kafantaris: Courageous? Courageous like dashing across a battlefield under heavy enemy fire to rescue a wounded comrade? That kind of courageous? It’s comedy for God’s sake; let’s not overstate its importance.

Courage doesn’t just exist on the battlefield my friend. He says alot and does alot that many would fear for they’re “careers” over. He’s got guts.

Sad to hear. The man has a good show.. I always like how he would make a joke of reality to help people see how ridiculous the world is at times.. much like Carlin.

Maybe his almost support for Ron Paul was the last straw. Colbert has been mentioning Ron Paul and so he had to be stopped. Look what happened to Judge Andrew Napolitano when he kept mentioning Ron Paul.
Look for John Stewart to get it next.

There is a concerted effort to stop any discussion of Ron Paul in the media. Ron Paul is the only candidate that has any real answers. Yes he would have trouble getting his agenda done, but he would be a good first start.

A vote against Ron Paul is a vote for wars around the world, debt based money and unconstitutional government. The owners of the world want anyone but Ron Paul. Time to get them really angry by electing Ron Paul.

I hope the lying Lib moron stays away. His gross pandering to Obamas excrement is pathetic. So sad this kind of garbage, The Daily Show, is where the moronic masses get their “news” from.

Maybe because his schtick is getting tired, his show isn’t funny, and watching someone make jokes whose punchline is always “Republicans are stupid” gets tiring after the 100000000th time?

Probably ran afoul of election laws dealing with equal time. Show is pretty dopey most of the time. Reminds me of Sophomore year in college.

When your a left winger you can make fun of African Americans using Amos and Andy type voices. Because the left has a great history of helping Blacks by being the party of slavery in the south, the anti civil war Party of the North, The Party of Jim Crow Laws and Poll taxes, and having the KKK as there terrorist wing. Great job left!!!!!

Its a safe bet all the wingnutz complaining about where the “left” gets its news sits in front of Faux whenever the tv machine is on and/or listens to Limpballs and Beck. By the way rickdc, try to keep up, the Dixiecrats are todays Republicans, the north kicked the south’s ass because of southern slavery. AND Abraham Lincoln was a progressive. My, my how things have changed.

@conshater Studies and polls prove otherwise. Let’s face it. You get your “news” from a COMEDY program. And if you actually try to DEFEND that by saying it’s better than other sources, even though studies and COMMON SENSE show otherwise, well, you’re only proving our point about the mindset of people that get their “news” from Comedy Central.

Yeah, the Modern Republican Party has inherited all the worst aspects of the Jim Crow Southern Democrats,,,Nice Southern Strategy! Funny how you don’t find the KKK in blue states, Huh? Congratulations! The map shows where all the racist red states are now.
Funny how the redstates are where the schools perform worst,the highest levels of teenage pregnancy are and where porno is primarily consumed. Your a complex. confused bunch, keep listening to Rush and Hannity.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.

The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.

The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him president.”

LOL and you righties get mad at people like Colbert and Stewart, for ‘making fun of you’, yet you give them such easy ammunition, like many of the comments in this thread. BTW, Colbert and Stewart make fun of EVERYONE, it just is so much easier and funnier making fun of the right.

If you don’t like it, I understand that there is a little button on most media display devices that says “OFF” next to it.

Use it.

Mostly a very witty show. But, considering the shame-less hypocrisy and irrationality, and over-the-top “News” manipulation and fabrication, coming out of F-news and the current batch of public Conservatives, the comedy comes pre-canned.
