Just got done watching
Captain Hope Obama on the Daily Show; which I haven’t really watched in years, and for some reason I seem to recall it being a lot more funny that it was this time.
Honestly, it really wasn’t that interesting, because everyone there, including Jon Stewart was drinking the Obamaide from the punch bowl of hope. The thing that struck me about the whole interview was that you do have to give Obama credit for one thing, the man knows how to play to his base. He was very smooth, laughed at all the right moments, had a couple of good one-liners himself, it’s no wonder that people are constantly fawning over a platform built on insubstantial claims of “hope” and “change”.
I think the most frustrating thing for me is that people can’t see through this guy – I mean, it’s obvious that Hillary is a harpy, and that McCain is kind of angry, but how come no one is calling bullshit on Obama yet? He’s making promises that sound like the sort of things you’d tell a small child to keep them quiet so they don’t bother you while you’re “doing grown-up stuff”.
