So now we are comparing State run health care to Fed run? Oh, and why didn't they ask the peeps of the State if they think they should pay for their already socialised health care and everyone else's in the country? That really flew over well in Mass.

I enjoy Jon Stewart. He has incredible comedic timing. But he is not a credible news source so I have to assume that max sleeper is a kid that doesn't recognize that.

Be careful. If you pick on the Daily Show, you will be flamed into oblivion. People (mostly stupid little kids) think that Stewart is da bomb, yo. He speaks the truth!

He's funny. But he's hardly a news source.

Jon Stewart is both very funny and very liberal. He is a news sources for many in this country and that is tragic but no more tragic than those who take Rush seriously. There is an old saying that wit is both a sword and a shield and Stewart masterful in its use both ways. I watched Stewart interviewed by Bill Riley and he faired well but when pushed he fell back on the "hey I am just a comic" out. When he is called out for something he has his shield ready~

That is fucking stupid. Straight hogwash.

That is ****ing stupid. Straight hogwash.

So I can post an article/clip/etc. of any stupid thing I want and use, as a credible defense, "I didn't say it was credible"? I'll hold you to that standard when you criticize threads in the future.

You're talking nonsense. He posted a fucking clip from a comedy program that is pertinent to current political issues. There is exactly zero implication that it is meant to be taken as news; that is bananas. You yourself have posted threads in D.C. that weren't news links and no one was all "your opinion isn't the news it isn't credible blah blah."

tl;dr? Its dumb to think that every thread started in D.C. is discussion of a news source.

I don't just post it as a stand-alone. What was the purpose of just posting something that isn't credible and not adding anything to it?

Either as a "haha, this is funny" or a "this is my opinion." Both of those types of threads are posted in D.C. with regularity.

Saul Good,

You are a silly person.

That is all.
