Movers & Shakers: Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart
How is it that, at times, a pair of Comedy Central talk show hosts seem to be the most sensible individuals when it comes to social and political issues in this country? Does anyone else find that disturbing? Don't get me wrong, I'm certainly a fan of Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart, but sometimes it seems they're the strongest and most outspoken of the liberal, left-wing party/movement. And that just isn't right. Sure, they can poke fun and saw the sort of outlandish things that a politician would certainly be reamed for, but it does some refreshing to have such articulate and intelligent individuals lay out what's really going on, without seeming to convolute the truth of the matter. Cutting through the BS, I love it.
