"We Came, We Saw, We Sucked:" Jon Stewart Slaps Up Obama, Democrats
— Ace

You may or may not find this funny. (I don't; I don't think he's funny.)

But that's not the point.

The point is the bitter tears of failure, flowing freely, and the recriminations launched five weeks out.

I didn't watch it, but I'm sure that sums it up pretty well.

I will never stop being amused that after complaining for eight years that we shouldn't have a druggie for a president, the left went out and voted one in.

24 What is retarded is that this idiot, and all the like minded idiots, will still endorse the same policies that have been soundly rejected and repeatedly proven to be failures.

On the scant occasions Stewart decides to temporarily stow the clown nose and criticize Democrats, he's always always always doing it from the left.  Just like SNL, Letterman, Maher, et al.

So, from his perspective, there's nothing retarded at all about continuing to believe the same ruinous, tyrannical bullshit that he's always believed -- the problem lies with the implementer and the implementation -- not with the blueprint.

In Stewart's mind, Obama can only ever fall to the level of "incompetent", not to the level of "evil" where he belongs.

Oh lacey, they give to the "correct" charities.  You know like Bono's One organization.  That's why she was probably going on. To reassure them that giving to him is actually a good cause and not just the ego boost to bono and themselves along with grifting money from the supporters for whatever bullshit they believe.

Ace, I notice that you've incorrectly used the word "Steward" in your post title instead of my friend Jon's actual faux-last-name, "Stewart." I was just googling my name to perk up myself up after looking at the latest poll results and came across your error.

For shame, Ace. Please take care to avoid haphazard grammitcal mistakes and typos in the future. How can you ever expect to ascend to the high plateaus of Slate magazine and the Washington Post--where the real journalists ply their trade--if you cannot rid your scribblings of the most basic communication errors?

64 Between news of Rahm and Stewart (who apparently is of Scots descent) I find myself contemplating the logic used by american jews yet again. I believe some experts attribute their liberalness to an identification with other oppressed groups but it seems like that is a self-fulfilling identification particularly in light of Obama's relationship with mentor Professor Edward Said.

Posted by: Lincolntf at September 30, 2010 12:18 PM (Ly+aE)

74 I've been thinking about something the past few days.

We're always told there's a 'pendulum swing' in American politics, but that's not true.  That implies a gentle, regular motion from one side to the other, but, since the Left went radical in the1960s, we've had a quick jump to the Left, then a very quick jump back:   the Carter years, the first two years of Clinton, and now Obama.  Each time, we saw the Left and rejected it.  Only Clinton's lack of any moral commitment let him tack back to the Center and save his political ass.

With the Right, we move Right and then slowly drift back.  Reagan, certainly the most conservative President in this era, could have been re-elected to a third term if he'd been able to run.  Bush wasn't rejected as a radical in 2004, but his father was rejected for being a squish on taxes.

We don't have a pendulum swing.  We've got a center-right country that inevitably rejects Leftism on the national level, but with a very short memory.

Frank J. Fleming's take on the stupid-ass car metaphor:

Anyway, here’s how I remember things. I’m not sure how we got in the ditch, but I remember Reid and Pelosi were in the front seat grasping at the wheel. And then Obama came along and said, “I’ll get us out of the ditch. It will cost $100,000.”

And we were like, “That’s crazy. That’s way too much.”

And Obama said, “Too bad. You don’t have any choice to pay it! Now I better get to work.” So he started smashing the car with a sledgehammer while yelling, “Get out of the ditch! Get out of the ditch!” He completely totaled the thing, but eventually a piece of the car landed outside of the ditch and he was like, “There. I got it out of the ditch.”

And we said, “All you did was cost us a lot of money and make things worse!”

And Obama was like, “Are you saying I don’t know how to get a car out of ditch because I’m black?”  http://tinyurl.com/34vnd9e

Republicans have basically two false stereotypes.  Party of the Rich and Party of the restrictors of all thing fun and cool.  

