    No, it is not if the singular reason you made any advancement through life is just the color of your skin.

    Well of course. It's easier to get your information from a comedian where you can reinforce your opinions and guffaw at the same time.

    I don't get my information from Bill Maher. I listen to him every once in a while to laugh at the things I have already been thinking, that is what makes it so funny.

    Reinforce my opinions? Why are you guys always so concerned about people with different opinions being sure about it? Is it projection?

    I believe that those who vote should be well informed or they will elect charlatans like Barrack Obama. Politicians (Biden and Pelosi as well) are clearly dumbing down their rhetoric to appeal to the less informed voter, and its working.

    Oddly, Stewart is more accurate than the majority of political entertainers on either side. He finds the hypocrisy, the silliness, the illogical, and is perfectly accurate in doing so.

    However, the real trouble with inaccuracy isn't comedians, but what some try to pass off as news. Real sources must be accurate. Bias is something that can be handled.
    Accuracy, is obviously subjective to you considering your reliance of Stewart as a source.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    If people that voted were well informed, they wouldn't vote for Dem OR Republican.

    They would certainly expect more from the candidates and less from government. They would discuss the issues rather than the personalities.

    Tell me what I'm not informed about, I'm curious.
