This past weekend’s Restore Sanity rally was less than inspiring. Jon Stewart’s disingenuous claims of non-partisanship kind of kill the whole thing for me. Sure he’s funny, and I’ll watch him any day of the week, but lets face it, he’s preaching to the choir. He’s hardly the big-tent he thinks he is.
In the words of an internet friend: “John Stewart wears a clown face. Truth is that he’s as much a political animal as any of his peers on CNN or Fox. From the show I get that he’s liberal and a big supporter of Obama. Giving Obama ‘tough’ questions is his way of pretending like he’s unbiased. He portrays it all as satire, but this ‘rally’ is obviously a snub to the folks who dig on Fox News and think Glen Beck is cool.
In saying that I am not defending Glen Beck. I think Glen Beck is a fucking moron. I just don’t think we need a smarmy know-it-all type like John Stewart lecturing us naive folk on why it is so.”
That being said, remember Rob Cordry’s days on The Daily Show? Well, he turned up on some hilarious promo videos for the latest Assassin’s Creed game on my Xbox 360 dashboard. Since its highly unlikely that my blog peeps who don’t play videogames will ever see them, I’m gonna post ’em up.
What a WIN advertising campaign!
