Lewis Black: “Glenn Beck Has Nazi Tourette’s” (VIDEO)

First Posted: 05-13-10 08:40 AM   |   Updated: 05-13-10 08:46 AM

Glenn Beck’s antics have always proved to be great fodder for the “Daily Show.” Lewis Black took it a step further with an entire segment mocking the Fox News host for his tendency to make everything Nazi-related.

Black was set off by Beck’s recent complaint that critics of Arizona have played the Nazi card. Incapable of believing that Beck thought this was going too far, Black exclaimed,”This is a guy who uses more swastika props and video of the Nuremberg rallies than the History Channel.”

Black went through clip after clip, showcasing how easily Beck transitions from a seemingly tame subject (like Al Gore or the Peace Corp) to Nazi analogies. He joked that it’s like playing ‘Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon,” except “there’s just one degree and Kevin Bacon is Hitler.”

The only reasonable explanation according to Black? “Glenn Beck Has Nazi Tourette’s.”

Stewart Takes On EVERYTHING: Mocks Rekers’s Rentboy Romp, BP, Greece, And More (VIDEO)

Huff Post- First Posted: 05- 7-10 08:16 AM   |   Updated: 05- 7-10 08:44 AM

While it was tempting to just discuss the fact that Roland Martin inexplicably wore an ascot on national television, Jon Stewart had his hands full during last night’s opening segment. Moronic “wannabombers,” Greece’s economic downfall, George Reker’s rentboy romp, and BP’s attempt to cap the oil spill were all covered and mocked mercilessly – and hilariously.

Too much to cover here, but highlights included a demonstration of BP’s containment dome that involved Mentos, Diet Coke, and a fishing pole. As an added bonus, if you pay close attention to the “Daily Show” switchboard bit at the end, you’ll hear an operator say, “There’s no Jon Daily that works here.” Gold.

Jon Stewart Revels In GOP Bondage Club Scandal (VIDEO)

Huff Post- First Posted: 03-31-10 08:31 AM   |   Updated: 03-31-10 08:41 AM

The majority of the news stories covered by Jon Stewart are of a serious tone. So while we get to reap the benefits of his satirical breakdown, he’s got to deal with the weighty stuff. But shouldn’t he get to have some fun, too?

Last night he got his opportunity. Upon hearing the RNC spent nearly $2000 at a lesbian bondage-themed strip club, “The Daily Show” ran with it. A Muppet reenactment, a correspondent totem pole, and Groucho glasses were all included. It was fantastic. Did we mention MUPPET REENACTMENT!??

Jon Stewart’s Spends Half His Show Skewering Glenn Beck

HuffPost– First Posted: 03-19-10 02:16 AM   |   Updated: 03-19-10 08:50 AM

Jon Stewart gets a lot of material from Glenn Beck, but the Daily Show host went all-in on Thursday night with a whopping 15-minute parody of the Fox News host.

Words don’t really do it justice, unless they’re on a chalkboard, so just enjoy the video …

A predictable member of the corporate superstructure that was imported from Bu$hco; Kit will do and say anything that greases the skids for the Neo Republicon agenda. Some of his main contributors are Boeing and Monsanto. He is involved in”Vote Smart”, which is, in my opinion, mind control for dummies.

Our legal rights are eroding because of one voiced neo conservatives like him that fight meaningful change and promote the corporate government that Obama inherited. A substantial majority of Americans — 65 percent to 33 percent — believe that it was the correct action for the FBI to read him those rights, including the right to remain silent, according to a CNN/Opinion Research poll conducted Feb. 12-15.

And here’s a more rational viewpoint from Crooks and Liars

Jon Stewart Exposes Fox News ‘Balance,’ Goes After Sarah Palin And Megyn Kelly (VIDEO)

Huff Post- First Posted: 03- 4-10 06:12 AM   |   Updated: 03- 4-10 07:55 AM

It looked like Jon Stewart was going for some of his bread-and-butter Sarah Palin jokes on Wednesday night, mocking her appearance on NBC’s Tonight Show and tossing in a little ribbing of Jay Leno.

But the quips about a Palin “Fair and Balanced” remark quickly turned into an amusing — if not scathing — indictment of Fox News programming, particularly host Megyn Kelly and her new mid-day program, America Live.

Stewart hounded the network about an apparent lack of balance, ranging from the show’s promos (showing a clean-cut man in a Jesus t-shirt evidently representing the right, juxtaposed with an “angry nose-ring liberal lady” pointing at his face) to the actual reporting and clips that only showed one-sided opinions from a very homogeneous group. He emphasized that this was one of the few programs held during the network’s allotted news time, as opposed to shows that are explicitly opinion.

The Daily Show segment ended with a flourish, showing clips that seemed to indicate an inconsistent approach at Fox News to polling, endorsing or dismissing polls depending on the results.

Stewart Schools Jim Bunning For Repeated Objections (VIDEO)

First Posted: 03- 2-10 08:32 AM   |   Updated: 03- 2-10 08:41 AM

While Jon Stewart seemed optimistic about the progress made by last week’s health care summit, the media’s overall consensus was that nothing had been accomplished. But as he pointed out last night, it wasn’t the only issue bogged down by Republican opposition. Stewart took on Kentucky Senator Jim Bunning, mocking his repeated objections to a bill that would extend unemployment benefits for 30 days.

Making Bunning out to be a villain who’ll obstruct anything from legislation to birthday pizza, Stewart noted that in the Senate it often takes 60 votes to get anything done, but “sometimes in the Senate it only takes one person to cock the whole thing up.” How draining were Bunning’s nine objections? Toward the end, Al Franken began to look like a broken down old man.

Stewart acknowledged that despite the Democrats’ hopes that he’d get sleepy, Bunning was willing to stay up as long as necessary — even if it meant missing the basketball game he’d planned on watching. Stewart summed up his ridiculousness: “You see that’s the difference between Jim Bunning’s pain and the pain of the unemployed. Jim Bunning’s pain can be fixed by a Tivo.”
