Glen Beck is the Disease in America

Glen Beck has topped himself. He somehow has managed to equate evolution with progressive politics. His comparison of revolution to evolution is totally insane – but the real fear is the platform given to him by the ‘conservative movement’ in America. These folks think they are carrying out Ronald Reagan’s vision – but Ronald Reagan […]

New Ideas From the GOP?

Here we go.  The GOP has showcased three of their finest minds in an attempt to re-brand the old cow.  Jon Stewart is probably the best at highlighting nonsense – or perhaps he just has a great staff with good video editing capabilities.  Let’s check out the new ideas of the Republican re-branding. Check out […]

The Road to Tyranny – and other ludicrous ideas

The correct place for Shawn Hannity and Michelle Bachman is on Comedy Central. These folks are breaking down with psychotic episodes of paranoia. Fortunately for people like me, Stewart and Colbert help keep this insanity in perspective. We have ranted and blustered at the conservative right wing. Particularly during the election cycle. I am afraid […]

Bernie Madoff, Traitor, Turncoat, Judas, Treason

Is there a greater crime against our country than that which Bernie Madoff is charged?  I don’t think so.  This is not ‘just’ stealing 50 Billion dollars – this is about the harm done to our way of life.  Our way of life is based on capitalism tempered by faith, or consideration for others.  Bernie […]

Media Pendulum Swings Right

The phenomenon of the American Media is in full swing. The mass of opportunity is driven by the gravitational pull of pollsters. With the inertia growing, it seems improbable that we will see any shift to professional journalism in the near future. The throttle is open for the pendulum to swing far right. The value […]

Copycatery – By Steven Colbert

There is no one like Steven Colbert to pound an issue home. The Colbert Report hosted both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama last week. Clinton had inked the deal before Obama – so – imagine this, The Clinton campaign is accusing Obama of being a copycat. We are reaching for new lows in this Presidential […]

Fox News – Bush’s Last Lap

Fox News has become the embarrassment of professional journalism. Ranking beneath bloggers in factual reporting and fair commentary, the only success of Fox has been to lower the bar of media expectations. Fortunately for all Americans, we can depend on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Intelligent reporting that is clearly unbiased may seem boring […]

Diplomatic Gutter Balls

There were two major news developments in the past few days. The President of the United States was in Europe on a diplomatic mission and a Senator from Illinois was bowling in Pennsylvania. Can you guess which received the most media attention? BUCHAREST, Romania — President Bush suffered a painful diplomatic setback Wednesday when NATO […]

Jon Stewart at Oscars, on McCain

Son, Jon Stewart makes perfectly good sense to me. There are times when we need humor to best articulate the feelings and mood behind our thoughts. As Stewart mocks the Iraq War and John McCain’s positions on the war there is some resonance with truth. It is this ability to connect at the gut level […]

Jon Stewart on color in the race, and Karl Rove

Son, Jon Stewart has really got it going. The election process is better for him than it is for us. Stewart has the ability to merge the written word, the spoken word, and video images. He is particularly adept at pointing out the obvious. The Television Networks, including cable, have gone to extremes to showcase […]

Jon Stewart gives pointers to Ron Paul

Son, Ron Paul did the now required appearance on Jon Stewart’s Daily Show. Jon Stewart was not only gracious but offered some sage advice on managing the other candidates during the debates. They had a civil conversation. Mr. Paul presented well – to my surprise. Mr. Paul noted that the other candidates are not very […]

Looking back – Jon Stewart on Monica Lewinski

Son, Jon Stewart has been around for awhile – and while his brand of humor can be antagonistic – he continues to be respected. Virtually no one attacks Jon Stewart. Why is that? Is it because he is fundamentally correct in his reasoning process? Dad

Stewart on Nevada debate – know when to fold.

Son, Jon Stewart is a great political commentator. His use of humor to point out the obvious that seems to escape the rest of us is unparalleled. I think we see these things but it takes a Jon Stewart to articulate for us what is the source of our uneasiness. Dad
