The Decline and Fall of Russell Brand

"Russell Brand, what a c*nt." Those immortal words were issued by Boomtown Rats singer and savior of starving Africans Bob Geldof at a UK 2006 music awards ceremony, after the British comedian Brand had made cutting cracks at the stars in attendance. (Geldof's four-letter insult is much less offensive in Britain than America, and used mostly as an insult among men.)

Many conservatives – at least those who have heard of comedian Brand – would agree. Brand, who   starred in the hit Get Him to the Greek and the flop remake of Arthur, has been popping up on right-wing radar of late for his upstart elevation into the political realm, thanks to a few tangy tussles with the British media and his politically tinged semi-autobiography (his third at the ripe old age of 39) Revolution.
