Jumping what? Your arguments are that because people are funny it doesn't mean they are smart. So I'm just letting you know many comedy writers come from Ivy league schools.

College doesn't make you smart. It means you're really good at regurgitation. I love how people think that college is some kind of achievement.

On topic... I find Jon Stewart to be entertaining with little bits of truth thrown in. I watch for the political laughs.

Here's more of Levin's rant...

Mark Levin Rant Targets The Daily Show's Jon Stewart: "I Don't Trust Jews Who Change Their Names"

He needs psych help but will probably just pop an aneurysm soon.

I'm pretty sure Mark Levin has completely lost his mind at this point. He can't argue the merits of Stewart's comments, so let's attack a name change.

Really?

And this is THE go to commentator for the political right in this country?

And Levin would be really dumb to even try to take on Stewart. He would not stand a chance.

While you're at it why not make Kim Jong Un vice president.

Levine is a despicable human being. Anyone who pays attention to his rantings and ravings should have their head checked. If a battle of wits between he and Stewart were to happen, he would lose handily as he's unarmed, to say the least.

Have to agree with many of the commenters here questioning Mark Levins intellectual capacity. And I'm quite "conservative" on many issues, at least economically. But that gives me a keen insight into my supposed own. Most of those who speak for the Right are bat sh*t crazy.

Stewart, even as a comedian, would tear him a new one in a debate. Levin, on his radio show his national platform, had no counter argument to the simple jokes Stewart put out illustrating Israel's immense advantage over Palestine in terms of military capability. Which illustrates the fact that Israel SHOULD be the one showing the restraint and democratic initiative. Instead, they of course shoot first and ask questions later. Anyone who has read or is aware of the policy and words of leading Israeli politicians knows that the killing of innocent civilians is a strategy of the IDF, in the name of "deterrence." They cannot be stupid enough to believe this actually works. If they kill enough civilians than the people will rise up and stop Hamas or any other extremists from attacking Israel? More like, they're ensuring generations of Israeli hatred in the region and giving extremists all the recruitment tools they need.

Going to school doesn't make you smart? Did you seriously just write that?

Good luck reading this thread and being able to post in it without ever having to go to school.

This thread is full of leftists doing what they do best -- drawing ignorant conclusions from a quick glance at the real world, and then defending those conclusions with delusional fury.

When all you can do is call for your opponent to be locked up, you have lost the debate.

Wow, talk about incompetence. You just made a quip about me reading when you couldn't even read/comprehend what I even said. I said college, not school. There is a fundamental difference between basic schooling and college/university.

Thanks for the laugh

Oh no, I read you correct. College is school and if you think doctors, teachers, lawyers, business managers, scientists, and so on, become such without school, well...

I'm not even gonna argue with you so feel free to continuing attacking my reading comprehension. Agree to completely disagree.

I've always like Mr. Stewart; he has always been able to be funny while getting directly to the point which takes a good level of intelligence. This Levin character though, his arguments were lacking in any substance. His counters to Stewart would never convince me or anyone with a logical mind.

a reply to: Swills I'd have to agree with Aedaeum; college doesn't make you smart. Only you can make yourself smart through hard work, dedication and constant motivation. Knowledge can be attained in many place's, not just a school setting. So, your argument is a bit lacking. Also, MarlinGrace is correct by stating you jumped to conclusions. He was just countering the crappy logic with the same logic in order to make a point, not because he actually believes that because one has a government job that one is not intelligent.

Oh my god. I cannot believe I have 2 people here who think going to college doesn't make one smarter. Yeah because learning new things everyday doesn't make you smarter? Who do you think taught you and your children to read and write? It was college educated teachers.

I'm really done with this topic. It's ridiculous.

That's only somewhat appropriate. Levine couldn't handle Vezzini nor the dreaded pirate Roberts.

BTW, if you can somehow insert the Princess Bride into a debate, you win, so congrats! Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Thanks for the levity.

Levin may want to watch it when it comes to Jon Stewart because intellectually Stewart will chew him up and spit him out. Levin really doesn't know much about show business because look at how many people change their names when they go into show business it's commonplace.


Stewart will cower before Levin's 170db of rage
