‘Drunk History’ Extols Daniel Inouye’s War Record

He may be gone, but the late Sen. Daniel K. Inouye, D-Hawaii, is not forgotten. Not even by the routinely punchy raconteurs who spin their webs on Comedy Central’s “Drunk History.”  

The alcohol-fueled civics lessons captured by the show , which has already been renewed for a third season, typically feature tipsy storytellers recounting the exploits of prominent socio-political figures.  

For Tuesday’s episode — airing at 10 p.m. — "Drunk History" turns its non-bloodshot eye on the Aloha State.  

The saga of Inouye’s nearly life-threatening charge into enemy fire during World War II is sandwiched between segments chronicling British Captain James Cook’s “discovery” of the Hawaiian Islands and the tale of surfing legend Eddie Aikau.
