Okay, grow up. Obamadrat is an ass. Thank God for the two term rule. I should be surprised that our citizens voted for his sorry ass twice, but, hey, we voted for Bush Jr. twice.
Andrew - I was bored, and just messing with ya, but seriously...a little friendly advice. You are taking things too seriously. Don't nitpick the little details.
It doesn`t matter that he compared Stewart to The Onion instead of Limbaugh? His point was clear...It`s not REAL journalism.
You have a way of talking down to people. Educating is not the same as telling someone they are stupid and wrong, although not as fun sometimes. Responding with "I am educated to the masters level..." is a perfect example.
I know you are probably pissed off at me by now. I guess I`m nitpicking too.
We do need more smart, educated people commenting here, like you. Just don`t take things so seriously.

Really? Knoxville is still reeling from the loss of a civil war? That ended about 150 years ago. You think they'd be over it by now.
People are still vastly ignorant of the ACA. It is not improving health care, nor has it made it more affordable (in fact, it`s increased the costs). All the ACA has done is make coverage mandatory and subsidized premiums for the poorest. Still, with ridiculous deductibles and limited coverage, even those receiving subsidies will still be screwed.
All the ACA has accomplished is creating a situation that drives up costs and creates higher unemployment. Not to mention saddling people with new expenses.
Let`s talk about this again in three years, by then, even the densest of people will have seen the consequences (assuming they don`t get duped into thinking the ACA didn`t cause the issues we`ll be facing by then).

Stewart hosts a fake news show, which is not to be confused with a false news show. He deals in facts that happen to be funny because they're true. Limbaugh on the other hand appeals to the worst in human nature, fear, hate, and shock value to drum up an audience, modus operandi "Someone else is saying the terrible terrible things you think."
Holding Jon up to the same standards as Edward R. Murrow is ridiculous because he`s not a journalist. He`s never claimed to be, Murrow had a duty to the public that Stewart just can`t duplicate. And Murrow never had gratuitous dick jokes on his broadcasts either...
Stewart should rightfully be compared to Mark Twain, not Walter Cronkite.
