Host Peter Sagal's guest contestant on the 'Not My Job' segment of the NPR game show, Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! is James Comey. Yes, that James Comey. The interview is a lot of fun, particularly because many of the panelists are bursting with questions of their own and jump in. But it's when they get to the game that things kick into high gear. At one point -- I'll just say at some point past the 7-minute mark -- Comey makes a quip that probably gets the biggest laugh I've heard on the show. And that alone would have made the segment worth it. But it keeps going, because later Peter Sagal adds a twist that almost tops it. The twist also explains why earlier Sagal doesn't help out with any of the other questions, which he often does, because he clearly wanted to get to this point. Sorry for being cryptic, but I don't want to give anything away.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
