I watched it on TV and Tweeter – and there were some beauties appearing on my page.
Podhoretz was feeling in hell –
jpodhoretz John PodhoretzSeriously. This is comedy Hiroshima.
The appearance of Yusuf Islam – now only Yusuf produced some great comments.
Harry Shearer wondered where his last name went.
I’ve seen video of that British TV segment abt Rushdie on YouTube. Stevens/Islam had it pulled down re: copyright claim. I wonder why.
Here’s the video of Stevens/Islam on Rushdie: http://is.gd/guDMB
I bet Yusuf hates being called Cat Stevens as much as I hate being called Anakin
It wasn’t a big shark but Jon Stewart jumped one just now with the “everybody on Thr cable is the same” naiveté
@littleleaf2 when did I say I loved Jon?
Salon Salon.comHas Jon Stewart jumped the shark?
tomtomorrow Tom Tomorrowby edgeoforeverThis is sounding like a college freshman stoner session. Dude if we just all remember we’re like human beings you know?
digby56 digbyThis might be useful if even one right winger gave a damn. Essentially he’s just telling the left to pipe down. They sure won’t.
Interesting Stewart and the White House echo the same critique of 24/7 news cycle. But isn’t that a function of blogs and online community?
Putting forth this idea: Obama wouldn’t be president without the 24/7 news cycle

Sort of amazing how far the irony/earnestness pendulum has swung back towards irony after just 2 years.
jpodhoretz John PodhoretzTragic fact: Sanity really right about where it was before 11 this morning.
The cover of the day may not even have anything to do with Teh bomb that ate the elections but illustrates my point: think of that silhouette as the American voter faced with the worthy successor of W Terra Bush:
and now some of the actual headlines: The Daily News for something not bigger really than the Time Square car bomb

As it becomes more and more clear that Jr.jr is the set-up for Jeb to ride in on a white horse to save us all in 2012, I wasn’t surprised to see NY Times featuring him:
I would have had the silly expectation that they would have avoided talking rope in the election thief’s house. But there was Bill Clinton bashing to be done – so no holds barred.
The very first question asks Mr Florida 2000 to judge Bill Clinton based on the proven false story they front-paged today:
We saw the news break that former President Bill Clinton had been in discussions with Kendrick B. Meek [the Democratic candidate for Senate] about possibly getting out of the race. What kind of picture does that present to you?
And Jeb, who admitted on NPR in 2001 that he was the local decision maker for the Bush campaign in the recount debacle, didn’t disappoint
The reason why there is such a reaction to the usual politics of the day is just these kind of backroom deals. It reminds me that Charlie Crist [the Florida governor and Independent candidate for Senate] will do anything possible to get elected.
Oh, the humanity!
The cover of the day goes to The Examiner DC for their hilarious headline
POLICE BRACE FOR HALLOWEEN HAVOC: WARY OF STEWART FANS, COLLEGE TRICKSTERS
Wait, aren’t the Stewart fans the college tricksters? They sure played a trick on us once!
and just because I want it, I’ll go to the next Halloween headline
The next scary thing per DC’s express, elections’ red scare ads
And remember the oil kill in the Gulf? I think it’s a miracle it didn’t happen earlier, considering the care Halliburton and BP put in building the stuff. Now that corporations are persons, will there be anyone in jail?
Also note the NYT typical Bill Bash on the page.
