Jon Stewart was interviewed by David Axelrod on Monday. He has some sharp criticism of Hillary Clinton:
I agree with Stewart about how Clinton appears inauthentic, and I think Clinton might agree with him as well (if she were being candid). She has said on more than one occasion that she is not a natural politician (like her husband). Plus the fact that Clinton is attacked for pretty much everything she says or does (and even quite a bit she didn’t actually say or do) makes her cautious, and as a result appears calculating. But as Stewart also says, that is not necessarily bad. Appearing to be authentic can also be a sign of being a sociopath.
Speaking of sociopaths, Stewart savaged Donald Trump, calling him “Fuckface von Clownstick”, and a “man-baby”:
There is also a good discussion of what’s wrong with our current politics.
I disagree with Stewart’s placing the blame on Democrats – the Dems (from Clinton to Obama) have been deliberately blocked by the Republicans, at every step, merely to block. There are clear differences offered by the parties – and it is up to us, the people, to read, compare, think and vote! We can’t blame the leaders when we ourselves spend no more time (in fact, less) than what we spend on tv. IMO.

Bravo. I’ve always said that the way to fight a man who criticizes you is to avoid addressing the criticism and hurl barnyard epithets back at him. Learned that in the fifth grade. Reason is for sissies.
So why did he not run? He is a celebrity and would win hands down.
His ego isn’t big enough. 🙁
