Comedian Nick DiPaolo stopped by to promote some of his upcoming gigs and immediately launched into stories about Artie bumming Ambiens off him on their flight to Afghanistan. Nick said he gave him two and Artie scoffed, "Who am I? Calista Flockhart? This won't put my foot to sleep." Artie said they went to Afghanistan during his recent heroin relapse, but had managed to clean himself up enough to get by on Subutex for the week. Although he did add that he couldn't resist making jokes while he was there about the nearby poppy fields that supplied most of the world's heroin. Howard asked Nick what he thought of Sarah Palin and he said he loved her, adding that she will be the first VP he could pleasure himself to. Nick defended some of Bush's policies but acknowledged that the invasion of Iraq may have been a mistake, although invading Afghanistan did get him a gig. Nick said he actually thought Obama was a very smart guy and wondered why everyone always talks about him being black, discounting the fact that his mother was white.
