Stephen Colbert on the 'Growing Cable News Consensus' That Bowe Bergdahl Doesn't Deserve to Be Alive
Traitor, loser, deserter. While Fox News can't seem to find enough insults to describe Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, CNN is busy wondering whether the prisoner of war modeled his life after the fictional TV series "Homeland."
"The Daily Show" host pokes holes in all the ridiculous Fox News arguments about prisoner of war Bowe Bergdahl and his father Bob being Muslim terrorists and points out that facial hair is not evidence that someone is a terrorist. Case in point: the beardless Las Vegas shooting suspects.
It's hard not to be cynical after the display of rancid partisanship that greeted the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl after five years as a Taliban-held prisoner of war. The Greatest Generation would not have acted this way.
Sen. John McCain on Sunday maintained that President Obama, in releasing the five officials who had served in the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan in the 1990s and until 2001, had released people who were “hard core al-Qaida who were responsible for 9/11.”
Thanks to deep-sea fish, the ocean absorbs about half of the carbon humans produce; Las Vegas' main water supply is a lake that just hit record-low levels; meanwhile, Bowe Bergdahl would not be alone in the "honorable history of war deserters." These discoveries and more after the jump.
If today's Republican Party had been around during the Civil War, it would have tried to stop its own president, a fellow named Lincoln, from appointing Gen. Ulysses S. Grant commander of the Union Army because he drank on duty.
What the Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl saga demonstrates beyond question -- to anyone who still nurtured any doubt -- is that the Republican right will junk just about any basic American value to satisfy its hatred of President Barack Obama.