John Stewart overlooks the party of the Rich meme now because he's rich but Republicans are still to him and his listeners those Victorian's that harsh everyone's social liberties.  He will sacrifice experiencing all  the bad of the Dems to avoid this horror. 

Posted by: polynikes at September 30, 2010 05:13 PM (m2CN7)

Someone should make a list of all the things Republicans have actually proposed or succeeded in restricting, and all those Democrats have.

As the precedent said "We can't set our thrmostats how we want, drive the cars we want, eat what we want, and expect the rest of the world to be okay with that." That's not restricting your fun, that's downright totalitarian.

111 Between news of Rahm and Stewart (who apparently is of Scots descent) I find myself contemplating the logic used by american jews yet again. I believe some experts attribute their liberalness to an identification with other oppressed groups but it seems like that is a self-fulfilling identification particularly in light of Obama's relationship with mentor Professor Edward Said.

Posted by: dagny at September 30, 2010 05:13 PM (KK4C+)

In the great migration of Jews from Eastern Europe in the late 19th century, there were both Jews who were entrepreneurs (like the ones who eventually became big shots in the garment industry and the founders of the Hollywood studios) and Jews who were secular Socialists.  My great-grandparents were sort of both: when they came over, they worked in the garment industry, he as a tailor and she as a seamstress.  He opened his own tailor shop, and she retained her lifelong loyalty to Communism -- she even took my grandmother and great-uncle on a visit to the Soviet Union in the 1920s to see how much "better" it was under Stalin than under the hated Czar.

So American Jewry has long had an affinity for the Left, made deeper as the children of the Leftist Jews became college professors and got the opportunity to indoctrinate the grandkids of the entrepreneurial Jews.

The Rosenbergs could have avoided the electric chair if they'd pleaded out.  They were absolutely guilty -- her brother David Greenglass had told the entire tale on them -- but they were so devoted to the cause of World Soviet Socialism that they preferred to leave their son an orphan.  That's how deep the idiocy runs in some of us.

In my great-grandmother's case, one of her friends from the old country made it out from behind the Iron Curtain.  When he came to visit my great-grandparents, he tried to explain to her how things for the Jews were as bad or worse under Stalin than they had been under the Czar.  My great-grandfather had to kick him out of their house because my great-grandmother was getting so worked up at his "lies."

I'm not talking about a conscious ideology.  I'm talking about a deep cultural trend--of hundreds of years duration.  Jews have been waiting for the Messiah for thousands of years.  A couple hundred years ago, several false messiahs appeared, crashed, and burned.  The resulting disappointment in turn led to a disillusionment with the whole concept of a supernatural Messiah and his reign.  So, instead, Jews have channeled that cultural energy into a secular messianic regime here on earth, i.e., socialism.

Just a theory--but I'm sticking with it.

Interesting that facts rarely got in the way. I had similar experiences with my older relatives who were completely naive when it came to the USSR. Even as a kid I thought they sounded pretty stupid.

My grandmother was a bit different. Her grandmother stayed in Russia and was murdered by the Nazis. She saw the USSR as a country that had supported the people who killed her favorite person, and who behaved in much the same way. She never forgave them and never tolerated the bullshit from her or her husband's idiot relatives.

It's not that the Jews who were attracted to Communism were attracted to its authoritarian aspects -- the Jews who came to the US in the late 1800s never saw that authoritarianism first-hand -- but they reacted against the oppression of the Czar and thought that Communism would create justice and equal rights, two things European Jews had long been denied.

But looking at Israel, there is hope: founded as a Socialist state, the Jews of Israel eventually figured out that economic liberalism (in the classical free-market sense) is the only system that works for building a prosperous nation and people.  It will take a while longer for the Leftists of American Jewry to come to the same conclusion -- possibly the meltdown of Obamanomics will demonstrate to them that their preferred economic ideas are crap.

That said, the Catholics I know personally are almost all lapsed Catholics (and mostly agnostic, so they claim).  That's low for statistical sampling, but I wonder how many Catholics (here in the States) are only Catholic because Mom and Dad are/were?

That said, there are a fair number of Methodists and Baptists who are raging Liberals, so it could just be one of those things...

