John Nolte is on the case.
If establishment comedian Jon Stewart didn’t have the professional dignity to express embarrassment after the President of the United States personally endorsed his upcoming October 30th, Mock-The-People left-wing political rally, no one should be surprised over Stewart’s willingness to unashamedly accept all the Big Media astro-turf that’s already been thrown his way. Obviously the King’s favorite Court Jester has a raging case of Beck-Envy and now all the King’s Media Toadies and all the King’s Corporate Toadies are going to try and put Jon Stewart’s ego back together again: “Doesn’t America know I mock Glenn Beck!”
What John Nolte is referring to is the Restoring Sanity rally that Jon Stewart is holding in Washington DC.
Who is Jon Stewart, you ask? Just the biggest television rebel out ever. Just ask him. He'll be happy to tell you just how tough, independent and punk-rock he really is.
How rebellious is Jon Stewart? He had the writers of his show write jokes for President Obama White House Correspondents Dinner speech. How hip is Jon Stewart? He devoted half his show throwing a temper-tantrum attacking Bernie Goldberg. You want cool? Cool is getting a tongue bath from the media equivalent of the poor nerdy high-school freshman that gets stuffed into his locker every day.
Maybe all that hasn't convinced you just how anti-establishment Jon Stewart is. Check this out and know the level of commitment Jon Stewart has to going against the corporate Man.
Whether you lean left or right, hail from a blue state or red, prefer keeping sanity, fear, or a healthy dose of both alive and well, the one thing we all have in common is that we’ve pledged allegiance to the MTV Networks flag. And when an opportunity arises to support one (or two) of our own. we’ll take it pretty much every time.
You may have heard that Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are hosting a little get together on the National Mall in Washington, DC on Saturday, October 30th. … This will be a day when — no matter what transpires from Jon, Stephen, and their special guests — our brothers and sisters at Comedy Central will own the cultural conversation, without question. Who would want to miss that one?
On the morning of October 30th, we’re loading up a fleet of buses here at 1515 Broadway and sending as many of you as we can down to DC for a free one-day, round-trip journey to join in the Rally to Restore Sanity and March to Keep Fear Alive. It’s about a 5 ½ hour trip down 95 to our nation’s capital[.]
Because nothing says 'edgy' like a man having to beg his multinational business bosses to strong-arm employees into sitting on a bus and showing up for a company-mandated meeting. /sarc
If Jon Stewart hadn't hoodwinked a generation of mediocre college-age hipster douchenozzles into believing the tired statist bullsh*t he spews on the Daily Show, the backstory behind the Restoring Sanity rally might be pitiful. Stewart has received numerous accolades from the lamestream media. By his own standards--being adored by the left-wingers in Hollywood and the coasts--he's succeeded beyond his wildest dreams or his talents. The tastemakers of the progressive movement have been kissing his butt for a decade.
But his ego just won't be satisfied with all of the honors and huzzahs he's received. Amazing. "Restoring Sanity" should be renamed "Stewart's Vanity."
One wonders if the scary-smart people in Stewart's audience realize they're being used like a Kleenex. Given the monumental self-regard displayed by the average Daily Show fan, the answer is probably 'no'. Many liberals believe they're part of an intellectual vanguard; they think they're the only ones who can see the wheels-within-wheels machinations of AmeriKKKa's Reich-wing fascist society. For the folks not coerced into attending "Restoring Sanity" by their corporate superiors, the rally is going to be a wonderful celebration of the Left movement in 2010. It'll be the secular-statist equivalent of meeting the Pope.
Sadly, it turns out the Pontiff of Progressivism is a sad insecure geek that has to create a pathetic imitative media event in order to buck up his ever-sagging ego.
Hey liberals: Enjoy being the tools of a lame self-loathing television clown.
In addition: Here's your moment of Zen--Jon Stewart gets his ass handed to him by John Yoo.
