President Barak Obama Takes Over The Daily Show the week of October 29th

President Obama spends the entire episode of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. You don’t need my comments on it, so all I will say is if you are eligible to vote in this year’s election just go out and vote.

From 1989-2010 John McCain has been deriding the broken Washington system. I could do without the bit of ageism from Stewart, but other than that, it is another example of the great video archive search work they do on the show.

NPR may be a lot of things for firing Juan Williams, but I doubt they’re an agent of a jihadi inquisition! Fox News doesn’t just fight back, they always bring the big guns with them. I think some of these “scandals” are just ways to fill time in the 24 hour news cycle. If you read the press from NPR as to why they fired Mr. Williams, it has just as much to do with Mr. Williams’ constantly appearing on Fox News in a manner that NPR did not like.

Here are some more campaign ads for 2010, this time Democrats running away from the Democratic party, unlike Tom Perriello of Virginia who Colbert talks to and is actually running on Democratic achievements.