The Catholic vote went 50-50. However, for catholics that attended mass weekly it was 85-15. Many douches call themselves catholic but aren't. The Church also massively FAILED to catechize from about 1965 to 1993. They didn't have a catechism, you see, so they just made shit up most of it centering around the social justice marxist bullshit promulgated by the far left, and oh yeah, butterflies are free.

Alas, there is a very valid point about way too many Catholics voting for liberals who are supposedly pro-life, such as Suckpak and Bob Casey Jr.  My pet theory on this is that a number of Catholics impute on the government what they should be doing themselves - caring for and comforting the poor.

Liberation theology is the type of amalgamated religion that feeds on negative political sentiments by fueling hatred.  It is what John Paul II referred to as the shining darkness of corruption.

Yeah they are reportedy throwing in the towel in Kentucky, Florida, and likely Ohio.

Supposedly they are finally going to pull the plug.

I don't think it will be too long, she's lecturing the Tea Party with stuff like this:

The Republican Party should serve as a big tent, Snowe says. “It’s where I grew up. It’s where I grew in the Legislature in learning how to govern and how to legislate — which is to build bridges. That’s what Maine has been all about.”

The worst of the RINOS like her are going to try and suck Tea Party schlong as much as possible and keep their jobs until they can sabotage and discredit the movement.  They want things to go back to a nice comfortable quiet clusterfuck they can control.

I bet Snowe is hoping to find a crazy violent racist Tea Partier as much as Jon Stewart is.

You know, this president is such a failed president in so many ways.  And the talk about liberation theology and Pope John Paul II got me thinking about John Paul's life, he spoke 12 languages, lost his mother at age 8 and his sister and brother before he was 20, he worked as a laborer, studied the classics and excelled at sports.  And was a great communicator and writer who understood the evils of socialism.  

While in central america 15 years ago in the land of liberation theology, I  remember reading John Paul's book 'Crossing The Threshold of Hope' a book of unbelievable insight and wisdom, from a true leader.

And now in 2010, a man-child attempts to lead the United States, a dream of many and a leader of not.

She's a favorite of TMZ and the deviated pre-vert who started it. She has stuck her nose into every case from OJ Simpson and Octomom to oppressed illegals like Whitman's ex-maid. If any kind of twisted "feminism" is involved, you can bet your ass Gloria has her hooks into the case.

Not like my friends Chesi, Lark, and Gustav who I hung around with all the time atthe National Coffee party convention and totally friended on facebook afterwards. You morons probably don't even have friends. And the only person you talked to on your trip to Nashville was the clerk at the airport Au Bon Pain. Well, you actually didn't talk to her. But you thought about telling her where you were going and how important you are but you chickened out because she probably doesn't get your super-deep intellectualism and anyway, who wants to be bothered with some dumb chick who works at an airport? Sorry, I need someone more creative than that.

Yeah, so as lame as you are, and as hilarious as I am (I invested sarcasm...no I didn't, I was just being sarcastic, stupid)  I'm still depressed. You see, Mr. 2004 just seems to be Mr. Stupid. Seriously, how many fucking times do we good little Democrat browneye-goblins have to hear that fucking car-ditch parable? It's like being Hitler's toilet.

I hate to say it, but John Kerry wouldn't do this to us. All you fucking other trolls know its true. John Kerry rides a custom built Serrota titinaium road bike.

Posted by: AllenG

I think your statement doesn't contradict the previous. You're both saying that Teh Won doesn't know why his righteous actions haven't lead to a spectacular recovery. He is ignorant of the economy as a whole and how his policies interact with it.

There is a question, I suppose, whether or not he actual believes that european socialism is actually good for the US economy or if he is more concerned with 'leveling the landscape,' rich people bad, poor people need big government in order to prosper.

Dinesh D'zousa was guest hosting for Dennis Prager today and essential gave a 3 hour lecture on his book about Obama. His precis is that Obama is motivated by a stagnant anti-colonialism in which the US has become the inheritor for the evil British Empire. He wants to have the third world colonies become more powerful at the expense of the old colonial masters. Hence Obama's spiteful treatment of the UK and his deference to every anti-anglo, third world despot.

