DREW CAREY REPLACES BOB BARKER

Not in any deep, metaphysical way, of course -- Barker is the man, unable to be replaced by any mere mortal.

But Carey is the new host of "The Price is Right." The Associated Press reports:
Carey confirmed the deal during a taping of the "Late Show" with David Letterman.

The selection has attracted more attention than usual for a daytime show because of the prospect of replacing Barker, who retired after 35 years in the job last month.

The opening had attracted widespread interest, including from comic Rosie O'Donnell after she left "The View."
Not bad for a guy with pierced nipples.

Carey could kill Sandler with his bare hands as he learned to do so while serving in the Marines. That said, if he's a Democrat (I really don't know) and wants to run for national office some day, he had better prepare for a swift boat type attack on his record. The only good Veterans are Republicans you know....
