Where is this Going John Stewart?

I used to really like the Daily Show, but Stewart’s interviews and commentary has only gotten smugger over the last few years. Watching Stewart interrupt Blair with asinine comments and his lackluster “analysis” was surely not his finest moment, although the crowd still found the need to hoot and holler like a bunch of morons at John’s simpleminded insertions.





Rob Riggle and John Oliver are still fantastic however.

I watched this last night. I couldn't agree more. I still enjoy the Daily Show, though its bias is too thick--I enjoyed the days of media-bashing more than I do the days of Republican bashing (no matter how much they often deserve it!)

Blair was fantastic, I thought (though I am both anglophile and Blair-fan) and I thought his statements about not being a fairweather friend when goaded to Judas Bush were very well done.

And what could Stewart say to the truth that no two democracies have ever made war upon each other? Nothing. Somehow when Blair says it, though, it just sounds so much better than when Bush or Cheney say it...

In any case, it was an embarrassing thing to watch, and Stewart's only saving grace was his gracious thanks and apology at the end. I think Stewart is a smart man, and funny, but he has narrowed his worldview too much like so many liberals whose hatred for Bush overrides all else.

I guess his scriptwriter had a bug for the last few days...

I really liked Blair on this.

Blair is a traitor to the REAL left. The only people who give a shit what this murder thinks are fake-progressive NECONS like THIS SITE.

You should all be ashamed.

Been getting a few comments as of late from the “real” left, proclaiming what it is that makes me and others like me apparent apostates on the left. As for being a “NEOCON” (with all caps even!), only a partisan fool opposes a policy because it is being pursued by the ‘other’ political party. If you can’t see that there are aspects of the NeoCon foreign policy that are rooted in internationalism, then I fear for you comrade.

Neoconism is certainly not unique to Left or Right.

Look at the interventionism of the Clinton years?

It was from those years that the Blair 'neoconservative' foreign policy was born.

You mean "NECON"!

LMFAO...

Yeah, Roland, I have already had my suspicion about your latent "NECONISM" ;-)

Once I figure out what NECONISM is, I'll let you know.

Sounds like a plan Snoopy. I look forward to your full report!
