Fast and Furious: At least someone (Jon Stewart) is paying attention

I frequently wonder when I read the news how many other Americans are reading the same news as I.  It’s a fairly easy study to undertake.  First, you can take in Drudge Report.  Then flip to CNN.com.  The funny thing is how little overlap there is.  The next funny thing is that a lot of the controversial stories that CNN covers the Drudge reader will have already read some time before.  Most of the time, however, what you see in Drudge is only brought to light in the mainstream media (CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, NY Times, Washington Post) kicking and screaming.

That brings me to Jon Stewart.  I’m not a huge fan of his, but that’s a personal thing and really beside the point.  For the most part his political bias is plain despite his protestations to the contrary.  But I’ll cut him some slack.  Were they any other he wouldn’t be on Comedy Central.  So when he alights upon an issue that is near to conservatives’ heart, e.g., Fast and Furious, it warms my heart and while it occurs all too infrequently you know when it does that the liberal establishment has to sit up and take notice.

His takedown of Holder and Obama on the Fast and Furious scandal and the president’s naked power move of asserting executive privilege over it is (1) spot on and (2) hilarious.

Enjoy.  (Btw if you can’t watch embedded version you can click on “Watch on YouTube.”)
