Little Richard on The Daily Show

Little Richard Translates for Bush on ‘Daily Show’

We’ve had some readers asking for us at Truthdig to dig between the lines of Bush’s 9/11 speech. Turns out Jon Stewart & Co. were already all over that. Watch as Little Richard explicates our prez.

Richard Sexton and Stephen Colbert

Colbert Plays the Name Game in Jersey

Stephen Colbert sat down with Richard Sexton on Tuesday to discuss his congressional candidacy against the confusingly named incumbent, James Saxton.  As can be expected, hijinks ensue, including Colbert’s generous offer to smear Sexton’s opponent for him and a mock concession call not to be missed.

‘Daily Show’: Gary Hart’s Manifesto

Former presidential candidate and national security expert Gary Hart appeared on “The Daily Show” Tuesday to pitch his new book, “The Courage of Our Convictions: A Manifesto for Democrats.”  Evoking giants like Roosevelt and Kennedy, Hart challenged the wisdom of playing it safe and took a stab at the centrism so popular among Democrats in recent years.

Tony Snow

Snow Almost Doesn’t Bother Lying

Asked whether Bush still thinks there was a relationship between Hussein and Al Qaeda honcho Al Zarqawi, White House spokesman Tony Snow nearly admitted the absence of such a relationship, but then said one existed because Zarqawi “operated” in Iraq. But as ThinkProgress points out, that’s like saying America had a “relationship” with the Unabomber because he was ?operating? in the United States.

Jon Stewart

‘Daily Show’ Digests Latest Bush Puzzler

George Bush recently said “America is safer than it has been, but it’s not yet safe.”  Attempting to make sense of this seemingly contradictory statement in a post-9/11, post-“mission accomplished,” post-Katrina world, “The Daily Show” came up with this rationale: “George W. Bush is the right man to lead us in the era post whatever horrible calamity he leads us into next.”

Matt Lauer and President Bush

Lauer Challenges Bush on Torture, CIA Prisons

NBC host Matt Lauer confronts President Bush on a fundamental apparent inconsistency in his interrogation policy: If it’s legal, why are we doing it in secret CIA prisons abroad? Cornered, Bush doesn’t answer straight. Watch the fireworks.

Keith Olbermann

Olbermann to Bush at Ground Zero: ‘May This Country Forgive You’

In perhaps his most powerful monologue ever, MSNBC host Keith Olbermann savagely harangued Bush for using 9/11 as a wedge to pit Americans against Americans. “Who has left this hole in the ground? We have not forgotten, Mr. President. You have. May this country forgive you.”

  • Highlighting this speech and last week’s “Have you no sense of decency?” monologue, The Nation called Olbermann “the best news anchor on television today.”

    Bill Maher Takes On ‘The Path to 9/11’

    Maher, along with guests Rob Thomas, P.J. O’Rourke and Joan Walsh, ripped into ABC’s undocu-drama, which pins the blame for 9/11 on Bill Clinton. Maher reminds us: As president, Clinton had a meeting a week about bin Laden; George W. Bush, before 9/11, had zero. Watch it on the jump.

    How Would ABC Fictionalize Other Historical Periods?

    A satire of ABC’s “The Path to 9/11” has popped up on YouTube. It envisions how ABC would dramatize Vietnam, the San Francisco Earthquake and the Revolutionary War. Not gut-bustingly hilarious, but significant in terms of how quickly these kinds of things appear nowadays. (h/t: AMERICAblog)
