This is 50 minutes long, but I think it’s absolutely essential viewing.
Stephen Colbert quite obviously plays a character named “Stephen Colbert” on The Colbert Report, and I think it’s quite interesting to realize that, in many respects, Jon Stewart plays a character named “Jon Stewart” on The Daily Show. Every so often, like here, or in the Crossfire interview a few years ago, he drops the jester act and lets you see the very serious, passionate, and concerned person behind the comedian.
Take the time for this. It’s fantastic.
Really enjoyed that a lot. Thanks so much to linking to it!
that was excellent!
Thanks for pointing this out. He mentions a couple of times that the problem is not Democrats vs. Republicans, but corruption. But he doesn’t run with that. I wonder if his views on political corruption are similar to Larry Lessig’s.
