    As Sean said on his radio show, Stewart et al seriously invested in this comedy bit. A video of libs begging Sean to stay - including an actual Broadway star number. http://m.comedycentral.com/tds_video.rbml?id=sean-of-the-fled---stay-mr--hannity--stay Sean was flattered. Of course it just reassures the Stewart audience that Sean Hannity and all conservatives are evil racist intolerant bigots while the audience remains so very tolerant.

    “Yes, apparently the Healthcare.gov website has 99 problems, but a glitch is all of them,” Stewart joked. After playing a clip of a news report outlining the problems users are having with simply logging in on the website, he then noted that “the first step” doesn’t even work. The horrific rollout of Obamacare has left Democrats completely unable to “spin this turd,” he added.

    Funny man Jon Stewart says it’s a catastroph@!, while showing a clip of largely old, white congressional Republicans. Paid-faker Stephen Colbert calls it a “pin prick” in imitation of Sarah Palin. He then reckons the pin prick in relation to the economy, which he shows as fragile as a balloon. Cheap laughs that would be funny, if of course, they were … funny. But they are not meant as humor. “When a humorist ventures upon the grave concerns of life,” said Mark Twain, “he must do his job better than another man or he works harm to his cause.”...

    Many members of Congress hope that their names will make it into the history books. But freshman Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) has already accomplished that goal, albeit outside the political arena. He has three world speed records and plenty of books to his name. Stewart is an Air Force veteran, and a former Rockwell B-1B Lancer pilot, or “bone driver.” In 1995, Stewart helped plan and execute a mission code-named “Coronet Bat,” which saw a flight of the swing-wing bombers launch from Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene, Texas, and fly nonstop around the world in 36 hours and 13...

She did, too. Both knew sex was part of the plan when they left the discotheque near Stuttgart. Two months later, however, her story changed and the highly-decorated combat veteran found himself facing rape and kidnapping charges.

    SALT LAKE CITY — Ten years after her kidnapping, Elizabeth Smart is preparing her story of being held captive by a homeless street preacher, her improbable rescue after nine months, and how she advocated for children after the ordeal. St. Martin's Press bought the rights to the memoir from the now 25-year-old senior at Brigham Young University. Smart married a fellow Mormon missionary, Matthew Gilmour, in February. The account is being written by Utah Congressman-elect Chris Stewart, who has authored books with religious and patriotic themes. He was elected in November to serve in the 2nd Congressional District, replacing Jim...

    Breitbart - Big Hollywood ^ | 08/12/12 | Amelia Hamilton
    Jimmy Stewart is perhaps the best known of the celebrities who served, partially because he chose to serve while already a successful movie star. However, having come from a military family (both of his grandfathers had fought in the Civil War, and his father served in both the Spanish-American War and World War I), he saw it as his duty and was more than happy to serve. Stewart already held his private pilots’ license when he was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1940, but was rejected for being below the required weight of 148 pounds. Rather than going back...

Clip 1: Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker survives a recall election, and the news networks embrace custom as extensions of the winning and losing campaigns. (04:34) Clip 2: Samantha Bee reports that normally mild-mannered Wisconsinites, incensed by the failed effort to recall Governor Scott Walker, are showing symptoms of douche fever. (03:06)

Of course Jon Stewart is a socialist. But like all elitist millionaire socialists, he's one who sees himself as or who intends to be The State, should he win the day. In other words, Stewart would like to be the "benevolent" overlord who tells us what's best for us, especially in areas of speech, an area Stewart is desperate to control. What is so appalling...

    Over in Rolling Stone, Jon Stewart, "the Walter Cronkite of this generation," frets that the president hasn't done more to circumvent the Constitution's separation of powers: I’m surprised at how much he deferred to the legislative process. He’s accomplished some things, and I’m sure he’s pleased with what he’s done, but I would have preferred to see something a little bit more transformative. Stewart is in his mid-forties and obviously steeped in pop culture. He must have seen the "How a Bill Becomes Law" episode of "Schoolhouse Rock" a couple of hundred of times by now.

