Great entertainment!

Cheerful fear-monger, resolute flip-flopper, courageous team-player, who will vote multiple times, consistently, for what he claims to absolutely oppose. . .

Yup, we want to stick with THE principled wise one, all right.

I'm tired of seeing those

I'm tired of seeing those going 'Stewart is an establishment tool'. Stewart represents those who HONESTLY have good intentions with supporting a Welfare state(not those who just 'want to have their piece of the pie'). However, it is wrong, but Stewart isn't some 'monster' like O'reilly or Hannity. He is the kind of person that would exist even if Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC were chased out of the country, because he isn't 'controlling' in his approach.

I'm afraid we have to much of this 'us or them' mentality when dealing with people who don't just outright support Paul. Just cause Stewart isn't 'praising Paul', doesn't mean he's an 'establishment tool'. There's worlds of difference between him, a respectful voice that normally just focuses on the 'fallacy' of the establishment on either side, and someone like Chris Wallace who is so deep into the 'system' that they'll probably never get out.

Stewart was actually my gateway to Paul. His constant attack on the corruption of the other news outlets helped catch my eye on Paul. Moreover he makes fun of them than running a 'crusade' against them, which often, even though it's in a humorous light, shows more truth than the average 'blogger' or pundit. I'll admit, his segment where he mentioned Paul being considered 'the 13th floor' for the Republican Party was what got me into Paul. Not because he promotes civil liberty or his economic policies and what not, but because he simply sees through the shenanigans of those in the MSM.

And I know, Stewart is in it for comedy, so there is very little in the way of reasoning an argument on his positions either way, since where the satire stops isn't always easy to see. But to compare Stewart to an 'establishment tool' often disturbs me.

What was said?

Someone shouted @ 3:20 mark when Santorum was explaining himself, this was immediately after the initial booing.
Dr. Paul got a chuckle out of what was said, Does anyone know what was "Shouted" from the audience at the 3:20 mark?
I was not there.

to me it sounded like someone shouted..

It's amazing

All these Liberals including Jon Stewart love for big government(heathcare, Department of Ed, etc, since this will help the little people :) but never raises the 64K dollar question to nationalize the fed so we get debt free money and the Gov't would be charge of the money supply as opposed to private banks. Interesting to say the least. I guess when your brother works for Wall Street what can you expect.

What did he say about Santo's

What did he say about Santo's "courage" answer?


he could have piled on more than he did because santorum saying courage tottally contradicts the votes he made as team player

"LOL" is used way too much in

"LOL" is used way too much in my opinion but holy crap I seriously laughed out loud every time that "Three men and a white-haired baby" poster was put up.


Boo! I boo your uncomfortably frank assessment of our nations legislature!

Ideas are very important to the shaping of society. In fact, they are more powerful than bombings or armies or guns. And this is because ideas are capable of spreading without limit. They are behind all the choices we make.

Too Funny!

Cheerful! LOL

...a doomsday scenario and described himself as "cheerful" :D


I want a cheerful person to be President myself ;)

The other guys

are totally retarded. How do we come off as crazy?

We are not "crazy"

It is just the spin the corporate owned media uses to get the sheeple back in line

Stewart is an establishment tool,

I'll give him that.

It's a shame more of you don't see through him.

"The world is a dynamic mess of jiggling things, if you look at it right." - Richard Feynman

he isnt the sharpest tool in the shed

with his simplistic arguments against free markets and then he gives this look like he's got you when his argument can be dismantled in a couple of minutes of rational discussion.

but... we need people like him to broaden the awareness of Ron Paul... i'm pretty sure that it's sticking out that he goes after all the candidates except RP, that alone has got to have peaked the interest of enough otherwise unaware people to be worth it!

Ron Paul 2012

just like Bill Maher, who

just like Bill Maher, who rarely ever says anything negative about the good doctor. The only negative comment I've ever heard Maher say regarding Dr. Paul is that he thinks a gold standard is crazy....of course you know he agrees on war and drugs!

It's funny though how people with no economic background seem to think they comprehend the financial system.

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

Bill Maher is changing his

Bill Maher is changing his tune the more popular Dr. Paul gets. I've seen him give the doctor. I've also seen him call him some offensive names. I like John Stewart alot. He's well intentioned. Bill Maher, well I want to be dignified like Dr. Paul, so if you don't have something nice to say.....

Reporting facts

Is a symbol of a good segment?

Things are far off even if and when so-called comedians focus on the facts.

These late night talk show hosts would be good primary school teachers imo. ie. keep the kiddies entertained at least.

Meanwhile the MSM is just a waste of electricity and air space.



Ahh thats a good laugh! Cheerful!

Love to laugh

Good stuff

So funny...

as usual. He always has me in fits of laughter. I wish he would go after Obama the same way, which would then pave the way for a change in the WH.
