Good grief, nerdy and boring. He looks to the future and all he can see is we interact with our TV while we watch a game show and we can answer the questions. Holy Cow! (I used to do that as a kid watching G E College Bowl. Our interaction was yelling real loud.)<br><br>I usually don't watch TV during the week but you got me to flip on the DVR to watch him. That was awful. You did warn me so I can't complain.<br><br>
okay, i pulled up my tivo version as well. nerd for sure, but the 14 year old comment gave me a chuckle.<br><br>okay, he knows techie stuff . . . how did he succeed at being a CEO? i mean, Jobs was cut out for leading, but i don't see Gates leading anything. obviously, it's worked, but . . . he even laughs like a nerd.<br><br>(i kinda like bill gates, fwiw)<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
Gates looks like an old lesbian (no offense to old lesbians.). Wow, that had to be the most scripted interview since the last infomercial I ever saw. "What do you have as a screensaver? Flying toasters?" (wait for cheap laugh). Gates, "No I have family photos come up..." I half expected Stewart to say, "But, you must charge a lot of money for all this?" And then Gates reply, "No John, And that's not all..." I will give Gates credit for saying Paul Allen and I and not me and Paul Allen.<br><br>On a side note I haven't watched the Daily Show in a while. I was surprised to see the Hillary bashing but, it was then followed by 5 minutes of Obama positive spin. I guess Obama is the Dems early choice. Without Daily Show spin I really don't see Hellary going far.<br><br>
Championing the phrase "Obamania" (Indecision '08: The Democrats' Clusterf*ck) and attaching his disembodied head to storm fronts on the weather map is positive spin, really?<br><br><br><br><br><br>the Daily Show clip<br><br>
The clips of Fox News anchor's squealing "Huge!" on their story of Obama studying at a school for terrorists? The only positive spin I saw last night was the giant Aqua-esqe MS logo on the backdrop during the Gates interview. But that was satire too.<br><br>
Stewart is a comedian, so he makes fun of whoever is in the news. It's not at all a surprise that he was poking fun at Clinton, or that he was poking fun at the adoration of the Obama (and that's what it was all about . . . not positive spin on Obama, just making fun of how Obama is presented). There's a clear and obvious reason why the Republicans have been the butt of jokes for the last several years. They've had control of everything in government. Now that the democrats have Congress, there've been many jokes at their expense, for instance about the non-binding resolution against the surge. Good jokes on a serious subject.<br><br>
