Jon Stewart destroys Fox Nation (again)!

First things first: Welcome back Jon Stewart! We missed ya.

Jon Stewart at his rhetorical very best -- both caustic and witty -- chastises the Obama administration for dragging us to the doorstep of war (based on an off-the-cuff campaign pledge) and he absolutely eviscerates Fox News for their knee-jerk anti-Obama reactions.

You see, Fox being Fox, absolutely had to spin great news -- a possibility of averting war -- into an Obama defeat.

As Jon states:

“Who cares how we avoided a war and got a dictator to give up his chemical weapons if we avoided a war and got a dictator to give up his chemical weapons.”


And I get that Fox opposes a Syria peace plan because its motus operandi is to foment dissent in the form of a relentless and irrational contrarianism to Barack Obama and all things Democratic to advance its ultimate objective of creating a deliberately misinformed body politic whose fear, anger, mistrust and discontent is the manna upon which it sustains its parasitic succubus-like existence.

  1. Yeah. That seems to be the flavor. Fox spun it negatively here like nobody's business. But equally ticking me off are the reporters and news networks fawning over Obama's fumbling--and lucking!--his way into a potential solution.

    For folks who buy Reid's take, that it was Obama's confusing and meager threat of force that conveniently brought two allied American enemies together to further coercion, then I have a litter of baby unicorns going on Craigslist.

    Call it what it is. Fox may be grilling Obama in knee-jerk fashion, but there are multiple other networks who are adjusting their coverage in order to ensure that Kerry, Obama, Obama, Kerry, Kerry, Obama align, and that things like "red line" are always what Obama say most recently and not previously. Seriously. Even if Fox weren't grilling him unfairly (and I agree that they are in this instance), it would seem like it juxtaposed against the other big networks whose coverage is like a One Direction fan talking about Harry's haircut.

    Fox doesn't need contrarianism in this instance. Any objective observer of this situation has seen contrary messages from the administration itself and especially from President Obama.

    And where has Stewart been?
