Ok, I will say - Chris Rock's opening monologue was pretty good. Not great, but decent. And I will say he held himself back admirably, there were a few times I got the impression he wanted to say a lot more than he did... but he didn't. They should make a director's cut.
(Oh, and The Gap and Banana Republic are both owned by the same company - Gap, Inc. They also own Old Navy. I'm guessing that wasn't an intentional statement about the US and Iraq being owned by the same group, but just a bit of an oopsie there. If it WAS intentional it was one of the more subtle political jokes I've heard.)
