Our Never-Ending Election Season is a Good Thing


Famous British actor Michael Caine (A.K.A. Batman’s butler, Alfred) was on The Daily Show last night, when the conversation turned towards Britain’s upcoming election. He and Stewart criticized America’s never-ending election season style of campaigning. As soon as someone is elected (or even shortly before), everyone focuses on the next congressional and presidential elections.
This is [...]

Guess What, Arizona? “Reasonable Suspicion” is Already a Reality!


Arizona’s new law to crack down on illegal immigrants is causing quite the stir. San Francisco is thinking about boycotting the state. Lawsuits are forthcoming. Organizations are planning protests. And Jon Stewart is up in arms about how it gives police officers the authority to demand that people show proof of legal residence based on [...]

Revolt at Comedy Central


By now, we all know about how Comedy Central has censored South Park from showing the Prophet Mohammed. For their 200th episode, Trey Parker and Matt Stone reacted by showing Mohammed in a bear suit. This still wasn’t good enough and RevolutionMuslim.com, two of the operators of which I’ve met and have personally seen their [...]

Will the Tea Party Be Relegated to Being a GOP Sect?


The media is trying to paint the Tea Party as a branch of the Republican Party. Rather than being a grassroots movement, they view it as the mobilization of the loudest conservatives who would never vote for a Democrat anyway. They don’t even see it as a “movement,” something spurred by a specific issue, but [...]

Romney 2012 is Off to a Bad Start


President Obama has used Mitt Romney, who he accurately referred to as a “presidential candidate,” to defend his health care plan. And last night on The Daily Show, Rep. John Dingell (D-M.I.) described Romney as a supporter of the individual mandate and Jon Stewart remarked that Republican Senators actually proposed the idea back in 1993. [...]

What What What?! Jon Stewart Defends Tea Partiers?!


No, I did not put acid in your coffee. You read that right. Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart defended the Tea Partiers and criticized the media for painting them with a broad stroke.
In describing the Tea Party rallies yesterday, he said there was “the occasional f—-ing idiot,” which sounds like an insult [...]

I’m Tired of Fantasy World Interviews


I’m really getting tired of shows where guests discuss their grand goals that are just impractical and impossible to achieve. I’m more of a “details” type of dude. One such goal is eliminating nuclear weapons. Sorry, until some magic weapon or defense mechanism makes them obsolete, in which case we’ll be worrying about a new [...]

Expect Another Round of the Right-Wing Extremist Debate


Rachel Maddow was on The Daily Show last night to promote her upcoming two-hour documentary featuring never-before-heard recordings of Timothy McVeigh discussing his terrorist attack in Oklahoma City. I don’t know how long this has been in production, so I can’t say if it’s airing is directly connected to anything, but think about the series [...]

Jon Stewart and I Ride a Two-Person Bicycle Together


No, not really, but I’m sure that’s what some of the comments below will say. I wrote yesterday about how even The Washington Times described the Obama Administration’s new nuclear strategy as only having “minor policy changes.”
Tonight, Jon Stewart accurately slammed some of the rhetoric coming from Fox News on the issue. He also hit [...]

George W. Obama Part 5


Jon Stewart went ballistic on Senator John McCain’s lack of a soul (from his point-of-view) last night on The Daily Show. I was going to write a rebuttal to this attack on McCain’s character, but I decided it’d be better to use it to lead into the next part in my George W. Obama series. [...]
