Jon Stewart, GOP and 9/11 Part 2

Last week I linked you to this brilliant beat down of the GOP conducted by Jon Stewart. He followed that up with a brilliant show last Thursday bringing 9/11 First Responders on the show to respond to the GOP filibuster.

Take a look at the videos below.

Mike Huckabee was also on the show and he was completely clueless on the topic. He tried to pin this on the Democrats but luckily Jon Stewart was on top of things.

Jon Stewart, GOP and 9/11

If for some reason you missed The Daily Show last night you must take a moment to watch this clip.  Jon Stewart took GOP to task for their exploitation of 9/11.

John McCain vs John McCain

Remember way back in 2000 when John McCain was actually a respected war veteran and senator? Remember the “Straight Talk Express”? Remember the support he had from the left? Do you remember the McCain as Kerry’s Vice President talk?

A lot has changed in the past 10 years, and yes, that does include John McCain’s stance on post policy issues. I have said in the past that there is absolutely nothing wrong with a politician changing his position on a given subject as more information becomes available. I think there are a lot of American politicians who could sure use the trait. I thought that in 2004 and I still believe that today. What does bother me though is when a politician changes their position on EVERYTHING. John McCain has become that politician. What makes his actions even worse is that he has done it repeatedly for personal benefit. We all know he was treated horribly in the 2000 GOP Presidential primaries but just 8 years later he went to embrace the same people in the hopes of becoming President.

I saw two great clips related to McCain this week so I will share it with you.

The first one is from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Monday.

This second one is from this past Monday on The Rachel Maddow Show.

Rachel Maddow’s blog also points out a similar report Keith Olbermann did during the 2008 election cycle.

Rachel Maddow interviews Jon Stewart

Rachel Maddow and MSNBC have been hyping up this interview all week. It is finally here.  Earlier today the blog mentioned that Jon Stewart had asked them to upload the entire interview online unedited. Rachel Maddow did of course agree to do that. The full interview is embedded below. I’ll have more thoughts on it once I watch the full version.


Rachel Maddow also appeared on “Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” to discuss the interview.

If you haven’t seen Rachel Maddow’s two appearances on The Daily Show here they are.

Jon Stewart wants to talk to George W. Bush

Last night I posted a video a video of Rachel Maddow making her case for a chance to interview George W. Bush about his new book “Decision Points.”

She’s not the only one who want to talk to Dubya though. Jon Stewart has also made his case for a chance to interview Bush 43.

George W. Bush Book Tour

You may have heard that Dubya has a book out. He’s been all over the place (actually just places where he was likely to receive softball questions) promoting it.

Did anyone else catch George W. Bush’s interview with Matt Lauer? He looked really uncomfortable sitting there and sounded just as clueless as ever. Most of his answers showed just how out of touch with reality he actually was and continues to be.

It’s a shame he will never answer REAL questions about his “Decision Points“. Rachel Maddow summed it up perfectly on her show tonight.

George W. Bush in his own recent history, in just the last few years, has admitted that weapons of mass destruction were not why we went to Iraq. Except in his new book, he regresses — despite admitting it over and over and over again before, despite changing his rationales for war to account for the fact that he couldn’t talk about weapons anymore. Now we’re back to weapons again, Now we’re back to pre-Iraq war Bush again saying that “removing Saddam from power was the right decision….[F]or all the difficulties that followed, America is safer without a homicidal dictator pursuing WMD.”

Saddam wasn’t pursuing WMD. We know it. George Bush admitted it before — but he’s back to making that case again, in the book now. That’s in the book that came out today. That’s why Bush feels good about the invasion despite every thing else that happened.

I know he’s the past President. I know this is a book tour. I know that I’m never going to get to ask him this directly. And I know that we’re a different country now.

But — we’re a different county now.

Are we supposed to fall for this again?

P.S: I’m fired up for Thursday night when Rachel Maddow interviews Jon Stewart.

Blog Update

As you probably have noticed I have been AWOL lately. I am in the process of moving and getting renovations done on a house has kept me away from blogging. I’ll be back with regular updates in a couple of weeks but in the meantime follow my twitter feed. I am still regularly posting there.

If you follow me on twitter, you probably saw me mention that I was quoted in a recent CNN article. You can find that article and the other instances where I have been quoted or appeared on a mainstream media outlet here.

What do you guys think of the new toolbar that appears at the bottom? How does it look? Does it interfere with the blog? Give me some feedback on it. Should I keep it or get rid of it?

Did anyone pick up a copy of  “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Presents Earth (The Book): A Visitor’s Guide to the Human Race?” I’ll withhold judgment on it until I read more of it but topping their first book will be tough.

Daily Show 2/10/10

If you missed the Daily Show last night it was definitely one of the better ones in recent memory. Make sure you check it out.

It was great to see Jon Stewart thank the people who actually stood in line for the tapings. I’ve stood out there in the past and I can’t imagine the conditions were much fun as New York got hit with some serious snow.

They started the show by mocking crazy conservatives who deny Global Warming with a segment called “Unusually Large Snowstorm”. That sidewalk you see to the left of Asif Mandvi there is where the audience stands for hours while waiting to get into a Daily Show taping.
