[ scattered cheers ] >> jimmy: yeah, the roots make people happy. that's what we want to do on our show. now we're going to make people think. >> oh, god. >> jimmy: no, no, no. we'll have fun. >> all right, let's -- >> jimmy: we can talk about some -- some politics. >> oh, yeah. >> jimmy: maybe like, president obama, the big story. the iraq is now -- >> different. >> jimmy: new dawn? >> yeah. >> jimmy: it's called now, "operation new dawn." >> "operation new dawn." which -- it's a bad name. >> jimmy: it's not a good name. >> it's a bad name. it sounds ironic. >> jimmy: it sounds like a "twilight" movie. [ laughter ] >> yeah. >> jimmy: doesn't it? >> it sounds like the third in a series of something. >> jimmy: yeah. >> yeah. >> jimmy: so it's "operation new dawn." >> "operation new dawn." >> jimmy: how do you think the president handled this whole thing? >> well, you know, he gave the speech that you need to give, because it is "operation iraqi freedom," 7 1/2 years becomes "operation new dawn" which is not a combat mission. and so, everybody's very nudgy about saying "the war is over" because of george bush in the flight suit on the aircraft carrier saying everything's fine when it really wasn't. but you sort of have to market and make it a very serious
speech. the president very much wants to be not divisive. and he does not talk about george bush. and he doesn't like to talk about bush policies, but it was sort of weird, i think, to talk about the war ending and then not talk about what the war was for. about how it started. and so i think obama's never going to be the kind of president who says, "hey, this war was a bad idea, huh?" but that's sort of the subtext to the whole idea that it's ending. so it's -- i was just in iraq. i just got back. i was in baghdad this month. and there's 50,000 americans still there. and it's still a very dangerous place. and the war was a really bad idea in the first place. >> jimmy: it really was, yeah. and how long were you there? >> i was there about a week. >> jimmy: that's probably long enough, huh? >> yeah. well, it's hot. in baghdad in august is lovely this time of year. >> jimmy: and where do you stay? do you stay in a hotel? >> no, i flew in commercial and spent time out in baghdad.
but we stayed in the green zone. and the green zone is weird. they've carved off this whole huge part of the city and decided to call it the international zone. they don't want you to call it the green zone anymore because that implies that everything outside the green zone is the red zone. so instead they call it the international zone, which is much more sort of like a hotel term. >> jimmy: when tgi fridays became tgif. we're not that place, we're a new place. >> or kentucky fried chicken isn't fried anymore, they're just kentucky f. chicken. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: kentucky f. chicken. we don't want to say fried. we're just kfc. >> we're just kfc. >> jimmy: we're just having fun. >> we're "f" chicken. [ laughter ] but the weird thing is when you leave the international zone, don't call it the green zone. and you go into baghdad proper to go meet with people in baghdad, everybody in the military still says, "you're going into the red zone!" >> jimmy: yeah. >> well, you know -- >> jimmy: they all know it. they all know it. double down is two chicken breasts and bacon and a piece of cheese. tasty sandwich. >> messy. >> jimmy: yeah. speak of tasty sandwiches, you went to new orleans recently.
>> yeah, i've had had a lot of travel this summer. >> jimmy: yeah, what is going down. >> i went to afghanistan and then i was back for a couple weeks and then i went to iraq and then right away after going to iraq, i went to new orleans. >> jimmy: now the shows -- you're going there with your show? >> yeah. you know, and it's -- and i should say this, that it is sort of an acknowledged truth in the new business, that whenever you leave your studio, your ratings go down. no matter where you're going, even if you're going to cover something very exciting, your ratings go down. it just happens when you leave the studio. and so it is this big sacrifice for the company to say, "yeah, maddow. you can go and take your show to these places and do reporting and learn this stuff." and i feel like i do learn so much. the learning curve, once you go to these places, it's like -- you learn so much. so i feel like it's really cool that the company lets me go because ratings go down every time we do it. >> jimmy: yeah, but now they're back up. you're back home. and you went to new orleans. >> new orleans, i'm still full. i got back from new orleans on saturday. i am still full. i'm like one meal a day. >> jimmy: there's a lot of food there. >> oh, my gosh. >> jimmy: they love food there. >> i would eat, like, six or seven meals a day.
>> jimmy: training for iron man or something. [ laughter ] >> you don't think that you are. it's just that everything involves a po-boy like no matter what you're doing. >> jimmy: mother? did you go to that place? >> no, i went to parkway though. i went where obama went when he went with his daughters. >> jimmy: i heard mother's is the way to go. >> really? >> jimmy: yeah, i also heard that's the po-boy. >> want to go back and eat? >> jimmy: yeah. no, you just eat -- they just serve you so much. it's insane. food and drink. >> oh, yeah, the drink. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, yeah. i mean, that's so good. >> i had a dinner at commander's palace, which is this, like, institution, like, amazing fancy restaurant in new orleans the last night that we were there. and i had seven rounds of cocktails with dinner. >> jimmy: you were -- you were an ace. you were mixologist, i would say. you were an ace at making cocktails. when we come back, if you don't mind, you're going to teach me cocktails. >> you want to do seven rounds?

[ light laughter ] >> jimmy: it is an unbelievable show. it's like an exercise, a workout for your brain to watch this show. it makes me laugh so hard. >> it's an exercise in obnoxiousness. >> jimmy: it's very funny. >> thank you. >> jimmy: i saw a billboard, i was out in l.a. i happened to see a billboard. this is right by chateau marmont. >> yeah. >> jimmy: look at this billboard. there you go. that's you there.

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: there is no supermodels in your -- >> that sums up the show. no, the foot and the knee pretty much sums up the show. >> jimmy: why, because you're just that -- >> that obnoxious. [ laughter ] and that gross. >> jimmy: it is ridiculous though. so this is the second season of "delocated." and in this season, it's pretty awful. your wife and everyone leaves you. >> yeah, my wife and my son, they leave me in the very first episode in the pilot and leave me on my own. become single, gets a girlfriend, but then people start dying. a lot spectacular murders this season. it's pretty -- a couple cute murders. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's not what you call them. that's not how you describe a murder at all. >> some murders are cute. >> jimmy: no, they're not. >> murder is like art. it's in the eye of the beholder. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: let's agree to disagree, is that okay?

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: to a degree. >> to a degree, very nice. >> jimmy: you have events with "delocated" where you have people come on, everyone wears a ski mask, and people disguise their voice and it's -- you have burlesque dancers, yo la tengo came dressed in a ski mask. >> yeah, i've done some live shows just around town. like, some witness protection program variety shows. [ light laughter ] various performances, stand-ups, we had a ventriloquist, the dummy had the mask on. [ laughter ] these burlesque dancers, yes, yo la tengo was kind enough to do a show and they wore the mask and had the voices altered and it was pretty nice to hear them sing -- i think they sang "sugarcube." >> jimmy: do you do anything? >> i've done some singing in the shows, and it's very fun and i think that i would be great if we did it right now. >> jimmy: let's do it.
