Some funny, some not

Bill Bennett is on the Daily Show right now defending the gay marriage amendment. Sigh. Oh, the pandering. I think Jon is giving him the smack-down. He reversed the slippery slope on the gambling virtue dude. Brilliant.

There is some good news on that. Here is a Baptist minister from freaking Alabama disagrees.
"We have some serious issues before us here in Alabama, but gay marriage is not one of them. It is a wedge issue, a whip designed not to inspire voters to vote for better government, but to frighten voters into electing a savior.

And the last time I checked, that job was already taken."

Well said.


Speaking of Jon Stewart, he had a rather biting criticism for our administration.
The Washington Monthly: "Stewart also quipped: 'Thomas Jefferson once said: 'Of course the people don't want war. But the people can be brought to the bidding of their leader. All you have to do is tell them they're being attacked and denounce the pacifists for somehow a lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.' I think that was Jefferson. Oh wait. That was Hermann Goering. Shoot.'"


Now for the funny. Watched Last Comic Standing tonight. Was looking for NBA finals--even with Mark Cuban--only to find out it isn't until Thursday. Oh well.

Back to the lame comedy show. Watchable only because there are occasionally truly funny moments. Of course, most of those don't advance to the next lame round.

Funniest line tonight about stupid racists.
Supid Racists, either the Mexicans are too lazy or they are taking all your jobs. Can't have it both ways!
