The other day, Roger Ailes claimed that Jon Stewart once admitted to being a socialist while they were drinking in a bar. And there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth. “How dare that wingnut say such a thing? What an awful thing to say, calling somebody a socialist. (NTTAWWT!)”
Gee, do you think he’s moved to the right at all in the past decade? No?
Sorry, lefties. If you want to bring up Jon Stewart’s CNN appearances to slam my boss, that’s fine, but you also have to accept this one. Jon Stewart is a socialist. Now that you can no longer deny it, get set to switch gears and dismiss it as no big deal.
You may begin.
