The search for the funniest president continues! Richard Nixon wasn't a cut-up, but few people inspired more laughs. Does he deserve a shot at the title?

This week's guest is Patric Verrone, a writer/producer for "Futurama," the TV show that made Nixon's head the president of Earth. We're talking about Nixon's second life as a cartoon, the qualities that made Nixon such an easy target, and Nixon's role in changing the very nature of presidential humor. To quote Zapp Brannigan, "Baby, it'll blow your mind."

PLUS: Patric's  amazing presidential hobby!
