If I had a Team of Producers and Writers, Maybe I Would be as Funny and Insightful as Jon Stewart
Damn that Jon Stewart. He makes clear what I have tried to say repeatedly about the U.S. involvement in the Middle East, and does it in a funny way to boot. I have said before that Republican presidents keep supporting and arming bad guys and countries in the Middle East (Saddam Hussein, Iran, Osama bin Laden), only to create a huge mess and have other Republican Presidents go to war against them 20 years later. I have wondered whether this isn't just a sneaky way to throw trillions of our tax dollars at giant defense contractors in a massive transfer of wealth.
But Jon Stewart gets to say that with fun little movies and all. I guess that's what you call being brilliant.
