The whole winning the war with the gravesite backdrop was....
Jon Stewart is a brilliant speaker. He has a staff of many who work hard to give him the words to present which trigger his audience to question the pundits and look for deeper meanings, all the while laughing at the tragic.
He is a sharp dresser, who presents well, is likeable and mixes the proper level of humor, sincerity and yes on occassion biting irony. He truly understands the blight of Americans, and where our country needs to go from here. His unedited, raw, in depth analysis of our political landscape rings true. You can't help but recognise the Moore-ian values he espouses and you know therefore they are fact.
Stewart is a very funny COMEDIAN, who takes shots at politicians. Often more at conservatives than liberals, but he is an equal opportunity ENTERTAINER who is brilliant (at least he and his writers are.)
He could of course win if he was on the Democrat ticket with Martin Sheen in the role of Jeb Bartlett.
What next, gonna quote Jay Leno?
What do you think of your savior saying that the troop surge worked better than anyone could have envisioned? (anyone except McCain of course).
TAHL - just say it "Stewart is a college crowd suck-up". We've had many in the past, and will have more in the future. They change their act and politics with the demographic who are awestruck by them.
I forget who was talking about it, but he is probably the best (and possibly only) real media critic out there today. Any other talking heads point out the dismissal of Obama's community organizing by Palin and Giuliani (obnoxious in and of itself), while the crowd waved signs that said "SERVICE" and McCain encouraged young Americans to teach, to help and, uh, "serve."
John Stewart and Bill Maher are two of the best commentators on political issues.
"Stewart is a college crowd suck-up...they change their act and politics with the demographic who are awestruck by them."
A ridiculous opinion from someone who has no knowledge of the subject.
