I Hate To Link a Liberal Blog, But...

Over at The Raw Story, they've posted video of a clip from the most recent The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, regarding his commentary of the "all-niter" the Senate Democrats pulled recently. I can't find it on Youtube or I'd embed it here and save you dear readers the trouble of clicking over to another blog. But go there and watch the whole thing -- it's worth it (plus you'll chew up a lib's bandwidth -- also a good cause). It's about 6.5 minutes long, but worth it -- high-larious. And remarkably scathing to Democrats, coming from Jon Stewart, who I normally can't stand to watch. Keep your eyes peeled for the Iwo Jima statue photoshop job. Money quote from "reporter" Aasif Mandvi: "Last night, the brave men and women -- well, mostly men -- of the Talkin' 110th stood up and said 'We are mad as hell, and we are not going to sleep as much as we would normally sleep tonight.'"

Like I said, Jon Stewart irritates me to no end, but he IS a funny guy. Our side needs one of those. Sorry, Dennis Miller, please take a step back.

It's nice that Stewart puts together some damning satire aimed at the Dem controlled Congress now and then. Funny stuff. Makes him seem even handed. And it's nothing we conservatives have in our arsenal.

I recently read somewhere that Jon Stewart's real test of character (and staying power) would be when/if a Dem becomes president along with a Dem-controlled Congress. If he's still consistently funny AND vicious to them, just because they're the ones in power, then he's at least intellectually honest.

And it'll be a test of his audience's collective character if they still laugh.

My guess: Jon Stewart will pass that test, and his audience will declare him a "sellout" and stop watching.
