Daily Show – Jon Stewart and the ‘Wonka Message’ to the GOP’s right wing firebrands

Jon Stewart is well to the Left on the political spectrum. As such, we disagree with a lot of what he considers enlightened policy and politics. However, the shenanigans of the right wing of the Republican Party (and the leadership which has been coopted by it) have made Stewart and most Independent voters and even moderate Republicans/conservatives kindred spirits.

We have quite a bit more to say below on the many ways the GOP has looked bad and performed worse in the manner in which it handled the current budget confrontation the Democrats. The Stewart clip is worth watching for two aspects that resonate with many US voters. The first is his sense of exasperation… that is shared by everyone outside of the far right wing of the Republican Party. The second is Stewart’s naturally funny delivery on such an otherwise troubling topic.

After that we are going to launch into a vigorous dissection of the myriad ways in which the GOP leadership being seduced by the siren call of a government shutdown confrontation is totally counterproductive for a Republican Party that had shown some real gains right into Mr. Obama’s re-election last year. Really quite tragic for all the moderate conservatives out there.
