Yeah, I was going to watch the GOP debacle last night, but I fell asleep before it got started. Figured I'd watch the highlights and ATS activity
today for that. (Which I did...Thanks to ChiefD for the thread, btw)
But I missed The Daily Show's finale also - just finished watching it, and my cheeks are tear-stained now....
Jon Stewart has been a staple part of my household since he first started. I am very and sincerely sad that we are losing another one of the most
sensible, sane, and important news shows (satire or not, I, like millions of people, got most of my news from The Daily Show - it has been the only
way I can really stomach any of it). Funny as hell in a very sad way that it was the same night as the three-ringer "Fox" debate.
Some of you, I know, don't have cable. Sad as it is that without cable, or an internet connection, people can't watch it.
So, I thought I'd just post a link to it here.
(Was surprised to see no thread about Jon Stewart's final show - so: here you go, Our moment of Zen)
August 6, 2015 - Jon Stewart's Final
He does discuss the debate a little bit at the beginning....
but the rest of show is a tribute to 16.5 years of comic relief while dealing with the insanity that is the USA.
Bon voyage, Jon.
