Forget “neither snow, nor rain, nor gloom of night.” Conan O’Brien on Wednesday unveiled a blackly comic new motto for the flailing U.S. Postal Service — one suitable for its current financial death spiral:

    Conan is a comedian, since his only expierience with the Post Office is sending his secretary to buy stamps, what he says is totally insignificant

    CONAN IS A JACKASS COMEDIAN THAT IS NOT FUNNY. HE FORGETS HOW HE CRIED LIKE A BABY WHEN LENO TOOK HIS JOB. I DON’T THINK THIS WIMP COULD LAST A WEEK WORKING IN THE POST OFFICE. OH YEA CONAN, WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH THAT HAIR????

    I have ALWAYS found Conan to be lame, unfunny & hardly worthy of his own show. Personally I think David Letterman, especially in his early days, is the best late nite guy, altho Craig Ferguson is certainly neck-and-neck w/ Dave. As a recently retired mailman of 16 yrs, I can enjoy a good joke at my former employer’s expense but like the previous comments of Rick & Lenny (I’m guessing they’re postal workers), I agree that Conan as well as other “comedians”, a category which certainly includes various politicians & media members, have no clue as to the pure BS & unbelievable lack of common sense that all USPS craft employees are forced to deal with on a daily basis while trying to perform their jobs in an efficient yet professional manner! So, I’ll just change the channel when Conan comes on & delete the derogatory emails but I’ll also sound a loud THANK YOU to all the folks, past & present, who have worn the USPS Eagle! God bless them & God Bless the USA, especially today!!!

    Its easy to beat on someone or something when they are down. What we have to remember is these are real people who may lose their jobs. That being said, the management style of the USPS over the last 20 years is as close to criminally negligent as it can get. I fear trying to come up with a solution in this current political climate. Our best bet would be to vote every current sitting politician out of office and start over. Unfortunately voters on the East and West coasts consistently make a joke of our ploitical process by voting in clowns.
