The show last night (3/3) made a political catastrophe sound funny. Screwed Again: Jon Stewart Jon wants to entertain his audience to keep his $6,000,000 rolling in. Who is the butt of Jon's jokes, the politicians and media shills he ridicules; or his audience that refuses to take the jokes seriously? Jon and Stephen Colbert are better than Mark Twain ever was at political satire but Mark Twain's audience was way more savvy than Americans are now. Its not that Americans are stupid now, its that they are in a trance from day and night propaganda. Even if you saw his show last night, watch it again.
