I think Stewart is awesome. The Daily Show is very liberal, no doubt about it, but he can make fun of anyone and its funny. I laugh just as hard at his Kerry and Clinton bits as I do at his dubya stuff.<br><br>It was clear how good he is on that show when he left for a few days while his wife was delivering their baby. The co-star Steve Colbert took over as anchor and even though he is really funny and talented, it just plain stunk. He couldn't pull it off.<br><br>
Exactly. He points out the lunacy on both sides. The guy has a knack for cutting through all of the political BS, telling it like it is, and makes it funny, too.<br><br>It's why I find Michael's sig so interesting. He has pics of Conan O'Brien, David Letterman, Jon Stewart, and Jay Leno with the caption (paraphrased) "this is where most people get their news". Well, I'd much rather get my political news from Jon Stewart than from the CNN, the New York Times, etc. It's more reliable. <br><br>
That's because every joke has to have a bit of truth in it. It's a conflict of interest to show caskets arriving from Iraq and then cut to the next Boeing, or Lockheed Martin ad. The news outlets are for sale, so there's no room for truth in them anymore. <br><br>One thing that is refreshing about Stewart is that in the last couple of weeks you really get a sense that he's personally deeply troubled by the final report saying that we went to war on sexed up intelligence. He's showing a conscience, and that's non-partisan.<br><br><br><br>
I think Ed Helms had it right when he exposed the DNC and came right out and said the DNC is a partisan conference with an agenda to elect one man. <br><br>There's some hilarious Convention Highlights stuff here<br>http://www.comedycentral.com/tv_shows/thedailyshowwithjonstewart/ <br>Especially Stewart's last bit in video no 2.<br><br>
I've been watching their DNC coverage and I find it great how they point how the absurdity in many aspects of the convention. Why did they need dancers? My favorite part was when the daily show was showing all the clips of the various senators telling how their fathers' worked lower class jobs. That's supposed to prove to us what? That the senators making 6 figures understand the lower classes?<br><br>I can't wait until the RNC coverage.<br><br>-Matt<br><br>

The dancers were for the young people.<br><br>[color:purple]We're building up or tearing down <br>In everything we do;<br>Are you on the construction gang <br>Or on the wrecking crew? - Anon</font color=purple>
