Quote of the Day: Steve Bodow

"Not drawing a paycheck is one thing. Not being able to write jokes about Pat Robertson endorsing Rudy Guliani? That hurts."
That's The Daily Show's head writer Steve Bodow in a New York Magazine article about his experiences picketing during the writers' strike. They're striking against the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers to get paid more for material that gets used online, and Bodow says the fact "That they're being such hard-liners about it only convinces us more that new media must be a goldmine."

The best picket line chant Bodow's heard came from Law & Order Criminal Intent show-runner Warren Leight: "What do we want? For the girls in high school who rejected us for the jocks to finally see how wrong they were! When do want it? Then!"
