Adam Carolla calls me an a**hole and turns Paramount Theatre crowd against me

Last Saturday night, tucked snugly in the middle of the Paramount Theatre for the Adam Carolla and Dr. Drew Reunion Show, I found myself on the receiving end of some vitriolic crowd-work by Carolla, who called me an "asshole from some crunchy newspaper," among other things, and berated me for a good four minutes, twisting around a debate we'd had earlier in the week about McDonald's and obesity and basically calling me a lefty-lunatic with the intelligence of a bag of gravy, while 1,600 people laughed at my supposed idiocy.

Other than that, it was a great show.
