The dueling banjos was particularly apropos. Pretty funny.

That never happened. Jon Stewart is an evil liberal who hates Bush and never makes fun of Democrats.

It was a tie.

Thanks for getting that out of the way.

As a Southern, those WV women are SO embarrassing.

Wait a minute, WV wasn't part of the Confederacy. My bad.

West Virginians love their black people.

That's actually some of the most brilliant stuff I've seen out of the Daily Show in a while.
 
2008-05-16 03:45:03 AM  
That was hilarious! And as for those West Virginians that got interviewed...bless their hearts.

Well, a douche contest can only be hosted by a douche like Stewart

Of course we come in so many flavors. In addition to Irish Asshole, there's Guido, Pollack, Jew-Boy....

I thought Terry McAuliffe got blowed up on the Challenger.

Dumb people shouldn't be allowed to vote...I'm sorry, but it's true.

Instead of an exit poll, there should be an ENTRY poll that asks questions about the candidates. If the voter doesn't know enough about all the candidated, there would be information packets available, and they could study up before taking the entry poll again. Then you wouldn't have inbred rednecks saying stuff like, "well, he's a Muslim, and I don't think that's right."

/wonders what Bill Hicks would be saying.
 
2008-05-16 09:03:33 AM  
Yeah, Stewart is a riot.

But let me be arch.

I would guess that underclass white Christians are not the only ones worried about Obama's sympathies concerning Islam. You did see Bush's speech in the Knesset yesterday, right?

Second, maybe it's worth remembering that West Virgina has the highest population of whites of any state. They also have lowest crime rates of any state.

If everyone else should vote for what appears to be best for them, why not West Virginians?

So all black that vote for Obama, because he is black, are stupid?


RACIST!!!!

Nothing worth stealing, no money to con them out of, and unless you've got some sort of inbred mutant fetish, sex crimes are off the table.

I doubt that WV has the "highest population of whites of any state", seeing as it's had a declining population for the last several decades. Maybe you meant the highest percentage of whites in the population. As far as the crime rate, I'd like to see some figures on that, especially if they were broken down by region (I'm willing to bet that Charleston has a crime rate similar to most moderately-sized cities).
 
2008-05-16 09:41:41 AM  
Phew! At least he didn't interview any of our "back woods" citizens.

/I swear we don't all suck this bad
 
2008-05-16 09:44:53 AM  
Your're right.

I should have said population in terms of percent and 'one of the lowest'. Quick google showed 50th in crime in 98', 47th in 2000 (50th in rates of theft, btw.) Dunno about the newer stuff.
 
2008-05-16 10:01:13 AM  
damn I love John Stewart...

Actually, Vermont has a larger percentage of whites than West Virgina, 95% vs 94%

That was absolutely awesome and frightening. "The Other Race" indeed...
 
2008-05-16 11:52:37 AM  
Actually, the George W Bush thing with the "Golf Wars" made me laugh quite a bit last night. Jon Stewart is a frickin genius (as are his writers)
 
2008-05-16 12:02:50 PM  
I enjoy watching the media talking heads trip all over themselves trying to find new ways to describe White Trash Racists .... errr ... I mean Rural, Hard Working, Blue Collar, Lower Educated, Value Voters. Like we can't read between the euphamisms.

So much fail, so little time to laugh at it.

West Virginia is one of the armpits of the country. Clinton may have it, but she's not exactly proud of it. Why would Obama leave it to her? Because having a black guy campaigning in West Virginia would be like having a white guy campaigning in post-Mugabe Zimbabwe.

You could run a dead white guy against anybody in that state, and they would still vote for the dead white guy because white's better than anything else alive, to them. The state has only 1.8 million people in it, and 94.9% of them are white (according to the census.) Do the math - with only 3.3% of the state listing as black, that's just 60,000 people. In other words, you could fill Mountaineer Stadium with every black person in West Virginia and still have friggin' seats left over.

As for "voting for what appears best for them," this is the same state that celebrates leveling mountains for mining. They must celebrate it, as they continue to let it happen year after year, despite groundwater pollution, loss of arable land, and increasing cancer rates. Guess they like their mountains flat, their forests dead, and their water metal-laden.

Kind of explains a lot, really.

FormlessOne: West Virginia is one of the armpits of the country.

Actually, it's one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. As far as the mountaintop removal bit, yah, that's pretty ugly, and I'm not making excuses for it, but if you're not in the tourism or logging industries, there's not much else work in WV except for coal mining. As a matter of fact, the coal mine shutdowns in the '50s are the reason for WV's declining population trend; reopening the mines has given the state a much-needed influx of jobs and money. Yes, things should be done in a more environmentally-conscious manner, but being a snarky about it doesn't do any good, except for maybe boosting your ego.

Not according to US Bureau of Justice Statistics, WV is not even in the top ten (new window)

That was probably the best Daily Show episode I've scene.

Obama will lose at least 40 states in November, and probably more like 45.

That's a lot of of moonshining racists, if that's really the excuse you are going to want to use.

When I went to college there I often though of Buffalo, NY as the area between the nations balls and asshole.

That butter troll commenting on "the Other race"...geez. She It is hardly a case for white supremacy.

What did I just watch then?
 
2008-05-16 07:29:51 PM  
I was horrified while watching that clip. My own family thinks along the same lines as those featured WV's. I like to live in blissful oblivion and think that racism like that only exists in pockets, but stuff like this keeps reminding me how wrong I am.

/My own mother-in-law is afraid of Obama winning because she's convinced that the blacks will get "uppity" and rule the country.
//Truly sad...

Bag of Hammers: Not according to US Bureau of Justice Statistics, WV is not even in the top ten (new window)

Are you looking at the same page I am? It says they're #45/50 in total crime, with high crime per capita giving high rank.

Not to defend the racist hillbillies, but they do have a low crime rate.
 
2008-05-16 08:41:34 PM  
Chris Matthews is on fire this week. Bring out the douche cannon!
 
2008-05-16 11:11:26 PM  
Remember, the white people that voted for Hillary are racists, the black people that voted for Obama in NC by a margin of 93%... NOT racist.
 
2008-05-16 11:29:55 PM  
Too bad Stewart lacks the balls to call it out when it happens the other way, but that'd be anti-PC far beyond his feeble reach.
 
2008-05-16 11:45:37 PM  
randomjsa: Remember, the white people that voted for Hillary are racists, the black people that voted for Obama in NC by a margin of 93%... NOT racist.

Lets just run with the idea that your premise isn't a crock of shiat and that Hilary didn't have a strong hold on the black vote before she and hubby started comparing Obama to Jesse Jackson...

Blacks are only voting for Obama because he's black.

Whites in WV are only voting for Hilary because Obama's black.

Bit of a difference

I've had enough of Hussein.

My heart hurt when I heard that. Along with the other racist ignorant people I've heard on NPR.

Why isn't the media telling it like it is? You want ratings? Obama wants a discussion on race? Give him one. Rip the god damn gilded sheen off of this nation and show it for what it is- one of the most diverse and one of the most racist in the world.

Sickening.

This is supposed to be satire? That was goofy and obvious.
