Thank you Jon Stewart

for voicing my angst over again the medias misrepresentation & outright ignoring this moment we are contributing to...I'm sharing this and think this is a tipping point for the Jon to shame the talking heads.

So good to see that an independent thinker like Jon Stewart

can point at the obvious TRUTH and still thrive in his business!

Kudos to his courage to dare mention RON's phenomenal success at Ames on the air.

So sad that only comedians are allowed to speak the truth

In america today, only comedians are allowed to speak the truth. Everyone else is obligated to pretend they are deaf and blind.

Was not it like this for most of human history?

Court Jester's role comes to mind... :-/

But this can be huge indeed! Truth needs to be said, even if by a court jester!

OMG...I just watched that

OMG...I just watched that clip....what a riot!!!

He really spoke for all in the grassroots movement

he said thing we all thought and wanted to say ....
thank you Mr Stewart for addressing the media of their blatant bias. and deceit.

thanks to someone for editing and creating youtube clip ... but I will stay up tonight in hope for a better quality of same edit clip.

that's great - much thanks from all of us.

"sometimes I hug the coffee table when no one is looking."


We just needed more Ron Paul fans in the audience to give it the applause it deserved.

The mediaite link is a good quality video.


to Email Jon and thank him for the spot...
be sure to highlight "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart":



"Thank you. I don't always watch your show, and don't always agree with some of your beliefs, but I admire the hell out of you showing the hypocrisy of the media treatment of Ron Paul.
There is a REASON "the establishment" wants to keep Ron Paul away from the people. He threatens their little crap game, and they know it. Both sides are for more wars, and more debt, and spending. They keep us fighting with each other, to keep us divided and conquered. Thanks for standing up for truth today. Much respect."

Be covert!!!

I acted as an innocent by standard who just happened to notice the oddity of Paul being omitted and how I thought the segment was hilarious.

Lets make it sound like the general crowd noticed and not just Ron Paul supporters.

Thank you Jon Stewart!!

That was AWESOME!

Good on Jon Stewart!

He has helped a lot more than he's hurt.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.
