  •  Love Stewart, but in the end he's just a comedian (4+ / 0-)

    I've noticed that Stewart is like so many liberal political comedians and talk show hosts in that he is awesome at lampooning the low hanging fruit of conservative craziness and politics, but he falters when things get complicated and messy. When that happens, they tend to flail around, taking pot shots in random directions.

    Stewart in particular seems to view the scene from an "everyman's" perspective and doesn't like to get into the little details. That's fine and necessary for a comic performer, but he also has centrist tendencies and not nearly enough cynicism, which leads to spectacles like this remarkably dismissive putdown of Krugman.
