Jon Stewart on Everything that is wrong with America…in under four minutes……

Yesterday, the new Credit Card Accountability Responsibility and Disclosure act went into effect—but not without controversy. And tonight on The Daily ShowJon Stewart brilliantly laid out both what’s wrong with American consumers and with credit card companies.

With his hilarious—and eerily accurate—rant, Stewart managed to do what many others have failed at: explaining how the country’s credit problem is exacerbated by the actions of those on both sides of the spectrum.

Stewart first explained that the problem with American consumers is that they not only desire a Champagne lifestyle on a Busch Light budget, but will take any opportunity to act on that appetite—even when painfully aware of the consequences of doing so. If you let them, they will spend, whether they have the money or not.

After his evisceration (sorry, had to) of consumers, Stewart took aim at the banks, hilariously describing the tricks they’ve used to historically bilk their customers out of as much extra money as possible, before even more hilariously highlighting some new tactics that were born from a theoretical leash imposed by the government with the newly-enforceable regulations on their business practices.

I’d say more, but the screen on my laptop is fading and I need to make sure I’m the first one to arrive at the Apple Store tomorrow to purchase a new one—just as long as my rate limit gets approved. Fingers crossed!

Jon Stewart on the Healthcare Summit and maybe progress?

Stewart Health Care

Expecting the health care summit to be a spectacle and political theater, Jon Stewart (who described himself as “bipartisan-curious’) was surprised last night to find that the discussion more closely resembled “the most boring seder [he’s] ever seen.” But that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing.

After mocking Republicans for showing up for a discussion yet clamoring for scrapping the bill, Stewart began to change his tune when noticing signs of progress. Sending him into a giddy celebration: an agreement between Tom “killing abortion doctors might not be such a terrible idea” Coburn and Charles “If I was any more liberal and Jewish I’d have tits and be Barbara Streisand” Schumer.

Stewart’s excitement couldn’t even be subdued by minority whip Eric Cantor, who still seemed intent on killing the bill and limiting government. Why? Because Obama stepped it up and put him in his place. Said Stewart: “You see how fast Obama took him down? That sh-t was Jedi!”

In the end, Stewart was encouraged by the progress and not even the skepticism from other media outlets (who “suck”) could bring him down.

Here’s the link for the video……

Politicians don’t do the Colbert Show…..But Obama would do the Jon Stewart Show……

Obama Fine to Face Jon Stewart, Will Avoid Stephen Colbert

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs–who recently joined Twitter–told Time‘s Swampland blog that putting President Obama on Letterman and Leno last year were “two of the easiest decisions” he and David Axelrod ever had to make.

So what about “The Daily Show”?

“I think the President would love to, just maybe not Colbert.” He went on to explain:”I have yet to see a politician best Stephen Colbert in an interview on his show,” Gibbs said, laughing. “I mean, he’s really, really good.”

Perhaps someone should have told Harold Ford Jr. that.

Yep…..

Jon Stewart visit's FOX News and finds them wanting…….

Jon Stewart, who already had a reputation for lobbing word grenades at media personalities and outlets that displease him, this week delivered one of the most sustained criticisms of Fox News ever heard on Fox News.

That network, lambasted by many on the left as an arm of the conservative movement, is a “cyclonic perpetual emotion machine” that has “taken reasonable concerns about this president and this economy and turned it into a full-fledged panic about the next coming of Chairman Mao,” Mr. Stewart told Bill O’Reilly of Fox.

Parts of the interview were shown on Wednesday and Thursday evenings on Fox News’s most popular program, “The O’Reilly Factor,” and were widely praised by television critics. But Mr. Stewart had a lot more to say about Fox in the portions of the interview that were edited out of the television broadcast.

This week, invited onto “The O’Reilly Factor” by its host, Mr. O’Reilly, Mr. Stewart asserted that Fox News was “the most passionate and sells the clearest narrative of any news organization,” then asked with a smirk, “are you still referring to it in that manner?”

Mr. O’Reilly defended Fox as a news organization and cited a poll last month by the Public Policy Polling organization that showed Fox News was more widely trusted than any other television news organization.

Mr. Stewart said Fox had been able to “mainstream conservative talk radio.” On television on Wednesday night, the exchange ended there. But in the studio, Mr. Stewart swung harder, saying Fox had mixed the “media arm of a political party” with “a little bit” of objectivity, something that White House officials have also asserted in recent months.

Fox News said the interview was edited only for time. A video of the unedited interview was posted on BillOReilly.com and on foxnews.com on Thursday night.

Listen folks…we all know where FOX News is coming fromn…it’s no secret…..But here’s a fact……The FOX news channel consistently out polls all the other cable channels…..not sometimes….all the time…a lot of some bodies watch their news…..even the Dog sometimes watches their news to see what the other half says……

There we said it…we sometimes tune FOX News in……Agh!
