This Blog Likes Jon Stewart And The Daily Show

I like satire. Like, for example, the late and incomparable George Carlin.



Or the late, great Bill Hicks.





My big problem is that what often stands for satire these days is way too nice. Give me some bilious stuff that really goes after the bastards. The nastier and funnier, the better!

Alas, we don't have anything remotely like Mark Twain these days - and if we did, the writing would be suppressed!

As a consolation prize, here are recent segments from a program that still runs on cable TV that covers mass media and current events in a humorous way. Yes, indeedy, the last faint gasp of this sort of thing available on what Ernie Kovacs altar ego Percy Dovetonsils called "the orthicon tube", Jon Stewart and The Daily Show.
