Jon Stewart’s Only Explanation For Sarah Palin’s ‘WTF’ Moment? She’s A Russian Spy!
Mediaite ^ | 1/31/11 | Jon Stewart

Posted on 01/31/2011 11:27:38 PM PST by pissant

Monday nights of The Daily Show often serve as a recap of stories that broke later in the previous week, that sometimes have a “clearinghouse” effect that makes the episode feel less newsworthy. Occasionally however, there are great news moments — combined with very clever and insightful writing — that create comedy magic. Like tonight, when Jon Stewart took Sarah Palin’s “WTF” assessment of Obama’s State of the Union speech and came up with the only logical conclusion: Sarah Palin is a Russian Agent!

Sarah is a Russian spy? The whole democrat party is a marionette for the Russian foreign service.

After setting up the fallacies of her analysis, Stewart asked “Who would purposefully twist around historic facts and put out such a willful misunderstanding of the president’s words. I mean you’d you almost have to be actually be a Russian agent.” Stewart then took the absurd suggest to hilarious heights, adding “Don’t you see? She is a Russian agent! Most comfortable in long, northern winters. Her favorite color is…red! What is the mascot of Russia? A bear! You are totally a super-hot Russian spy!”

This hackneyed day old news joke might be funny if I was still stoned in my dorm room decades ago, but now? Not so much. First you have to agree that Palin was off base criticizing Obummer. She was right. I really don't see Jon Lebowitz as funny. This skit included.

I appreciate humor when it’s good but this is typical leftest junk. I wonder how many degrading jokes Jon Stewart has done on Sarah Palin compared to Obama.

About the only funniest thing was when Jon said that HE understood what the president meant.

The root of the problem is that for years now stupid young people have been watching other stupid people present the news on television, and they get to thinking that they can do so too.

The young stupid people attend higher education to excel in ignorance in order to position themselves for those jobs.

Once on the job their attitude is like dumb ass Dan Rather fretting for an hour if his collar should be up or down instead caring about the substance on what they are to report.

When you think it can't possibly get any worse then this Freak Show environment, it actually does get worse.

Now we got a comedian on the Comedy Channel referred by the NYT as “the Ed Murrow of our time.”

The only thing missing from this Freak Show of the Left is the clown makeup.

Stewart probably takes his statement as literal truth. If we’re going to have the FCC, can’t they do something useful and remove this clown from the airwaves?

I don’t mind humor that smacks conservatives but that was incredibly lame. That moron thinks there was some big difference between the “space race” and the “arms race?” The rest would work in a third grade lunch room I guess.

I thought this was about Jon Stewart’s so-called humor? To be funny it needed to be more clever than what Sarah Palin said and it missed that mark by miles.

Borrowing from Wiki (sort of)

Alonso Quixano (or Pissant), a retired country gentleman nearing 50 years of age, lives in an unnamed section of Washington State with his wife and a housekeeper. He has become obsessed with books of conservatism, and believes their every word to be true, despite the fact that many of the events in them are clearly impossible. Quixano eventually appears to other people to have lost his mind due to lack of sleep and food from dedicating all of his time to posting denigrating articles and comments about Sarah Palin on Free Republic.

Take care of Sancho. Bless is heart, he has to put up with two jackasses.

Elect Sarah Palin for President 2012

Re-Elect President Sarah Palin 2016

...Ronald Reagan said, “You can’t be for big government, big taxes, and big bureaucracy and still be for the little guy.” President Obama’s proposals last night stick the little guy with the bill, while big government and its big corporate partners prosper. The plain truth is our country simply cannot afford Barack Obama’s dream of an “exceptionally big government” that may help the big guys, but sticks it to the rest of us. - Sarah Palin

This is Palin Country. Palin is a Conservative. She speaks for many Conservatives. Many of us our confident that Sarah Palin would represent our choices of governing on a National Level.

Palin will be the Republican Nominee and she will be supported on free republic on a daily basis. Hopefully we'll have a live online chat with Sarah Palin one day on FR, and haters should be banned from the chat. LOL FR is Palin Country. Who is Jon Stewart again? Now Jim Robinson...his opinion is much more impressive in that he is 100% Conservative, as is Sarah Palin.

You're actually looking to pinhead for a cogent, reasonable post on a Palin thread? That's like expecting Iran's "president" Achmed I'm-a-dim-nut-job to be fair and balanced when discussing Israel. If you look in the dictionary for a definition of the word "unbalanced," there's just a photograph of pinhead, the urine-bug.

Speculation exists that he wakes up every day drooling and shaking until he gets his first few right-crosses in on Palin. Beating on women is his specialty. The same dissociative misogynistic behavior exhibits in many latent (or closet) homosexuals. In fact, the urine-bug may, in truth, be an unusually ugly woman.

Better to be a pisser than a hoser.

Better to be a Conservative who respects Palin's Conservatism than a poster who hates on Palin ad nauseam when posting on FR....While at the same time, rarely starting any negative Obama threads, or adding any negative Obama comments. When anti-Palin threads and comments far out weigh anti-Obama comments on FR, you know something is off.

Hoser is both a slang term and a stereotype, originating from and used primarily in Canada. Hoser: (n) Canadian hockey derogatory term that is similar to the American “idiot” or “loser”. slang. 1. noun: (derogatory) an oaf, or simpleton. Used as a negative, it basically means “idiot.”

It's nice to know where we can go on FreeRepublic if we need to know, definitvely, if something is funny. You obviously hav a keenly honed funny-bone there, Pindome.

Oh, by the way, about your tagline? I guess it's also your profile... hmmm..., anyway, your tagline/profile says "you don't live through" your life, anyway.

Actually, we do. In fact, we're doing it right now. Sure, we die at the end, but you do "live through" it. We all do. So your "joke" isn't actually funny or clever at all. It's just stupid. Stupid and wrong. In error.

Gee, maybe we shouldn't look to you for what's funny.

Pindome.

Wrong, read his letters and you will see that it not only bothered him he wrote them telling them what he thought.

You are playing right into their hands w/your hatred for one of the most articulate Conservatives in the Country. If you can name someone who carries our message better we’re all ears, but newsflash; Palin isn’t the enemy Obozo is.

Point well taken, Stewart is a jerk who shouldn’t be taken seriously but is.

Palin isn't the enemy but I can tell you who is on Fr.

The attacks are old and stale. Ol' pissy is a joke unto himself. Anytime we give a known woman hater (his tagline is fairly new and meant to quell the complaints) credence here at FR we may as well fold up and turn the keys over to the KOS kids.

The fact that Palin made the Daily show attack her for her comment shows she hit a homerun. The left only doubles their attacks when Palin is on target.

The WTF line stung them and they know it. there response? attack the messenger not defend the message. I would imagine the Obama admin/reelection campaign will now quietly bury the “winning the future” theme after a couple of weeks when the disappearance will not be noticed nor tied to Gov Palin and some new branding attempt will be used with a different theme.

In one sentence Gov Palin destroyed months of careful focus group research by the Presidents team and his kick off of the 2012 election.

Understanding this it is easy to see why the left/pissant attacks her on a daily basis. If they don't she wins.

I tend to see this type of Borscht-belt humor as similar to the potty centric humor that some immature adults seem infatuated as exampled by pissant/leibowitz’s humor reflecting some underlying ‘freudian’ issues regarding potty training and their mothers or some other ‘STUFF’ or something.....leibowitz would be much funnier if he were not just another leftist stooge. He needs to spread his glorious humor around the globe and target the other 75% of the population.
