Excellent. Stewart is opening up his apeture and seeing the left sucks worser.

I don’t know about going that far—it would take a lot to convince me Jon Stewart is moving toward objectivity.

Bear in mind how hard he attacked Jim Cramer (left-leaner & big lefty contributor who had the gall to speak out a time or two against all the government takeovers), and how much less confrontational he was with Blagojevich (corrupt Chicago Machine politician).

It’s possible he’s just now realizing how in the bag he’s been for every big-gov’t control freak, but I doubt it. During the Bush/Kerry election I said if Kerry won he’d have no show to do.

Now that Barry’s in the White House and The Party has control of everything, he throws the occasional token criticism out of necessity since they run everything, but even then he leaves Barry out if it and frames it like Nancy and Bawney Fwank are just unfortunate exceptions here and there, oh and there goes that silly Biden again, making things awkward for Dear Leader...

Obama, Clinton Money Man Guilty Of Major Fraud Scheme Judicial Watch ^ | 03/19/2010

The shady Iranian fundraiser who for years donated lucrative sums to top Democrats—including the president, vice president and secretary of state—has pleaded guilty to a major bank-fraud scheme that could land him in jail for nearly two decades.

Disgraced Democratic money man Hassan Nemazee admitted this week that he defrauded three financial institutions out of nearly $300 million in loan proceeds by falsifying documents and signatures to show he had hundreds of millions of dollars worth of collateral. The Ivy League-educated crook then used the proceeds to donate big bucks to the campaigns of federal, state and local candidates.

Among them are some of the nation’s best known and most powerful Democrats, including Secretary of State and former New York Senator Hillary Clinton, President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. Nemazee was actually the national finance chairman of Clinton’s failed 2008 presidential campaign as well as John Kerry’s in 2004.

The corrupt “investment banker” went on to raise more than half a million dollars for Obama after Clinton’s primary defeat and donated the maximum ($50,000) allowed to the new president’s inauguration committee. Less than a year ago Nemazee hosted a $28,500-a-head fundraiser for Obama in his luxurious Upper East Side New York penthouse.

When Nemazee was criminally charged last fall, top Democrats scrambled to return his tainted money and there is plenty floating around the coffers of the party’s elite. For nearly a decade Nemazee was a key figure in Democratic fundraising circles, donating and gathering hundreds of thousands of dollars. Nemazee was so well-connected that in the late 1990s Bill Clinton nominated him to be a U.S. ambassador in Argentina though the position never materialized.
