Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart rounded up the best of “crazy” CPAC Monday night, which he described as “Burning Man for people who don’t do drugs and are afraid of fire.” He summed up the big, patriotic speeches with some genital-centered jokes, declaring, “Take it out and jerk it for America!”
Stewart mocked Ted Cruz doing a Jay Leno joke, advising the senator, “Listen, Cruz, don’t quit your day job… Let me rephrase that. Quit your day job.” He took on Paul Ryan’s anecdote about “free lunches” with the takeaway: “If you give a man a fish, don’t. Period. End of Bible.”
But Stewart saved the best barbs for NRA official Wayne LaPierre, declaring that people need as many guns as possible to defend themselves from all the evil around them. Stewart bewilderedly asked, “Where the fuck do you live? Vice City?”
The Daily Show host Jon Stewart went to town ripping Fox News apart on its 2012 election coverage especially the “avalanche on bullshit mountain” that happened after President Barack Obama was declared the winner.
Stewart was especially entertained by Republican strategist Karl Rove’s denial that Obama was going to win Ohio, remarking that “Math you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better” could be the new Fox motto
Crow taste so much better when it’s served on a 300 million dollar platter!
Jon Stewart and Bill O’Reilly have announced that they’ll be going head-to-head in an mano-a-Faux news personality debate in “an air conditioned auditorium” in just over two weeks. Which you can watch live-streaming for $4.99.
One-half of the net profits from The Rumble 2012 will be donated by Jon and Bill to a number of charitable causes.
Jon Stewart took on the “glitterati” and the glitterbombings of candidates by gay activists, which he called “more clever than a pie in the face but less clever than something actually clever.”
Lets be honest. It was “cute” and “meaningful” the first few times and kudo’s to Nick Espinosa the activist who started it. BUT, the more its been done, hijacked by others (yes, trans-activist I am talking to you) and overdone it’s gone from symbolic to annoying with candidates laughing it off but at the same time getting serious with the glitter activist like the college student who glittered Mitt Romney facing time in federal prison.
In the 1970’s when Anita Bryant was hit in the face with a pie it was a statement and rarely imitated.
If you REALLY want to make a statement and you are willing to risk jailtime there are many other ways to protest these GOP candidates.
By all means ACT-UP kids. But do it right. Take a page from the past and what REALLY worked. Gather and protest, chant, scream, march, use civil disobedience.
But glitterbombing is just so “stereotypical” and so very Rip Taylor on The Gong Show circa 1977
Jon Stewart of the Daily Show took a long hard look at Anthony Weiner’s wiener and “Weinergate” last night a story that hits close to home to Stewart. So close in fact that Stewart spent weekends when he was younger at Anthony Weiner’s lake house in the mountains and as Jon compared the picture to his memories of swimming experiences with Weiner he concludes that the picture is indeed NOT Weiner’s wiener because as Stewart puts it. “There was a lot more Anthony and alot less weiner.”
Kiera Knightly is making the rounds on the talk show circuit promoting her new movie, “Last Night.”
Well last night Keira landed on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to plug her movie but wound up learning about Rick “Man On Dog” Rick Santorum and his tiny……..internet problem. (Thanks to the AWESOME Dan Savage)
After showing a clip of the last GOP debate, Jon suggested last night on The Daily Show that “you might have to Google” to get a better grip on who the candidates are.
And Keira did just that.
“I just Googled Santorum,” Keira shared with Jon. “I feel like my innocence has been taken away. It was the use of the word frothy.”
