A Face Full of Clint Van Zandt: Part II
co Van Zandt's back on the air right now in all his mustached glory; he was actually on campus at Virginia Tech today, lending his two cents to the tragedy. He’s clearly had some highlights and a few tanning sessions since I last saw him on air. He strikes me as a bit naughty. Regardless of the horror of the topic, he always speaks with a lopsided half-grin, glinting mischievously at the camera like he's wearing lacy thigh highs under his suit. Even though he runs his own consulting company, Van Zandt spends most of his days lurking in the hallways at MSNBC, and if the opportunity arises to discuss a workplace shooter's rage or a horny school teacher's ill-placed desire, he pounces on it with relish. While he's waiting, he probably rummages through the MSNBC employee fridge, sniffing the contents of Tupperware containers, stealing fruit from Contessa Brewer. Then, when he leaves the Seacaucus studio each evening, he slicks up his mustache with man-grease and trolls Manhattan for dirty women.
