I still don't think anything tops Seth Meyers saying, "Donald Trump has said he's running for president as a Republican, which is surprising because I thought he was running as a joke."

Actually, if I focused solely on comedy..I'd starve to death, but seriously I compartmentalize my humor. I have material for an act, and I've gone so far as to use it here and there as small tests. I'm getting there. More material, hone the inflections, work on impressions...

It's OK, I laugh at you for being a milllenial toolbox all the time.

At least I know and understand "satire". You can call me a millennial toolbox all you want; you'll never be as smart as I am.

Well considering he started with nothing and is one of the most successful businessmen in United states, yeah he can be an asshole all he wants - he earned it. Fact that Chicago's 3rd rate nobody is whining about his building, bad news for him - just about every farking building in America has some sign listed to it.

As for Jon Stewart, he's just farking annoying.

Al Franken has now said he's above reproach..lol

The Daily Show is a satire of news mediatainment. If "news media" weren't nakedly trying to direct the political discourse, he'd have nothing to push back against.

I know what it is, but it transcended that 5 years ago and has become the starting point for many people's news. I know this because it's obvious. The Daily Show is part of politics now.

It's propaganda disguised as comedy. And no, I don't care how that sounds since I am correct.

I want my comedy divorced from politics, I mean, they at least can't share the same beach house, except on holidays.


I LOLed.

Aristophanes in "Clouds" also had an ax to grind with the targets of his satire.  That doesn't make it anything other than the 2427 year-old farking poster-child for what farking political satire is.

Just because you don't understand what political satire is, or that its level of influence is irrelevant to its status as satire, doesn't make it less so.

brimed03: Stop painting it as something else. If you really hated TDS because you hate TV people pretending they don't play favorites, then by now you would be slamming Fox just as hard. Harder, actually; whereas, in your view, Stewart is misleading, Fox practices outright lies and open hypocrisy.

So just stop pretending.


Look, : You're insecure and you expect me to spout what you'd spout. I've already given my opinion on fox news, and since you're in love with me so much, sleuth it out yourself, or maybe ask one of your worthless online "friends" and see if you can find ONE SINGLE positive thing I have said about said TV channel.

Recently, several reputable/independent media-watch organizations have concluded that The Daily Show is a better source of informed and informative news than CNN, MSNBC, FOXNews, or most other major network news stations. Don't take my word for it, it's easy enough to find on Google. So yeah, it *has* become the starting point for many people. Don't blame The Daily Show for other networks' choices to do pandernews.

And it's not "propaganda" just because you don't agree with it. And no, saying you are correct doesn't make you correct.

By the way, comedy has *never* been divorced from politics. _Bloom County_, _Doonesbury_, Will Rogers, Mark Twain, Punch & Judy, _Punch_ magazine, court jesters through the ages... hell, Hammurabi probably had some guy off in the wings cracking jokes. Politics may not be where comedy got its start, but comedy has informed and shaped politics since forever. You'll get used to it.

I think what everyone dislikes about you is that when you are wrong (which is almost all the time), you refuse to admit that you are wrong, and instead of letting things go or leaving the thread, you dig deep with the mighty Shovel Of Arrogance, plant your Boots of Ignorance and refuse to budge off your Opinion of Worthlessness, even going so far as to insist that everyone accept that you are right when you haven't the inclination to ever back up your assertions with evidence or citations (hell, you've already done it in this thread).

That makes you a thoroughly unlikable person. Who would even want to have a conversation with someone like that?

Oh, so your infatuation with a Star Wars televised broadcast in 1982 and your creepy obsession with German history and culture (including whitewashing all the bad things they did) is part of a comedy bit?

It's cathartic.  Not much different from what hard right conservatives get out of Rush Limbaugh when they're sick to death of hard left liberalism.  That said, if I need political catharsis I'd much rather laugh with Jon Stewart than bust a rage vein with Limbaugh.

The lefties are better at comedy, that's for sure. And I appreciate the catharsis of it all, I guess it's worn thin.


"The lefties" - oh, go fark yourself Donald.

Stewart is funny AND smart. Sorry that chafes you because he doesn't suck Sean Hannity's dick while being so funny and smart. Maybe if you got smarter yourself you wouldn't want to be associated with "the righties" anymore.

It's not so much that I'm surprise that people give a crap what Donald Trump is up to, it's that I can't believe people still give a crap about Jon Stewart.  He became a cliche parody of himself within the first couple of seasons.

For some reason there's this group of people who are all about Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, The Simpsons, Family Guy, and Seth Rogan.  They get all of their news and worldviews through those lenses.  And at the same time, they're also the loudest bunch of farkers on the internet and know nothing about the things they shout about.

If you still find the Daily Show interesting, it's probably time to get out of your mom's basement and get a job.
