    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.

    nobody on tv politically seems that funny to me. whenever they play a stewert clip on special report i'm disappointed. politics used to be funny on tv snl etc... but now they seem agenda driven. i don't know... i like to laugh without hostility

    He brings things to the attention of the youth in our country politically. He wants the youth politcally engaged. Its a great thing he is around.

    For those too lazy to watch the clip, or too ideological who would rather not feel uncomfortable with someone challenging their worldview, here is an overview

    Republicans on Wisconsin teachers - They are the elites and we should restrict their pay because they make too much money.

    Republicans on the Bush tax cuts - People who make $250,000 don't really make that much money.

    Republicans on restricting teachers' pay - Hell yes! They work for the taxpayers!

    Republicans on restricting multi-million dollar pay of bankers and CEOs whose banks received government money - We shouldn't restrict their pay, even though they work for the taxpayers.