O/T: Fuck Darrell Issa. He's on MSLSD right now, weaseling about going after the criminals and traitors in the White House and Congress, backing off on the principled statements he has made in the past, and giving Pissy Chrissy a dandy blowjob in the process.

Chill.  He's likely playing to his audience.  You don't go on MSNBC to target your base; you go there to appeal to the "independent" middle of the road voters.

Sure, the audience is only about 18 people running on a treadmill at the gym where they have MSNBC on the TVs, but every vote counts.

337 RE: Gene Simmons politics.

Generally, from what I can gather he's what I call a soft Libertarian: he's big on personal freedoms and capitalism, but what separates him form being a capital "L" Libertarian is his immense support for the military. He's done a lot of performing overseas for the troops, and they seem to love him in return. (At the end of the Gene Simmons Roast on Comedy Central he was presented with an American flag that had flown in Iraq and you could see he was genuinely moved by it, practically to tears.) But otherwise he's not a big social issues conservative.

A Simmons quote from a KISS bio:

"I'm VERY patriotic about America. It made everything possible for me, and I've always read my own comments and I come off sounding like one of these hard-hat guys. You know, "If you don't love America, then get the fuck out." Ted Nugent said something that comes off very right-wing yet there's something emotional inside me that said, "yeah, that's right." It was, "If you don't speak English then get the fuck out of America." Now, that's not right. Yet, on the other hand, I'm thinking, "I'm from another country [Israel] and if this country is gonna give me everything and anything I ever wanted . . . Social Security, free libraries, free political thinking, I can tell the president to go fuck off, do anything I want to do. I will not disappear off the streets, then that's right. Learn English or get the fuck out."

Gloria Allred has been shredded on Levin's radio show. Levin forced her to state the gravamen of her action and drum roll here . . . Allred's claiming her client had to use her own car and is owed mileage.

And when forced to verbalize this BS, Allred goes onto the pre-fixe meme of well . . . the rich and famous like Meg Whitman have rights and housekeepers should have rights as well.

And apparently, illegal alien housekeepers can act as righteous indignants while inhabitating a country that they unlawfully entered and forged their way through, while taking advantage of the United States'goods and services and laws.

340 332: "Parody of what though?..I don't think so.  I think it's a threat." It's clearly a threat. They try to use humor to soften it, but it just makes it even creepier and more menacing. A few more of these and the greenies are going to see people coming after them to conduct a little pre-emotive self-defense.

I think you missed the best part, Levin asking Allred if she, as an attorney, was comfortable with putting her client at risk by freely admitting the commission of a felony.

Allred never answered, BTW, but she sure as hell got huffy about Levin "not letting her talk." I wouldn't have let her go on as long as she did if it was my show.

346 re: gene simmons politics. there's a movie called "the last angry man" from the '50's. b/w, very 50's title about an old, immigrant, jewish doctor in a latino gang ruled neighborhood of brooklyn or the bronx (very 'naked city'). he gives his service for free or trade or kindness (some of those old guys still exist). but the title is a misnomer. he's not angry. there is no anger ('cept from the yoots). the story revolves around a madison ave. pr guy (another '50s standby) who wants to use the guy for a human interest story. but there's one touching scene near the end when the dr. explains himself to the ad guy that's pertinent: he tells of his coming to america with nothing & no english & points to his bookshelf. he read twain, melville, etc. he loves america and wanted to be american. the new political immigrants... they no have this goal; they no want speak gringo....

348 ... my point is not that you must speak english as a lithmus test (your loss otherwise in more ways than one) so much as it illustrates the difference between the 50's idea of the "melting pot" and todays divisive "multiculti" idea, of factions, of group identity think and political pride and resentment.

People need to start taking this stuff seriously.  Europe has already started criminalizing speech and banning political parties on the pretense of "hate".  Once you lose the ability to protect yourself through the political process, you are at their mercy.  Do you really want to find out what these people are capable of then?
