Jon Stewart Blasts Republicans for their Divisive Hypocrisy

Republicans: The Lost Party (political)

I especially like the part where Romney claims that the Republicans are the party of the revolutionaries and Democrats are the “party of the Monarchists” the ultimate irony being that both he a Jeb Bush are heirs to their Fathers’ political fortunes and influence.

Hath Mitt NO SHAME?

Link – As the party comes to grips with its status as a regional political force that cannot hold historically Republican districts in New York, cannot keep a five-term senator from Pennsylvania in the caucus, and cannot appear to stem the popularity of a Democratic president who has made inroads in the West, throughout the Midwest, and even in pockets of the South.

Jon Stewart had a segment last night entitled “Republicans: The Lost Party” and stories like this one only serve to feed that narrative as the party feeds on itself. In Illinois, we have seen the circular firing squad that is the state GOP keep the party down for most of this century — the state chair is inevitably the subject of scathing criticism from within, and finger-pointing is the rule rather than the exception. The same dynamics now appear to be at work in the RNC.

It couldn’t happen to a nicer group of people.

Maybe the circular firing squad IS the best strategy.

The night Jon Stewart wasn’t funny – with Cramer

Stewart has been trying to make the point that CNBC is not a news organization, it’s a promo organization for Wall Street. And that, in fact, when it should have reporting the lying, cheating, and stealing going on, they were just pumping stocks and telling us everything was hunky dory.

If you aren’t one of the millions who have already watched the Stewart interview with Jim Cramer, here are the three clips featured on the HuffingtonPost, comprising the entire interview, uncut and unedited (for sure watch the 3rd clip). Stewart is dead serious and clearly pissed off. The original ‘Market Manipulation’ Cramer interview is included at the end of this post.

Continue here to see clips 2 and 3. Stewart really takes it to Cramer in the 3rd clip. Read the rest of this entry »
