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.
10 minutes – the duration of the first meeting with McChrystal
Their first one-on-one meeting took place in the Oval Office four months later, after McChrystal got the Afghanistan job, and it didn’t go much better. “It was a 10-minute photo op,” says an adviser to McChrystal. “Obama clearly didn’t know anything about him, who he was.
20 minutes the duration of the first meeting with BP executives
President Obama also took part for 20 minutes at the start of the meeting. It was Obama’s first face-to-face confrontation with Hayward and BP chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg since the environmental disaster in the Gulf of Mexico began 57 days ago. Vice
And then, finally, the president ended General McChrystal’s command in a meeting that lasted only 20 minutes.
I have been wondering about that pattern. Finally, The Onion to the rescue! It explained everything to me
Obama’s Weekly Video Addresses Becoming Increasingly Avant-Garde
Hailed as a sign of renewed government transparency when they began airing last year, President Barack Obama’s weekly video addresses have grown increasingly experimental in recent weeks, raising eyebrows nationwide.Videos like the one that aired Tuesday morning, which begins with Obama outlining his new plan to provide healthier school lunches to the nation’s children, but soon devolves into frantic editing, unsettling imagery, and dissonant audio effects, have left many wondering about the president’s ultimate message.
My work speaks for itself,” Obama said as he applied blackface makeup to prepare for the shooting of a new video called Ask/Tell/Die. “I can’t tell the people of our great nation what to think or how to react. That’s up to the viewer.
Silly B0bots! All this time you were trying to learn multidimensional chess.
Said Kirk to Spock in The Carbomite Maneuver:
Not Chess, Spock. Poker.”
Said The Onion to the bewildered nation: Not chess, nation. Art. Avant-garde,.
Psst! B0bots! Lay of it already!
With one move, President Obama was able to:
1. Get rid of McChrystal
2. Demote Petraeus (he was head of CentComm, now he’s a field General again)
3. de-fang any criticisms the right could have over the McChrystal firing
4. Remove a possible 2012 opponent.
5. boost troop morale
Damn… he’s better at this than even *I* thought.
That ought to be a whole lot of “better”.
