Where's The "Think And Do" Page?


If you were ever wondering about which way the Washington Post leans in regards to it's political affiliations, look no further than this article. It literally drips with GOP gladhanding. Nice job, guys. Maybe you should just have a special " Hugs 'N Kisses" issue for Dubya.

The article basically picks apart the reasons why John Kerry decided to use ComedyCentral's "The Daily Show" as his first television interview since the Swift Boaters started their failed attack on Kerry's Vietnam service record. The article basically tries to make fun of John Stewart's show, even though it is considered one of the best news and information programs out there.

The Post talked at some length with Ben Karlin, the show's executive producer, who did not mince words when asked why Kerry's people decided to use "The Daily show" as it's next outlet.

All of us [on 'The Daily Show'] are just blown away by the turn the campaign has taken," Karlin said. "We cannot believe that this is what is being talked about at this juncture. It's so astounding to us. We are trying to work through our amazement and to conduct a meaningful conversation absent of incredulity, because [the interview] is not going to go anywhere if you just say, 'What the fuck is going on?' "

Well, you have to see the interview to understand the article. Kerry comes off as a little stiff, but resolved in his decision to win this election by his stance on the issues afflicting our country, and not simple mudraking. He's doomed.

Also, if you Google this article, you can find all the other like-minded news outlets that decided to repost this editorial piece rather that hammer out their own two-hundred word article. At least my crappy article was mostly my wording. It just was written crappy. So what? You got beef with me? Huh?
