Monday was the earliest opportunity they got to comment on last Thursday’s debate and they did a good job of combining humor with political analysis.
In part 1, Jon Stewart chronicles the remarkable performance of ‘Crazy Old Uncle’ Joe Biden.
In part 2 he points how you can know when your side has won the debate is when your opponents start criticizing your style. A point of curiosity about something that I am not in a position to judge. The Fox News stable of commentators seemed to think that women would be turned off by Biden’s aggressiveness and demeanor. Apart from the fact that any sweeping generalization concerning half the population is certainly wrong, is there even a germ of truth in such an assertion?
And in part 3, he did what he clearly enjoys most and does best, and that is rip into the media for their pathetic performance in general.
