Jon Stewart highlighted what a difference a president makes when it comes to cable pundits pontificating about democracy in the Middle East. Stewart noted that a "young, not-as-fat" Hannity and other right-wingers "couldn't do enough to promote democracy in the Middle East as long as it was done at the end of George Bush's gun. But as Middle Eastern countries choose leaders for themselves? Lordy, lordy the pearls can't be clutched enough!"
Stewart summed up: "I can't tell if these guys are clueless, cynical or in denial."
I'll vote "cynical," Jon.
All of the above plus a few other, less ladylike adjectives
But not (never) entirely: what a masterful takedown of hypocrisy and opportunism. Wow. Takes one’s breath away. Whew!
