Jon Stewart on NewYorkerGate

Stewart remarks on Obama’s “tasteless and offensive” response:

“Really? You know what your response should’ve been? It’s very easy here, let me put the statement out for you: Barack Obama is in no way upset about the cartoon that depicts him as a Muslim extremist. Because you know who gets upset about cartoons? Muslim extremists! Of which Barack Obama is not. It’s just a fucking cartoon!”

This Neo-Progressive outrage machine is becoming part of the problem. This is nothing worth talking about. Banks are failing. There is a story out in Vanity Fair that suggests that the collapse of Bear Sterns had nothing to do with the mortgage crisis, but was engineered by other traders.

I know it’s a bit of an overload, but things going on right now should be paid attention to.
