Jon Stewart Hammers Conservatives For Hypocritical Obama-Bush Comparisons

HP~When Jon Stewart’s on his game, it’s a thing of beauty. And considering he’s always on his game, last night’s opening segment was flat-out gorgeous, as he ripped hypocritical conservatives for constantly comparing Obama to Bush – but only terms of missteps.

The bit began by acknowledging the criticism the Elena Kagan selection, a move conservatives compared to Bush’s failed nominee, Harriet Miers. It wouldn’t be a big deal on its own, but as Stewart pointed out, it’s just one of many times pundits have been quick to compare anything Obama does to a Bush failure. Whether it’s his Katrina or Afghanistan, “it’s like no matter what happens during the Obama administration, there’s the perfect Bush f–k up for the occasion.”

Jon Stewart Slams Wall Street For Stock Market Crash

Jon Stewart took on the dramatic dropping of the Dow last night, mocking Wall Street for not only letting this happen, but skirting responsibility, blaming the plunge on a “perfect storm” of circumstances.

And as Stewart found, this is not the first time the “perfect storm” excuse has been used over the years, prompting him to lay into Wall Street for the ineptitude:

Posted by: BuellBoy

TPM~Jon Stewart was upset last night when he heard that John McCain is opposed to reading Miranda rights to the man who allegedly attempted to bomb Times Square.

He choked up a little bit as he addressed McCain: “This next clip’s gonna hurt me as much as it’s gonna hurt you,” before showing Glenn Beck saying he supports reading the man his Miranda rights.

Al Franken To Hold Fundraiser Featuring Fellow Saturday Night Live Veterans

Posted by: Audiegrl


Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) is set to reunite with some fellow Saturday Night Live veterans at a Democratic fundraiser this weekend in Los Angeles.

The event, taking place at the renowned House of Blues, will be hosted by Dan Aykroyd and his wife Donna, who are expected to be joined by former SNL regulars Dana Carvey and Kevin Nealon, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Proceeds from the first reception — which will cost between $2,400 and $4,800 a person — will go to “Franken MVPs,” a new PAC that splits donations between Franken’s personal 2014 Senate reelection campaign and other leadership PACs, the Tribune reports.

A less expensive event is also scheduled to take place later in the night, featuring the same notable guests from the entertainment and political world.

Sen. Franken also pulled some strings with his SNL connections last month, when he borrowed “Weekend Update” host Seth Meyers for a Minneapolis fundraiser.
