Jon Stewart and analogies

by Smitty (h/t No Quarter)

Jon Stewart (suddenly I feel even stupider for botching the spelling of Monique Stuart's name) is a useful idiot par excellence.
One is nearly capable of admiring such a Soldier of Stupidity. He has demonized Bush and Cheney with the best of them. He has worshipped at the altar of Hopium and Changeeba like a champ. But he has the special, difficult task of making Pavarotti sound like P-Diddy to the young, thoughtless nitwit demographic.
If the task wasn't so antithetical to the Constitution as understood by any sober reader, stuff like this would possibly be funny:

The only reason Nixon picked Spiro Agnew is that his name is an anagram for "grow a penis".
Without that guy being a very funny distraction, Nixon has no time to do Watergate.
So, the SAT question/answer might read: Nixon and Agnew are to Watergate as Obama and Biden are to IG-gate?


  1. The point, as I see it, is that he's getting it across to his audience that transparency is the last thing they should expect from the Big O administration.

  2. Once I grew a brain cell I stopped watching.

    So it seems it's now ok to criticize the Obama administration for "protecting" the supposedly evil Bush administration. It's a step in the right direction, but not much of one.
