Jon Stewart: Moral Kombat (Updated)

May 15, 2009

I was happy I caught the beginning of “The Daily Show” last night because Jon, as he does better than anyone in media, highlighted the ridiculous juxtaposition of the torture debate/prisoner abuse photo ‘scandal’ with the administration’s lack of action on DADT, specifically in regards to Dan Choi.

The quote Towleroad pulled sums it up: “So it was okay to waterboard a guy over 80 times, but God forbid the guy who could understand what that prick was saying….has a boyfriend.”

Yep, pretty much.

Update 3:44 PM: Apparently taking the lead from the above, a reporter challenged Press Secretary Robert Gibbs today on the logic of not releasing torture photos because they would endanger the troops but allowing the firing of Arabic linguists, like Dan Choi, who would presumably protect the troops.


Cases of gay Arabic linguists being dismissed from Iraq have been around forever but I’m glad the mainstream media is really biting into it this time.

Jim Cramer On “Daily Show” Brawl, Jon Stewart

March 20, 2009

CNBC’s Jim Cramer finally commented on his confrontation with Jon Stewart while speaking with Meredith Viera (am I the only one who loves her?) on the Today show:

I think some of Cramer’s points are fair but I also think he slightly skews  (misses?) the fundamentals of Jon’s argument. I think Tucker Carlson’s criticism of the showdown was probably a better defense of Cramer than what Cramer came up with.
