    I would have to say Stewart is a little bit more even handed in his approach.

    LOL... Jon who? The comedian hack-guy barely taller than a stool? LOL.

    Rush has national weight. John is barely a paper weight.

    Rush has weight because he wades through the Lib Media Machine on a daily basis and reveals their general ineptitude/blindness. He has fun, almost no interviews, no writers, no side kicks to chew up time like the barely paper weight Liebowitz.

    i'm not ignorant, nor am i projecting. i would really like to see the definitive demographics of rush's fan base as opposed to stewart's.

    i have no doubt they are quite different.

    I like both Rush and Stewart. John Stewart, I sadly have to say, is probably one of the best political commentators on TV. While he has his tendencies for absurdities, it's not nearly as terrible as pretty much everyone else and rather transparent. He has good political discourse on his show, and it's sad that a comedy show is probably the best on that front. Rush has a great show as well. He too is given to absurdities and takes things to sometimes rather low probability ends. But he still has some good ideas and is usually well read and educated on what he's talking about. Most other forums are trash. Hannity is horrible, I envision Hannity as a slightly more rational form of Truth Detector. Beck is putting on a song and dance, and both suck. Other networks aren't even on the map.

    Pretty much with all "mainstream" media, there's always a slant and propaganda you have to wade through.

    Ive been listening to Dennis Prager alot lately. While I might disagree with him on numerous issues I like his approach.

    nothing new just more liberal attacks...

    They can't argue substance, because they just don't get substance...

    If it doesn't fit into a 8 second sound bite there lost and confused!

    so on it goes.. personal attacks without substance for the politically ignorant and the hopelessly liberal....

    The Anglo-Saxons didn't care for Eastern Slavs either, nor did the California Indians, as their resistance repelled them back up the coast quite quickly.
