    If you're close to DC, then half your college is going to be there anyway, why not?

    Boston is a pretty good distance from DC. And the road trip sucks. I did it when BU played for the National Championship for Hockey in DC.

    Somehow I doubt they are going to draw much of a crowd and you can count on anyone who would actually has got to have a screw loose, both of these guys are stone idiots.

    I think his point was more about rhetoric than policy positions. "Fringe" is often an arbitrary definition for many with short memories with no idea where to consider "moderate", or relatively strong positions versus those absolutists.

    I wish pundits would stop using the national hall for their media hype stupidity. I think of all the civil rights movements and real protests that have taken place there and it's just dishonouring them all. I get what Stewart is doing but it's so tit for tat that I can't take it seriously.

    You aren't exactly supposed to take it seriously, which is odd. We are supposed to elevate our political discussions beyond childish rhetoric and oversimplification, but that message is being delivered by those who use childish rhetoric and oversimplification to make people laugh at the same time they do not want us to take them seriously because it ruins their message.

    I'll take them much more seriously than Beck and Palin. Stewart and Colbert actually speak with rational ideas. Hell, Beck and Palin are more entertainment than Stewart and Colbert! They arent people to be taken seriously unless youre a lazy arm chair politician that doesnt think for yourlself politically.
