I believe everything I say in the show, but I don't walk around in my everyday life like some incensed [Grigory Rasputin]. If I did, do you know how alone I'd be in the world?
[on his "rants"] It's therapy. It's the same stuff I used to say to my shrink. I have a great place to rant: my show. Most people don't. Watch that ranting in real life.
