But those didn’t count, see?

Just picked this up at The Conservative Lie, where interesting things are often found. He has more link rich info.

  1. Jon Stewart had a great one last night… Paul Ryan as a Democrat! Talking about safety nets and helping the struggling etc…

    Other than that – I wonder if something’s bothering Stewart. He seems tired and feels “heavy” somehow.. and lately.. the rally.. 9/11 vote activism.. tuscon aftermath talk.. he’s not just a funny-man anymore. And not yet fifty – maybe he’ll change course in a few years.. His contract was expanded two-three years I think, but it seems like Colbert is enjoying his job a LOT more. And Stewart is indeed a deep thinker..


    • We think too much alike – I’ve been thinking about the same thing – what I think is that he’s not finding the world so funny any more. He doesn’t want to make ha-ha about stuff that truly distresses him and pretend it’s just all fodder for the joke machine.

      You say that he is a deep thinker and I totally agree – he asks penetrating questions and sometimes his guests don’t even get the question. He goes to the heart of things – his greatest skill.

      I’d like to see him move into the real thing – something more like a magazine with a few laughs.
