Republicans, E! is the network your closeted gay son likes to watch. Democrats, E! is the network your openly gay son likes to watch.”
— Joel McHale, star of NBC’s Community and E’s Talk Soup, during his hosting gig at the annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington, D.C.

It was a little more nuanced:
“I also host a show called “The Soup,” which is on the E Network. (Cheers, applause.) Thank you. To Republicans in attendance, E is the channel that your deeply closeted gay son likes to watch. (Laughter.) Democrats, it’s the same channel that your happy, openly gay son likes to watch. (Laughter.) E is also home to the Kardashians, who, believe it or not, are Republicans. And I know that, because they’re always trying to screw black people. (Groans.) Yep. Now just the men. OK. (Laughter.)”
Really I should have said “pointed” not “nuanced” just lazy writing.
