In response to Hello’s comments (which I realise are said with a smirk..) ..Jon Stewart gave an interview to Ian Woods a while ago. Woods asked who he would prefer elected, as if Bush goes – he’ll have no one to take the pee out of.. He replied with something similar to …do you really believe I’m thinking about comedy value over the safety of my country and my sanity?
He was asked again on CNN’s Crossfire the other day – the answer this time was that if Kerry’s administration is as absurb as this one.. he’ll gladly take the mick in the same way they do to Bush.. although it’ll be tough for Prez Kerry et al to be quite so outrageous.
Hello+Oct 18 2004, 12:19 AM–>(Hello @ Oct 18 2004, 12:19 AM) If George Bush does lose the election then he will give quite a few impressionists/comedians a lot less work to do. They’d have to find someone else to talk about.
I don’t think comedians ever have any trouble finding politicians to take the P*** out of.
Hey, Kristian, you mean the Hyperpower can’t reach outer space?!!! See you there. Plus the cat if that’s ok.
Seriously, I think Bush and his appalling cohorts Cheney, Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld etc will all be back but really hope that I’m wrong. (My french teacher, poor bloke, is 50 and claims that if they win again, he’ll lose all his – considerable – longstanding faith in humanity; I’m off to buy him some good vin rouge in anticipation…it’s hard to understand the US voter, that’s for sure). The Bush administration, if re-elected, will menace Iran next, having already made the US more unpopular in the world than it has ever been, and played straight into the hands of the terrorist crowd – who certainly now don’t lack recruits either. That lot want the world split into two camps and Dubya’s certainly on that wavelength. I can’t remember a more dangerous world (nope, can’t remember 1961 if anyone’s cheeky enough to ask). And would Blair continue to cosy up to Bush if other M.E. states were menaced?
I get p**sed off at Ralph Nader. I understood why he stood last time. No-one thought Bush would be off to war with such alacrity…but to stand this time and split the anti Bush vote is unacceptable. Step no 1 to help the world out of this crazy mess has to be to get rid of those conservative, God-bothering, extreme right wing hawks and get some intelligence and sanity back into the White House.
Is Kerry any good? Who knows, but he can’t surely be as bad as this lot.
I hear the NY Times has come out for Kerry.. ..the Chicago Sun Times, I believe came out for Bush – Chicago being a democrat town usually.
My main thrust is.. anyone know of any Murdoch papers declaring yet? Will they? Do they? ..it did make me laugh that Bill O Reilly said he was a geniune undecided still. oh rofl. ..but then again, maybe – if he’s waiting for instructions from King Rupe..?
Thoughts, all? ta ke v
PS – I agree with Kristian’s last comments & wholehearted agree with EE. (see DC thread!)
