Daily Show on the Afghanistan leaks

Jon Stewart turns his eye to Wikileaks, BradAss87, Lady Gaga, and media apathy towards what should be a much bigger story.



In case you were worrying whether even something as damaging and enlightening as the document leak could spur our media into functioning again and maybe covering this war on terror thing, it hasn't. If you thought this might spur our elected betters into acting as if war was to be anything other than a outward projection of macho manliness and something that can never end, it didn't. The House approved and extra $59 billion to fund the wars yesterday.

Nothing changed? We learned nothing? Nicely done, America. At least we got a couple of good jokes out of it.

The Lupus of News

Stew Beef was in rare form last night with his response to Bernie Goldberg's recent attack on The Daily Show and its audience. Stewart returned serve by blithely beating Goldberg and his network of choice about the head and face, calling Fox a "terrible, cynical, disingenuous news organization" and the "Lupus of news."

Oh, and there was a gospel choir belting out a refrain of "Go fuck yourself." If church were more like this, I would probably check in every now and then.

Muslimification

The Daily Show on how the Obama Administration may or may not be sending coded message to its Muslim brethren through summit logo designs and how Fox News is either SS or kamikaze sympathizers. Also, as a bonus: John Oliver converts weights from metric to Americanese.



That's convincing and all, but we've already seen how Obama morphed a missile defense logo into a combo Muslim crescent/Obama campaign logo signaling that this country would soon be under Shariah Law, what's to stop us from baselessly thinking this is all also Muslim conspiracy related? I mean, have you seen this?


What about this?

Do I need to put you in a burka and then honor kill you or are you starting to get it yet? OBAMA IS SENDING MESSAGES OF IMMINENT ISLAMIC OVERTHROW THROUGH THE LOGO DESIGNS OF MINOR GOVERNMENT AGENCIES AND SUMMIT MEETINGS! It's so obvious!

Look, when we're all praying five times a day towards Mecca and flying our own planes into our own buildings to teach us a lesson, don't say I didn't give you clear warnings that it was going to happen. It was in the logos!

Required viewing

As we sometime amateurishly attempt satire here on this blog it is also our duty to point out when the masters do it so effectively. Such was the case last night when Jon Stewart turned the Daily Show into a 15 minute parody of Glenn Beck, his paranoia, and the cancer of the liberalism that Jon finds himself afflicted with.

Festval of Whites

The Daily Show looks at the recently completed national convention of pissed off old white males that is otherwise known as CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Video of the day

In a Daily Show piece on the decision to roll back Don't Ask Don't Tell, John Oliver offers up his own suggestions for who should and should not be allowed to serve.

We'll just have to agree to disagree

Jon Stewart's assessment of the departure of Lou Dobbs doesn't really jive with what TheseBastards uncovered yesterday. He totally ignored the bloody shovel and everything. Fucking liberal media...



But it bears repeating; Fare thee well, fat man.

Afternoon video


The Daily Show shows us that while our news media just doesn't have the time in a 24 hour news cycle to fact check leaders, know anything of substance, invite worthwhile guests on to inform the public, or really justify their constant droning stream of "information", they do have time for one thing: fact checking moderately funny sketches from SNL.

It's such a shame that the wrong part of our news media is dying. Craigslist, why couldn't you have smote 24 hour news?

Cheap Blogging Crutch 08.13

'Walking Dead' strolls to AMC
Robert Kirkman's zombie comic The Walking Dead. Weekly series on AMC, network of Mad Men and Breaking Bad. Written and directed by Frank Darabont. Woo, and might I add, hoo. You're all lucky Blogspot can't audibly transmit the sound of a boner happening, otherwise you'd be hearing it now.

'SPIDER-MAN' A NO-SHOW
Sadly this nation's greatest chance to pay for the privilege of gawking at an absolute trainwreck, a $45 million Spider-Man musical written by U2, has fallen by the wayside as show runners realized the stupidity of their idea and the fact that this show would in no way be profitable. I will say this doesn't bode well for the $50 million dollar musical Sean and I wrote about the Thundercats.

Jim Cramer's Housing Bottom Call Revisited (VIDEO)
Miss that happy feeling you used to get when you got to see Jim Cramer on the TV getting his testicles stolen by John Stewart or generally just apologizing for being an awful financial guru? Don't worry, he's still out there making terrible predictions about the housing market. Go point and laugh, my children.

Death Panels
Joe Klein of Time Magazine takes on the asinine "death panel" nonsense the debate on health care has turned into. He does it by explaining what the provision that Sarah Palin and her inbred ilk are distorting actually says and by providing a personal example of the usefulness of such a program. It of course won't get covered as much as Senator Grassley smearing himself in his own excrement and yelling about how a man from the government buried his grandmother alive to save a nickel for his socialist masters.

