This time John is wrong.
Usually I enjoy his comments, but now I guess he thinks he has to defend the Jews. I’m not sure why. It is Israel that seems to be the biggest threat in the Middle East. They are always threatening Iran, torturing Palestinians and bombing Lebonese. How much longer are we going to let Israel pull us into these expensive and deadly wars?

Stewart is a regurgitator of the corporate media he pretends to make fun of. Why does Truthdig continue to post this trite excuse for satire?

Who gives a damn what Jon Stewart ever says? I don’t.
When Ahmadinejad and Khameini are swinging upside-down from a power line like Mussolini (I give it 5 years - and can’t come soon enough), nobody will ever know or care what Jon Stewart said.

Biden’s right to express his doubts mildly. He’s aware that anything we try to affect the electoral outcome will play into the hands of Ahmedinejad.

I think you got it PSmith.  The whole disinfomration charade was about oil, not primaily about Zionism.  The Zionist media was just used as a replay of the Shah ‘revolution’, to stigmatize an electoral landslide as a ‘stolen’ election.  The chief backer of the ‘reform’ candidate was the billionaire Rafsanjani family, known crooks to the Iranian people.  they didn’t like Ahmedinejad oil money to the Iranian people and the US sanctions.

I guess the Zionists Jews like Jon “Stewart” can’t get over Ahmadinejad’s victory in Iran. The problem with all the US/UK disinformacion campaign is that the world has seen this charade too many times.

First American media has zero credibility, how can we forget the WMD nonsense, yet they keep on lying to us. The newspapers in Asia, Africa and Latin America are reporting how the US/UK spend $400 million dollars to assure that Ahmadinejad did NOT get re-elected. Shame on us !
