    I didn't link that exact same diary in the very first sentence of this diary.

    Sheesh.

    I do transcripts of interesting Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert segments that are political in nature, and of Bill Maher's final New Rule.  Almost always, his final New Rule is something liberals and progressives will agree with 100%.  Does that mean I agree with him 100%?  Nope.  But does it mean I have to be a repetitive bore and do a laundry list of everything I disagree with him on every time I do a transcript?  Nope.  IMO, it would only serve to distract from the main point of his final New Rule each week.

    And actually, it turns out there's stuff I disagree with Jon about as well, but I don't feel the need to mention it every goddamn time I do a transcript.  The purpose is to spread an important message in that transcript to a wider audience that hadn't seen it, because it usually made some incredibly awesome arguments on a particular issue in a funny and satirical way.  Attacking the messenger only serves to distract from that message.

    I mean, you don't see me whining all over the place about you hyping a website that's attacked Elizabeth Warren as little more than a wolf in sheep's clothing, do you?
