person who is undergoing a similar situation to Jordan, I understand why he is acting in his "asperger" mode as many people believe. I have been humiliated and pressured alot in my life and when you are really angry and humiliated you cannot think very well, and the reason why Jordan keeps talking despite the humiliation is because he is in the public eye, he is pressured and also because Conan oviously threatens fire him in front of his face... people who believe that its all a skit. Have you ever thought that this might not be a skit and that Conan is actually a jerk who is able to continue his unacceptable abusive behavior to his co-worker, because his behavior publically accepted and he is justifying his actions with it. Im not saying that Jordan is doing the right thing but mocking and humiliating someone is not the best way to deal with a situation. furthermore by humiliating and mocking someone infront of many people you can damadge and traumatize someone for the rest their life.
