Don't worry, there's plenty of great material coming out now.

"You had me at 'We're farked.'"

Good stuff. Surely will all be forgotten the next time Stewart makes a crack at a Republican.

Take the long view, folks.

I just skimmed through the economic stimulus plan....So it's a bunch of stuff that would help me on my taxes next year but we make about $10,000 to much to get the full effect of anything.

There are already two college credits (for about that much) but you can't claim both. Is this just going to be a 3rd one? oh and raising PELL grants by $281. Whoopdedoo. You have to be poor as fark to qualify for those anyway.
 
2009-02-11 10:34:52 AM  
shiat I meant to quote GaryPDX in that post. The "stimulus" is going to give a lot of material that's for sure.
 
2009-02-11 10:36:35 AM  
Actually that was quite funny.

Love the pause....uhh....pause part.

Well at least Obama doens't pack in his town halls with approved people. Unless he wanted someone to ask that question. 0.o
 
2009-02-11 10:51:20 AM  
There's a similar video with Bush doing the "uh" thing somewhere. I couldn't find it.

I'm glad that comedians are trying again. It's been too easy for 8 years.
 
2009-02-11 10:55:35 AM  
That was quite hilarious! I enjoyed the dig on the washington post.

Yes you can, if you have two students in college. The HOPE is for freshman and sophmores, but the lifetime learning can be for anyone.

Stewart is an infadel!

That actually would be an awesome drinking game.

If you have two kids in college you have way more financial problems than a $2500 tax credit. lol

/will have two kids in college at the same time starting 2016 *cry*
 
2009-02-11 11:00:05 AM  
Gee, I wonder if corporate big whig conservatives had anything to do with this. I thought Stewart was a little more firm in his convictions than that. Sad to see him cave. The country needs to hear support of Obama right now...not absurd pot shots.
 
2009-02-11 11:00:38 AM  
Well, ah, I, ah, think that's, ah, pretty funny, with, ah, um, ah or, ah, it could be funny if ah, well, ah, it's important, to ah, look to ah, the future.

...who's in college now? you? take the LLC.

Also, once your kids are both in college your expected family contribution gets cut in half. It doesn't totally make up for it, but it takes some of the sting out.

If you want to die of alcohol poisoning.

It was pretty funny, but then again, I've always made fun of Obama, even when I campaigned and voted for him (because, well, there is plenty to make fun of). Making fun of politicians, even the ones you like, is like shooting fish in a barrel.
 
2009-02-11 11:03:47 AM  
It doesn't take long to develop an overarching opinion about a president, then perceive all their actions to confirm that opinion. Bush II was "stupid." Bush I was a "wimp." Clinton was a "womanizer." Reagan was "senile."

Sorry folks, but Obama is "boring."

I'd rather have boring than stupid.

Yeah... i so don't get this.

boy who cried wolf, man. We knew you were a troll before, now we know you...troll for both teams?

I also find it strange that the most invigorating and incredible speaker America has seen in a generation is somehow classified as "boring". He's boring to people like O'Reilly, and that's a great thing.

This is UNPOSSIBLE, i had it on good authority as late as yesterday, from some of the Farkers here that Stewart was a left wing schill who would never make fun of Obama.
 
2009-02-11 11:06:36 AM  
Obama is not nearly as fun to bust on as his retarded followers are.

Maybe she was an "approved" people frustrated with the situation.

He could have easily shown the "Oh thank jebus you're here with us mortals" guy.
 
2009-02-11 11:07:31 AM  
Fark you Stewart, rot in hell! You and your ilk are responsible for putting this damned commie in office and now we're all paying out the ass for it.
 
2009-02-11 11:08:27 AM  
The local morning DJs are incorporating drops from Obama reading the "Audacity of Hope" into their show, usually timing it so "Obama" is interrupting them. So far it is working quite well

Yup we were clearly on the road to a better tomorrow at the end of the Bush years.....

O'Reilly v. Matthews was beautiful.

Good on Jon Stewart.

Remember: There are no sacred cows, just burgers that haven't been ground yet.

Is it me, or did Obama look a leeetle embarrassed by that guy after he went full retard?

you probably mean "dreams from my father", the one where he cusses.

I can't imagine a room large enough to hold such egos and doucheniess.

Anybody who bothers to actually watch Jon Stewart knows he makes fun of everyone. Only people who can't handle being made fun of think he works for "the other side."

Amen on that, excitement is over rated. I much prefer nice boring peace, contentment, prosperity....

Have to agree. Obamabots are much funnier than Obama.
 
2009-02-11 11:11:32 AM  
America is not used to a President who thinks before he opens his mouth.

ref:President Shrub.

in fact, Americans are not used to seeing anyone who actually thinks. Americans are generally dumbfrkkks who watch too much TV and drink too much beer.

It might be both, but what I have recognized is clearly from Hope. They still have to follow FCC, you know.

Yeah, I think he did too. Made me cringe.
 
2009-02-11 11:12:24 AM  
did i mention that Jon Stewart is God?
 
2009-02-11 11:13:21 AM  

Linux_Yes: drink too much beer.


heresy!
 
2009-02-11 11:13:30 AM  
I loved the O'Reilly/Matthews thing at the end. Yeah, they probably did write their words before the speech.
