  1. Gotta love John Stewart. No one could describe what Fox News does and how it does it so succinctly and accurately in such a short bit.

  3. I'm surprised the republicans haven't tried to assassinate him by now. lol

    He may be getting older but he's still hot in my book. Cute+smart will always be the formula for sexiness!

  4. "What is wrong with being a socialist?"

    Impractical policies and an underlying impetus to eradicate individual identity spring to mind.

  6. This was a really odd segment that took up the entire first half of the Daily Show and basically boiled down to this:

    Roger Ailes: Jon Stewart told me he was a socialist.

    Jon Stewart: Oh, yeah? Well, Fox News is simply conservative rhetoric disguising itself as news.

    Roger Ailes: But you did say you are a socialist?

    Jon Stewart: Well, yeah... but here is what I mean by the word "socialist"...

    Roger Ailes: But you have identified yourself as a socialist?

    Jon Stewart: Well, yeah.

    Not exactly one of the "gotcha" moments we expect from Stewart vs. Fox News.

    Socialism is no more impractical than capitalism - either in their purest form are ridiculous, unachievable ideals. A healthy society requires healthy doses of both.
