I understand why Stewart is on TV, he is one funny dude. For those that did not catch his rant about the Trump/Palin pizza meeting, make sure your chair has a seatbelt installed. And, although he caters to the stoner/liberal/academician (clueless)/unemployed types, he rips people from both parties, so his success and longevity is pretty much set in stone. But Maher, I could never figure out the demand side of the supply/demand dynamic. Sure, he mouthpieces the typical Hollywood pablum, liberals are caring folks who champion all the causes of the little folk, who care about the environment and want everyone to be taken care off, those that would not push wheel chair bound grandma over a cliff. Some folks still buy that nonsense, and are the one’s that laugh heartily when Maher makes a retarded joke about one of Palin’s off spring, or how she deserves to get gang raped by ghetto dwellers, funny stuff. Dick Cheney and a slow painful death are also big laugh grabbers. But a TV show where liberals get together and brainstorm the appeal of conservatives? I thought MSNBC had that concept locked:
Many things we could talk about here, such as reality TV, anybody here watch reality TV? Anybody here think reality TV is real? I’m probably not a great judge in this area since I never watch reality TV. I assume this is stuff like “housewives of-pick your city” or “Dancing with Eddie Haskell”.
I had to chuckle at Maher laughing about Palin being authentic. The path she charted, modest school, city council, governor, a reputation for fighting the status quo, sky high approval ratings, I’d say she is the very definition of “authentic”.
Whether anybody could be president of this dumb f-cking country, I think the guy in there now validates some of that. A stellar resume, an exposed and public background, experience as an executive (running anything), all of this was lacking with Obama, yet did not prove debilitating.
And who votes for the guy they least like? Maybe people in those 57 states.
