I stopped watching The Daily Show the day after the ’04 election, because Jon Stewart’s open grief was too much to bear. (I was a different person then.)
Plus, once I saw through his Clown Nose Off/Clown Nose On routine — “You should listen to me because what I’m saying is important, but I’ll brush off your rebuttal by insisting I’m just a comedian” — it was like the optical illusion with the cows. It might take you a minute to see it, but once you do, you can’t unsee it.
Which just makes this all the more delicious:
“I still believe, I really do, that good government has the power to improve people’s lives.” Well, too bad, because you backed Obama instead.
Stewart tries to separate this from Benghazi, but all these scandals are really the same scandal: the Obama administration is utterly corrupt.
Like we’ve been saying for a while now.
Oh, and one last thing, Jon: When conspiracy theorists are vindicated, it’s no longer a conspiracy theory. It’s what we call, um, a fact.