Fox News gets okay to misinform public, court ruling
We all knew deep down in our hearts that this was true, but it's nice to finally have the courts officially rule on it. It is in fact perfectly legal to lie and use your airwaves as a promotional vehicle for those lies even as you are touting yourself as a news program or news network. Whew! Fox dodged a bullet there. Can you imagine what that place would be like if Hannity or Beck had to tell the truth? Ah well, consider this a favor from the courts to the Especially Gruesome Suicide Clean-up Division of the NYPD.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Jim Cramer still hasn't gotten over his public castration at the hands of Jon Stewart. He's not taking it well. But he's moved from just talking tough when Stewart's not there to concocting fantasy scenarios where an enlightened Jon Stewart, having learned of Cramer's birth on Krypton and his mission to save the Earth, publicly fellates Jimmy and they totally become best friends forever!
No one wants to suffer a beat-down. No one wants to be humiliated or embarrassed. I was shocked at [host Jon Stewart's] behavior. I wish he knew about my background, and I wish he knew about a lot of things that I had done, because I think he would've thanked me instead of attacked me...I think the attack on CNBC and the attacks on me were gravely misplaced. It was rather remarkable in that it was so clear that his goal was to just destroy me. One day he'll answer for it.
What's Stewart going to answer for? Waving the depth and breadth of your ignorance in front of a large audience, showing your gung ho cheerleading of companies that would fail a month later, showing your poor financial advice, your toadying to CEO's, your complete inability to perceive even the slightest inkling of problems on Wall Street, or pointing all of that out while you sat there unable to defend yourself against mountains of evidence? Yes, Stewart will someday answer for his competent interviewing.

Jimmy, word of advice, stop reminding people of how badly you got shamed and how poorly you're taking it. Take solace in the fact a single interview was the sole "answering for it" that you had to do after years of bad financial advice. If most people were as bad at their job as you are, they'd be fired.

Tyranny on our shores

So, we're about a week out from Hannity, Beck, and Bachmann hooting like howler monkeys, jumping up and down, and throwing their feces at pictures of Obama and Stalin....right? Or is that already happening? If this is their state of mind less than three months in, what's year 4 going to look like? Pace yourselves.

Let it go, James

Anyone else notice how much better Jim Cramer is at responding to Jon Stewart's criticism when Jon Stewart isn't in the room? Here's The Jimmy on today's Morning Joe, telling his buddy Scarborough how badly he totally whooped that misguided satirist's ass and shit.

Broken In Brief: Search continues for Jim Cramer's testicles

NEW YORK--Less than a week after being reduced to a transparently inept, sniveling apologist by a man whose film credits include the Enhancement Smoker in "Half Baked", bestselling author and host of CNBC's "Mad Money," Jim Cramer, is still frantically searching for his testicles.

Police seem to think that Cramer was separated from his manhood at approximately 5:15 pm on Thursday, March 12, during the taping of an extended segment in which "The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart excoriated Cramer and his network for, among other things, failing to see the economic collapse on the horizon, acting as the public relations arm of the financial industry, and generally being wrong most of the time.

"The odd thing about the patient is that there is absolutely no evidence of physical trauma," noted Dr. Raymond Friedberg, a trauma surgeon at New York Presbyterian Hospital. "Beyond elevated blood and increased colon elasticity common amongst professional liars who are embarrassed on national television, Mr. Cramer is a picture of health."

In a press conference held earlier today, Jeff Zucker, the Chief Executive of NBC Universal, reassured Cramer's six remaining fans. "The search continues for Mr. Cramer's baby batter sacs. We at NBC are committed to the health and well-being of our employees and we will not rest until Mr. Cramer's berries are back beneath the twig where they belong."

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a source close to the investigation revealed that NBC Universal is urging police to obtain a search warrant for Mr. Stewart's New York City apartment, where Cramer's testicles are believed to be displayed in an ornate glass jar atop the fireplace mantle, next to those of Tucker Carlson and Rick Santelli.

The horror.....

Because no one else seems to have commented on it (sarcasm) I decided to post up the Jim Cramer/Jon Stewart interview from last night. I like it not for the sheer level of discomfort/glee it fills you with to see Stewart gut this man in front of a live studio audience, or the seeming stupidity of a man going on a show to ostensibly defend his honor despite the hours of videotape and the economic situation graphically exposing his ignorance and then backing down into a timid yes man as the sheer weight of his stupidity is slammed into his skull minute after minute, nor is it the shiv it sticks in the side of the bank humping financial press who regurgitate corporate press releases while sneering at anyone who makes less than $250,000, that Cramer dropped all his press appearances after the interview and CNBC has been begging MSNBC not to show clips from it, or the skill with which a comedian once again performs the role our media won't, it's because of today's press conference with Robert Gibbs and the sheer glee he took in the interview.



Yes, he is hiding a boner behind that podium. Gibbs has been waging his own mini-war with CNBC and Rick "Will no one think of the poor hedge fund managers" Santelli and must have really appreciated seeing one of their network toads get squashed on the TV, or really, just seeing anyone having to take questions from someone who won't accept pat platitudes about the failure that will consume his bosses' first term.

I'd be careful to note this interview, for it will be the last time anyone tangentially connected to the crisis will be deign to be quizzed by anyone competent enough to make them look bad. No more comedians, we'll have to rely on the...*shudder*...real media now.

Full verbal castration below...
