Stu calls in live from Hawaii...
GLENN: Can we go now? I want to get this on right away. Excuse me, that was unprofessional but I just want to get this on right away. Our chief medical correspondent, Steve Burguiere, otherwise known as Stu, is out today. Where are you, Stu?
STU: Oh, Glenn, I'm traveling as you know right now, trying to figure out some of the big medical advancements and situations that are going on right now.
STU: You know, the human brain is really a magnificent thing. It's part of the body that processes information. It manages what you do, and it's capable of creativity. Like if a dog in a...
STU: No, it didn't work. I was trying to come up with an analogy there. But the brain also has a dark side, and it's very important that people know about it. It's capable of bringing us to a dark place and that's what doctors and I, you know, other doctors and I have noticed in our studies.
GLENN: You're not a doctor.
STU: There is a heavy upturn in the level of depression and in separation anxiety among a very important sub group of our population.
GLENN: What are you even talking about?
STU: I'm talking about medical news that you care about, news you can use.
GLENN: There's some where are you?
STU: The news is important, Glenn, because this is not just some group. It's a very important, intellectual group of Americans.
GLENN: That are going through depression?
STU: And separation anxiety. I'm talking, of course, of news reporters. All of a sudden in the middle of summer Barack Obama who has been the nonstop focus of media for months has just left. I mean, he's just gone. We were looking all over for him. He's just gone.
GLENN: He's on vacation.
STU: And he's leaving reporters with nothing to do. It's very sad, Glenn. What are reporters really supposed to do with Barack and his family in Hawaii? How will they know that white people are bitter gun clinging racists that won't vote for him because he has a funny name? How are they even going to know about that? It's really sad.
GLENN: Are you okay?
STU: It's just, I
GLENN: You have the memory thing happening and or the creativity was lost and now you're
STU: I'm just saying it just, it's just, when you think about it, it gets really sad.
GLENN: Where are you?
STU: These reporters, Glenn, have seen Barack Obama sign his name. You know, they haven't been seeing him, you know, give autographs or sign someone's breasts or anything in quite some time. All week. It's just really sad, you know. I just, I mean, there's so little going on. What are we supposed to do with our time?
GLENN: Well, there's a lot going on. There's Georgia going on, there's I've just been forced to really look hard for scientific stories on this factfinding mission I'm on.
GLENN: Where again where are you?
STU: I'm in Hawaii. That's where Barack Obama is. It's very sad here.
GLENN: You're in Hawaii? Were you stalking him?
STU: I'm just saying I've had to come up with different things to try to cover here. For example, what are the effects of millions of individual differently shapes pieces of rock on the human foot? It's impossible for a human being to stand on an oddly shaped board and project himself powered by only the waves of the ocean. Is it possible to protect the quality of hydration for everyday people from the potentially polluted rain using a small umbrella in your glass? These are all questions I've had to answer this week.
GLENN: Just because Barack Obama's gone?
STU: Yeah, there's nothing else to do in Hawaii. I've been trying to just trying to research the answers to those questions.
GLENN: Have you seen Obama?
STU: I haven't really had time per se to look for him with these other experiments I've been doing.
GLENN: Sounds like you were
STU: Like if you lay a towel on the beach and you lay on it, your skin might turn colors. Is there some sort of is there some sort of interesting
STU: Connection, yeah, connection, obviously to something.
GLENN: Stu, you keep up the hard scientific
STU: I'm going to need another week
GLENN: Pardon me?
STU: To finish my research out here. You know, if the conventions are coming up, what's the effect of this community?
GLENN: What community?
STU: What is the effect of the Denver convention on Hawaii? I should be here to check it out. You know what I mean?
GLENN: Shouldn't you go to Denver?
STU: How does the jet ski really work? These are crazy. How do I find out about that?
GLENN: All right. Thank you very much, Stu. By the way, can you Stu, can you should we when should we let people in on our convention coverage ideas?
STU: I think we need a little bit more time to flesh that out and make sure that they
GLENN: For the Democratic convention, I don't think we need any time to flesh that one out.
STU: I'm just saying that
GLENN: Let's just say that I promise you you won't get this kind of coverage of the conventions any place else. I will say, though, also we had a hard time coming up with an interesting funny kind of fun angle on the Republican convention. I mean, we were also talking like, why don't we just go to Milwaukee. There's got to be something more fun to do in Milwaukee.
STU: It's sad, isn't it?
GLENN: It was really sad. The Democratic convention, we came up with all kinds of ideas.
STU: And you'll be hearing them.
GLENN: And you will be participating in them. And are we sending you out? We've got a couple of people we're considering sending out to conventions, and I think you'll enjoy our coverage. When is it, two, three weeks away, two weeks?
STU: Not too far. It's definitely in August, right? Two weeks away, something like that? I'll find out the date.
GLENN: I mean, I don't really care what they even say inside. I really don't. I mean, this is just going to be no, this is going to be good to cover. It's going to be good to cover. So and we'll have it covered for you.
STU: August 5th through the 28th, Glenn. And community credentials are now available.
GLENN: But I have to volunteer.
STU: Yeah, they are sending the homeless people to the zoo for the weekend but you can get credentials if you are in the community and nonhomeless.
GLENN: Maybe you can volunteer driving people that are homeless to the zoo.
STU: What about if we volunteer what if we start taking some of the people they sent to the zoo and driving them back to the convention?
GLENN: You know what, Stu, I'm thinking? I'm thinking part of our coverage should include a homeless bus taking those people from the zoo back to the convention area.
STU: Because that's the place to be. I mean, that's where you are going to get big donations. Remember that all the Democrats are the ones that care.
GLENN: Free rides for the homeless back to the cameras.
STU: >From no
GLENN: We could only drop you off right here in front of these cameras. Sorry.
STU: It's not like the Democrats wanted to remove, by giving them movie tickets what's happening here?
GLENN: That is the most I mean, I can't believe. I said to somebody last night, I said, you know, they are shutting down dissent, they are disinviting their own delegates. I mean, who's more angry? The Hillary people over the Obama people or the conservatives that feel like they've been abandoned completely? Who has a right to be more and you don't hear anybody and I'm checking into it. You don't hear anybody silencing people at the Republican convention, do you? They are doing it. And they're sending the homeless people to the zoos. Then they're building this warehouse Guantanamo Bay now in Denver. I mean, the stuff that these people are doing, the hypocrisy. And I said to somebody, where is the Democrat that says, my gosh, what has my party turned into? Where is that person? Where is anyone on television and the media that is doing the same thing that I'm doing with the conservative side? Where are you? Is there no one in the Democratic party that is outraged that the American people are being sold a pack of lies?
