Impossible new obnoxiousness low for LIMBOsevic (abt REID). & enough terribleness for Jon STEWART
LIMBOsevic just did a parody that his clueless audience will take as real. He claimed he got a call from "somebody who went to Harvard" who told him that President OBAMA hides his academic records because he had the worst grades in Harvard history, didn't go to classes and was covered-for by his professors. First he did an elaborate setup going on and on about how he took this call despite hating phones, how he has a panic attack when phones ring or otherwise gets five minutes of funk. The only thing he left out was his drug deafness, like when he disclosed it: "I'mmmmmm... DEAFfffffffff!1"
As for Jon, he lost me when he revealed himself to be a Third Way-er, when he staged his rally in response to the BecKKK crap rally. I had discovered him delightedly when he took over the Daily Show from KILBORN, had been slightly puzzled when he wrecked Crossfire, but finally with his BecKKK rally it all became clear. I hadn't needed to ask, what does Jon want? before then, but there at that absurd crapfest where he disappointed that audience that was expecting a Liberal voice and instead served up a Mythbusters street performance, the question presented itself and was answered. From then on I haven't tuned him in, his spot is nicely filled by COLBERT and MAHER. As MAHER said back then, "If you're going to hold (an event) it needs to be about something." And MAHER's personal jerkoffs are preferable/better than Jon's Third Way thank you very much.
Anyway, STEWART gigged REID for the crack about ROMNEY-pere ashamed of son. He did zing Faux again, however and ended by saying, "There's enough terribleness to go around." Still, eye glint aside, wink wink, he still play-dates O'LOOFAH.
Jon Stewart Calls Out Harry Reid For 'Bullsh*t Shot' Against Mitt Romney (VIDEO)
.... In the interview, Reid suggested that Romney isn't sharing his tax returns with the public because he didn't pay his taxes for ten years. He immediately followed up that already-scandalous comment by stating that he "isn't certain" whether or not he's right and then adding that the late George Romney must be "so embarrassed" of his son.
ďAs someone who has truly and thoroughly disappointed his still-living father on many occasions, let me just say, that is a bullshit shot," Stewart said.
It's not that the 'Daily Show' host is against poking fun at the presidential hopeful -- he did it himself earlier in the same episode -- it's that he wishes the senator's attacks were a little more fact-based. And, you know, he wasn't evoking the name of anyone's dead father in order to make a point.
