Last night’s Daily Show was Jon Stewart at his finest (with the exception of a rather uncomfortable skit that included an Afro wig and overalls). His step by step takedown/analysis of the misuse of ‘Socialist’ in today’s society is phenomenal and exactly the kind of education the American public needs.
My personal fantasy is that someone at a Major Network, ie. NBC or what not, gives Mr. Stewart a nightly news slot. It’s remarkable to me that this ‘just a comedian’ is the clearest voice of reason in our media landscape today.
If you haven’t seen yesterday’s episode, go check it out!
It’s like if the C word and the N word had a baby.
