Though John Oliver's long pieces tend to be well-done, occasionally one comes by that leaps to a higher level. This past Sunday's was one of those.
It deals with televangelists, and on that level, it's extremely entertaining as it jumps along for the first 10 minutes. But then at about the 10:30 mark, he kicks it into high gear when he deals with televangelist Robert Tilton in a way that is thorough inspired. That segment alone makes the whole piece worth it.
Except that that's not the pinnacle nor the main point. And when he gets to it -- and I will say no more -- it becomes almost operatic.
The video runs for 20 minutes, but it zips by, you want it to go on, and is worth every second.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
