I am STUNNED that the Catholic League wasn't already boycotting TDS.

I mean, it's not like they've shied away from attacking Bill Donahue.

We need more conversations like that. Why aren't there more people with the balls to have an actual dialogue?

I've been growing tired of Stewart's style.

He's no where near sufficiently self-critical. I don't have a problem with the fact that he's on one side of any given issue, but he almost ubiquitously fails at disconnecting (progressive govt program) != (desired outcome)

Huckabee is one disingenuous fuck. Those decades of being a southern baptist preacher just add to his sliminess. He can seem nice as hell, then go off the deep end at the drop of a hat, all while grinning right in your face.

To his (only) credit, Huckabee remained calm and even tempered through it all.

John Stewart is just a product. all credibility, humor, everything else is done by an army of writers. if you are butthurt about something, you should be looking at who the senior writers are and what their agenda is. clearly, it's to make money just like rush limbaugh. Fuck these clowns and Fuck You.

go take a history class, motherfucker.

I actually felt like Stewart let Huckabee get away with way too much there. Without going back over it, off the top of my head:

* The whole hell / fire / judgment thing - he let Huckabee basically say the ad wasn't about going to hell, it was about your actions being judged or put to the fire or something. Had he simply followed his point up with, "What are they being judged for?" I think his point could have been driven hime a bit better. I guess Huckabee would just keep talking around in a circle though, which is what he was doing the whole time. Maybe a simple analogy would have been good, like, "Your argument is like saying the song 'Santa Clause is Coming to Town' is about Santa's naughty or nice list, but not about getting good or bad presents"

* He didn't completely let him get away with saying being for traditional marriage is different than being against gay marriage, but he didn't point out how dumb that argument is enough...at least not to my liking...

I actually think Stewart was a bit wrong in his interpretation of the ad

granted I know absolutely nothing about the bible, but I did buy Huckabee's explanation

I also know nothing of the passage he was talking about. But to me it sounded like his explanation was that in that passage it says people's actions will be put to some sort of test of fire or something. So then my next question is, what is this test for?

How did you interpret his explanation?

That would work better for him I guess...I guess the actual answer is in what that passage in Corinthians actually says...unfortunately I can't watch the video right now to look it up

I think it was 1st Corinthians 3:13: each one’s work will become manifest, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed by fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each one has done

and I do think that Stewart was wrong, and that was not supposed to be hell, because the people looked like puritan blacksmiths.... but the commercial was still infuriating to me, bascially saying in order to be a christian, the only issues you should be concerned about is voting against abortion and gay marriage, and nothing else matters.

that's exactly how I feel and I wish that was the angle that Stewart took

which he kind of did towards the end with the "isn't it the height of man's arrogance to assume that Jesus would vote along with a certain party?" (paraphrasing, of course)

Well either way, my original point remains...I didn't feel like Stewart did nearly as good a job as he has with other politicians in the past, especially considering how easy this one should have been

This was the day after the election. There is so much truth in this 1/2 hr. that it boggles the mind. No wonder Jon Stewart is the most trusted man in news (which would be sad if I didn't like him so much) ... One of the best parts is when Nate Silver comes on, especially since the best Dean Chambers (unskewed polls) could do to argue against his numbers was to say "He looks kind of gay." Who's gay now? ... It's just one lesson layered upon another:

At this point in my life, my attempts to understand conservative ideology are seriously hampering my ability to get things done. I spend hours everyday just trying to comprehend how they interpret reality.

They interpret it in nano-scale packets, respond with a slogan, then move on to the next packet. Never more than one packet at the same time. This is how they can, for instance, go from "There is no warming!" to "It's the sun!" in a matter of minutes. They have the intellectual attention span of a housecat.

It can't be that simple though. I know of lots of intelligent people who are conservative. There is something fundamentally different with the way they experience their world.

I just watched the last TDS, and one part stuck out at me. He played video of a conservative saying that the term "assault weapons" is a bad term because it could describe hammers. Then Stewart called the guy as dumb as a hammer. It's just saddening because it was a completely valid point.

Not once in the segment was he actually clear about what kind of weapons we should talk about banning. He mentions that we can't own tanks. That's just obtuse and unhelpful, since it's not even trying to talk about where to draw the line. He shames the other side of the political spectrum so much, but he's not doing any better.

I actually kind of wish that we had a party that was opposed to the progressives that was anywhere near responsible enough for me to identify with. It's kind of funny, since I'm actually for wealth redistribution, but I'm for calling it that. I believe that if we have redistributive policies that are called by what they really are, they won't get out of control. I also believe that we shouldn't tell people what to do, even if we think it's in their best interest. That's probably my biggest rift with the left.

Quote :
"Are you equally critical of right wingers who refuse to acknowledge market failures?"


Absolutely yes (or at least I would hope), although you probably won't like my way of doing it. What is a "market"? There are certainly bad market that we create. I think your question should have said "free market", as that's the goal of the libertarians/right. Once we've established that, then we're quibbling over application of the definition.

The free market failed? Maybe I don't think it was a free market. Believing in the free market isn't about believing in the inherent fairness and efficacy of any particular market, it's the belief that there is a set of rules and conditions that leads to the greatest welfare for all by distributed management. That's a moving goalpost, and I recognize that. The only thing the position is clearly against is command & control strategies, ergo, the idea of making government as small as needed.

He was simply pointing out that they are completely unwilling to talk about banning anything at all. Isn't clearing that off the table the first step? Why should anyone go through the process of saying what types they would like to ban if the other party is unwilling to ban anything? It's pointless.
