Seacrest…In? If So, World…Over?

From today’s New York Times piece on Larry King:

“When his tenure does eventually end, Mr. King said his first choice to succeed him would be Ryan Seacrest, the ‘American Idol’ host and disc jockey, presuming he is interested.

‘He’s the classic generalist,’ Mr. King said, his eyes peering through rectangular lenses that evoke flat-panel televisions. ‘The only thing I don’t know, and I’ve gotten to know him pretty well, is how versed he is in politics, world affairs. Does he read the paper? Is he interested in Iraq? Because if he is, he’s going to be very good.'”

Normally, we’d say something cutting here, but feel it would only be guilding the lily of stupidity.
