No one punctures windbags and points out spin like Jon Stewart. I wish he'd do it (more) in a bi-partisan way, but he's got his POV and he's entitled to it...
I post this because
1. It's funny
2. It illustrates what I was talking about below- the positions we take on issues (here it's Republicans, but Democrats do it equally) depend on party affiliation and switch back and forth depending on the party of those making the charges and defending against them.
It shows how ridiculous and absolutely unprincipled most in the system have become, and how most will simply repeat exactly what they think they are supposed to say at the moment.
I'll say one other thing- Barack Obama impressed me with his performance at the Saddleback forum. The answers he gave were thoughtful and nuanced and one could tell he was actually thinking about them- yes- there were some "talking point" moments- but for the most part, you got the feeling he was actually considering what he said.
McCain, was the opposite. Talking points were all he gave. Short, sound-bite snippets.
Of course, who you thought did better there is probably dependent mostly on who you've already decided to vote for...
