So now that Barack Obama has been inaugurated the pundits have begun their big fat lies. As if it wasn't bad enough that in the lead-up to the election the stupidest talking heads that flap their big dumb mouths were saying that Jon Stewart wouldn't want a democrat in the White House because he wouldn't be able to make fun of them. I think that he answered this exact line of questioning most eloquently back in 2004 when asked a similar question on the air and his response was (and I'm paraphrasing here) "yes, because I care so much more about my ratings than my country" (read that with a typical heaping dose of Stewart sarcasm.
There's really no excuse for this nonsense, especially a day after their Changefest '09 episode in which they lampooned President Obama's inauguration speech by comparing it to speeches given by the now former President, George W. Bush.
Hey pundits! He says what's funny and makes fun of the ridiculous side of politics and American pop culture. Have you not been watching? The Daily Show mercilessly attacked Obama all the way through the campaign just as they did McCain. Obviously with McCain's schizophrenic campaign and vice-presidential nominee Annie Oakley there may have been more jokes about them than Obama-Biden but the Daily Show, to their immense credit, have never pulled a joke for ideological reasons.
The idiot pundit that I saw tonight was a bald dude on Chris Matthews' Hardball. Don't know his name and I hope he's eating dog food and living on the street soon.
