Then you missed a lot of funny comedy because Stewart wasn't pitching any liberal agenda, he was just making fun of American politics. Something we should all take the time to laugh at once in a while.

Liberal agenda.

It fits. Democrats like to vote for comedians and clowns for elected office. I mean, heck, you guys voted in Jesse, the Clown, Ventura.

I think Colbert will do a great job. He is a true renaissance man of many talents. Bet you will be surprised at just how good he will be.

I'll miss Jon Stewart a lot--he is a voice of sanity amid the nuts. His replacement will probably be John Oliver, but I bet Brian Williams would be an excellent host of the Daily Show.

What? Ventura was a member of the Independent Party of Minnesota, which leans conservative.

Where do you get your info from? Ventura is not a liberal and was not elected by liberals. He is a Libertarian. Why do some people have such a difficult time understanding the difference?

"Ventura ran for governor and won as a member of the Reform Party, a small party founded by Ross Perot thatís main focus is fiscal and financial reform. It takes no official stance on social issues ..."

Ross Perot--a liberal?? Seriously? He took votes away from George H. Bush, who I am fairly certain is a conservative.

Ever since Stewart returned from directing his movie, Rosewater (he also wrote the screenplay), he kinda leaves the impression of someone looking to 'diversify' and explore bigger things besides just continuing to do talk shows.

Although dunno about Colbert, I know he also has a terrific following. Although unfortunately his schtick never quite does it for me. But Brian Williams… you're right, now that would be an 'ironic' way to salvage his career!!

That was my thought as well. He has done the Daily Show for almost 20 years, I can imagine that he wanted to explore more that just hosting a show. He will definitely be missed on the Daily Show, but I can't wait to see where he goes next with his career.

Why? Is the Daily Show being canceled? Sad that this is the only joke right wingers can come up with, but then again intentional humor has never really been their thing.
