I’m in my mid 50’s and I’m amazed at how many of my classmates admit to...even brag about...getting most of their news from Jon Stewart. Of course, I went to High School in NJ and most of my classmates are still residents of the Garbage...err Garden State.
I would advise keeping up with what he's doing and saying. It's easy enough; they guy only puts out an hour of content a week.
Most of it is cheap, snide and unremittingly ugly. He looks like Zeppo Marx--I'm old enough to remember when comics could make me laugh. I think about Carol Burnett, Red Skelton and all the comedians of the past that didn't need to say f*** and sh** or invent crude names for bizarre sexual activities to get a ...laugh? It kind of gives me the creeps that people think they're laughing.
And if you listen to his audience, the creep factor goes up. They don't laugh so much as howl and hoot like drunken frat boys, they make the racket to validate Stewart in his crudity and obscenity and cheapness.
Stewart is like an open sore, every day a new runny drip of bacteria--
Of course, I went to High School in NJ...
...just curious, if you don’t mind...where did you go to school in Jersey?
