"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

The only reason these breaches of anti-nobama protocol is because he is allowing it.  Someone will pay as the public is misdirected.
As someone mentioned previously, there are no tales of woe among the populace at large.  The focus is placed upon the system's failures, not those who have been hurt by them.  Pavel Trofimovich Morozov as example.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Yep. It also allows the "journalists" to appear to gain credibility by criticizing their lord and savior.
By late summer they will have circled the wagons, and Obamacare will be an amazing gift that only their savior could have given them.

Allowing it? It is being encouraged! Jon Stewart is not a journalist. He is a comedian - and a rather witty one at that. He can always get a laugh out of me.

Sort of reminds me of Cabaret. 1930s Berlin, sex, drink and jokes about the Fuhrer by the MC to distract people from what is going on. A venting mechanism to keep the populace in check. After all, it isn't a problem if you can still complain about it, right?

I'm glad I'm not the only one here that can appreciate Jon Stewart. He smashes the Democrats all the time; he isn't afraid to call anybody out on their BS.

Why would you sit and complain, my friend?
The pain, it will go away
You know it's settled law my friend
Obamacare, the IRS ain't here to play

Death Panels are only rumors you know
Spread by that broad up Alaska way
Obamacare is settled law my friend
Let's hope the pains go away

He's good. Smart, witty, does most of his own writing, though he does have writers and researchers. He does tend to favor the liberal side of the spectrum, but no, he will ht anyone that is a good target. He is a comedian. An entertainer. He, himself, claims nothing more but he is proud of what he does. Rightly, in my book.

 The problem with Stewart is a high number of young people think of him as a funny Tom Brokaw rather than a comedian and think the "news" from his is the real thing. 10631

Have you heard Stewart about Obamacare??  He's saying right out loud that he WANTS it to work, that he's trying to HELP Obama by supporting it, but that it's so lousy he can't.

He's not just tilting left, EC.  He's hardcore, single-payer.

He just sticks in a few schticks about Democrats to make the stupid children who watch him keep thinking he's a legitimate newsman.

You're right that he's a comedian, but the lie is that he has a following that depends on him for accurate information.

And they don't get it from him any more than they get it from Chris Mathews.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

This is EXACTLY right.

His ignorant following think he's legit, and they swallow his line because he's funny.

In his so-called "interview" with Kathleen Sibelius, he called conservatives "crazies."

He's hard-core, and covering it with comedy and an occasional jab to his leaders.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

True, My Lady. Yet he, himself claims to be no more than an entertainer. I judge him more on the quality of his writing and comedy - I started out my writing career in comedy, so that is important to me. I can separate the man from the message.

He's good. Unlike Tingles, who is so sadly pathetic that watching his program is probably one of the 9 rings of Hell.

I'll grant that he's funny.

But I don't see him doing anything to make sure his young devotees realize that he's just a comedian.  NOT a news reporter.

And in that, there is dishonesty.