The revelation that the swanky 28th floor suite was semen-soaked is contained in a footnote in a New York State Supreme Court recommendation for dismissal filed by prosecutors with the Manhattan district attorney’s office.

Stewart blasted the magazine for deliberately finding an unflattering photo of the Congresswoman, arguing “you’ve got to go pretty far” to find an unflattering one, listing examples of Bachmann making “yelling into a bullhorn” look attractive, and giving editor Tina Brown a dose of her own medicine.</p>

    NEW YORK (TheWrap.com) - Jon Stewart says the worst part about conservative complaints of media bias is when they contain "a kernel of truth" -- and that conservatives have a point about Newsweek's unflattering Michele Bachmann cover. The cover describes her as "The Queen of Rage." Stewart called Newsweek out on Tuesday's "The Daily Show" for using cheap attempts to undercut the Minnesota representative and Republican presidential candidate. He mocked the magazine's statement that it ran the photo to capture the way she has galvanized Iowa voters. "I get it, Newsweek," Stewart said. "You put in 'The Queen of Rage'...

On Wednesday Democratic legislators Mimi Stewart, Kiki Saavedra, John Arthur Smith and Luciano "Lucky" Varela slapped the governor with two lawsuits over her line-item vetoes in an unemployment bill and a housing bill. The unemployment bill would have required businesses to pay more into unemployment benefits. The governor chose to take out the line that specifies the amount. Lawmakers argue she can't do that because it's not an appropriations bill. The second bill allocated $150,000 to the Mortgage Finance...

    In January of 2009, huge numbers of eager liberals made the trip down to Washington D.C. to celebrate the inauguration of Hope and Change. The mood of the day was optimism. The big change had finally come. Nearly two years later, they returned to Washington D.C. on buses for Jon Stewart’s clownfest, but the mood had changed. Contempt had replaced optimism. The left wing of the Democratic party had reverted to its Bush era sneers and jibes. The mocking costumes and signs had been staples of Anti-War rallies and Anti-Bush rallies from 2001 to 2008. But this was not a...

    During the Democratic primaries in 2008, Rush Limbaugh famously launched "Operation Chaos" to keep the divisive contest between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton going. The Jon Stewart "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" might as well have been the product of an "Operation Diversion." How to keep as many liberals as possible safely in thrall to their own smug superiority and distaste for the rough-and-tumble of political persuasion? Give them a rally a few days before the election where they can amuse themselves with their ironic signs and their highhanded dismissal of anyone not as exquisitely reasonable as they are....

    Yesterday Dana Perino suggested that President Obama’s scheduled interview with Ryan Seacrest was just the White House giving him something to keep him occupied on election day. Considering Obama opened the interview by thanking Seacrest for “taking the time” one wonders if she wasn’t making a good point. In the friendly nine minute interview Obama touched on the usual talking points, reiterating a number of times how important it is for young people to vote, that immigration reform is still a top priority for him, and that despite everything he remains optimistic about the country.

    Jon Stewart raised a lot of eyebrows over the weekend when the “Rally to Restore Sanity” showcased Yusef Islam, a.k.a. Cat Stevens. Islam has over the years said a lot of radical things including a number of comments where he essentially endorsed the infamous fatwa against Booker-Prize-Winning novelist Salman Rushdie. Islam has since tried to backpedal, but it’s hard to disguise his radicalism. (Snip) I spoke to Jon Stewart about Yusuf Islam’s appearance. He said he was sorry it upset me, but really, it was plain that he was fine with it. Depressing.
  • Sanity and/or fear meet comedy - or not

    If you are a big fan of Comedy Central's Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, you probably got a big kick out of the title of Saturday's "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" on the National Mall in Washington. The motto was "Take it down a notch, America." Keep it up, comedy guys. There's nothing like being told you're a ranting fool if you don't like watching America go deeper and deeper into debt. Forget about wooing those folks. Hold a rally that's bound to alienate those who aren't in on the joke. Stewart and company portrayed the rally as non-political....
