    As Chris Hedges has noted, these guys are funny, but they are also millionaires, and while taking the piss out of the silliness of the players in the system, they are just as part of it and will never fundamentally attack it.

      Well I think we just achieved new levels in taking something waaaaaaaaaaay too seriously. Also, millionaires? Comedy Central pays that well? And did you actually miss Jon Stewart’s amazing turn on Crossfire?

        I did enjoy his debate against Bill O’Reilly, it had me in stitches. Even from the start, with the podium nonsense, showed American politics for the inane, vapid ego driven politics we are headed for far too quickly here.

    Poly: Evasion
    Reporter: “What are the other five points”
    Poly: more evasion
