    I didn't say he was. In fact I DID say he was a lefty.

    Yeah, he's a lefty, no equality there. But he's got the other guy, Sean Hannity, no equality, for balance.

    Sean Hannity is not a satirist....He's a political pundit...Like Lawrence O'donnell
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Satire seems to fall short on the right. They tried. It was a miserable failure.



    It's soooo bad. Pushed out by Fox news to try for parity. There just is none.

    The right simply has a higher standard for satire, whereas to the left, everything is satire.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Oh, make no mistake about the set and audience. Stewarts not just trying to be funny.

    No he's not, until he's called out about his bias, omissions, and lies-and then he's somehow just a comedian.

    He can't lie either outright or by omission --- he's a satirist don't you see? It's all just jokes.....

    Obama refuses to acknowledge
    What exactly is the benefit of conflating the terrorists with Islam? Do you believe that they would suddenly give up? "The President of the United States has just called ISIS Islamic Terrorists; ISIS surrenders at the efficacy of the verbal barrage"

    ISIS is trying to ignite a religious war. They WANT us to call them Islamists. Calling them Islamists gives them propaganda; they can say that we're in a war against Islam. That's the point of their barbarity. Terrorism isn't about traditional military goals. It's not about holding territory, it's about hearts and minds. Why would you want us to give them what they want?

    No, I wouldn't say that, he's not just a comedian. But yes, like Obama and Bush, he's going to have his bias, and his omissions, and his lies.
