Exams are now pretty much finished for me, which has allowed me some down time. Amongst this downtime, there are the regular things like hanging out with friends and such, some chances to fiddle around with Linux OSes, and, of course, an abundance of time to watch Comedy Central! 😀
I thought this clip here was worth sharing. It was pretty vintage Stewart, and one of the better Daily Show clips I’ve seen in a while.
When Stewart’s at his best, he not only makes you split a gut — as per Stephen Colbert — but he can come up with some pretty thoughtful points to boot. That’s not to say that Colbert never does, but Stewart still comes across as more genuinely thoughtful, to me.
The point about the elites at the very tail end of the segment was one of those moments, IMO. There was a lot of good political humour all the way through. But then the tossed-in “You might have your head carved into a mountain! Let’s hope you think you’re better than us!” at the end was the clincher on a great clip.
It’s clips like these, that rub against Mainstream Media’s usual slants, that still make the Daily Show worth watching!
