Rich Little will not do any of those things, which makes him perfect for the gig. That's not a slam on Little; he does what he does, and this is the ideal event for it. The attendees like to tell themselves and each other what a wonderful sense of humor each of them possesses (see Cohen, Richard Dice for further edification), but in fact they cannot stand being told the truth about themselves, and their cheaply-auctioned souls. There are exceptions, but in the aggregate the "professionals" have failed miserably, and are being shown up with great regularity by the pajamahadeen. It's gotta be downright embarrassing after several years of consistently being behind the analytical curve, and failing to realize that it's because their vaunted objectivity has been irretrievably co-opted.
And I think there's yet another reason they went with Little:
No one else wanted to touch the gig. Can you blame them? Who would want to emcee two groups of crybabies as they pretend to stroke each other?
Rich Little is funny, and he's a gifted mimic. He'll do fine. I look forward to hearing his Paul Lynde impersonation. It will be finely crafted Pepto-Bismol for all the upset tummies in the audience. I never turned to the stupid WHCD for anything edgy anyway; it's an event which, like its participants, keeps lurching toward the reliquary.
