The Daily Show

Now this isn’t going to be along post about how much I enjoy both the Colbert Report and the Daily Show.  But I just finished watching Monday, October 20, 2008, Daily Show and found the opening segment particularly funny and relevant.  It was well written and well delivered.  It uses the motif that the John McCain campaign has been using for some time now, “the real America”.  This is being used to describe those Americans that are “really” patriotic and have good values unlike those that live in big cities and don’t have morals or religion.  It peeves me know just writing this.  But Jon Stewart was able to turn the motif on its head and delivered an exceptionally good piece, one of the funniest in some time, so enjoy.
