‘Daily Show’: The Governor’s New Clothes

Posted on Oct 23, 2008
Project Beltway

Jon Stewart found plenty of, er, material for Wednesday night’s “Daily Show” episode as the Sarah Palin Wardrobegate scandal, um, unfolded. (Sorry.) It’s one of Stewart’s best riffs of late, and he clearly enjoyed the moment, if his singing outbursts were any indication.

I have been thinking about the things my self and 6 of my friends could/would do if we had that $$$$ and split it between us….149,000.00 divided by 7=21285.71 for each of us…..I could sure pay a few bills with $21,285.00….Maybe get my car repaired…How about you????What could/would YOU DO…?

Don Holliday…I taste some sour grapes here. And the “Oh yeah? Well, my daddy can beat up your daddy” analogy is a typical right-wing response. When you can’t respond with constructive criticism, better ideas or proven knowledge, you roll up your sleeves.

Bottom Line: You don’t like Stewart’s humor because it pokes fun at your candidate.

This little dork Stewart ceased to be amusing long ago. He is just a crude bore who couldn’t recite the alphabet without a team of scriptwriters. I can imagine him yapping at Sarah in front of her husband. Yeah, right.

Never mind that the policies of the Neo-Conservative Republicans and the Far Right Wing Christian Lunatic Fringe have caused many average working middle class families to lose their homes and livelihoods, we’ll just spend enough to house 4 families and give money to the local food bank.
Those same Christians who are enjoined to feed the hungry and clothe the naked and house the homeless. Who would sooner spit on someone who has less than them and leave the work of doing these things to the government.
Nahh, you can’t see that I have experienced the same feelings and emotions when, deserted by the very people who were thought to be my friends, won’t even talk to me these days.
Yet, Christians they are and proclaim they are doing the work of the Lord. All this by electing a man, who does not have the brains of a slug, and for V.P. a woman, who cannot even name a magazine, let alone any decision other than Roe v. Wade that she disagrees with from the Supreme Court.
We are supposed to believe that these people who have their collective heads and asses in the sand are going to fix the economy, bring America back to the world stage as a friendly nation that is looked up to, and cure the health care problem by giving every American 5000 US dollars to put into a savings account for medical purposes.
You, bethca! We’re just gonna’ do that and also save the world from the evils of liberalism!
By golly, we have all the answers and we’re gonna’ be the saviours of the world!

Stewart is as always, hilarious as hell. McCain/Palin are true to form and hypocrisy and slime are their stock in trade. Not to mention the chic and trendy haute couture. Yeah, Joe Sixpack must be green with envy.
