Jon Stewart Looks at the Democratic Party's Vote for 'God': VIDEO


Jon Stewart looks at the chaotic voice vote that led to the reinsertion of "God" into the Democratic platform this week. I wrote about it here earlier this week.

  1. Hilarious. I never would have expected him to actually show the teleprompter. That was a Tea Bagger racist photoshop job.

    Villa-ridiculosa should have done what the lady said on stage. "Let them do what they want to do."

  2. I don't think you know what you are talking about Markus. Do you have a link/proof that "that was a Tea Bagger racist photoshop job".??

    BTW the lady on stage was telling him to declare that the "ayes" have it and let the "no's" scream and throw a tantrum if they want. It didn't matter how they were going to vote...the "ayes" were going to win because that's what the "party bosses" wanted. Period.

    Something similar happened at the RNC convention.

  3. What about the goofy Jerusalem thing? Pretty dumb.

  4. @Sargon Good point. The "Jerusalem thing" was really what most were voting on. I'm sure most of the people there believe there is a God, and either support or are neutral on whether He/She/It should be mentioned in a platform. The ridiculous thing is having to support Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not really going to help the peace process there.

  5. That "backbone" thing??? I guess not since Fox pundits made this decision for Dems. Guess if you squeeze Antonio's nipples hard enough...Hannity drips out covered in god juice.

  6. Actually, the whole thing is irrelevant. The platform is a non-binding statement that is there mainly to stroke the egos of certain wings of the parties. In fact, the planks usually reflect the more extreme factions. The Republican platform has language about abortion that does not provide for exceptions in the cases of rape and incest. But that is neither the policy of Romney nor the mainstream Republicans. (It is, however, the position of Ryan. Be afraid. Be very afraid.) So, the plank about Israel was probably the work of a small group of Democrats; it has never been Obama's policy.
