Jon Stewart on the Tucson Memorial Service

(Just click on the "close" to get rid of the ad."

Jon Stewart mocks the partisian media criticism of the Tucson Memorial Service. Mediaite's description:

Stewart takes the high road and allows the words of his subjects damn themselves with partisan sniping completely at odds with what seemed to be the whole point of Obama’s speech.

Don't miss Stewart's blast of Michelle Malkin.

    Especially his take down on Malkin.  Why this woman is allowed to rant incoherently on TV is beyond me.

    once again from Stewart...that boy is good!

    FWIW, I thought the Native American blessing was the best part of the memorial...suprised and impressed.

    of Brit Hume and the Native American blessing, all I could think was "THAT was the thing you took away from the whole memorial service??"

    I liked it so much, how it riled the haters:)

    That and I find Native American spirituality much cooler than the big 3's versions.  Compare the opening blessing to Janet's bible reading for example...one moved and the other snoozed.

    I was most impressed by the poise, skill, and humility of Hernandez, the student intern -- but it's a close tie with the Pacqui prayer.  I've heard so many criticisms of the Native American blessing at the event, but those must be from  folks who have not heard before the wonderful, welcoming, and (to us) casual style of the First People.  Plus, I recognized in Dr. Gonzalez's blessing the paraphrasing of one of my favorites from the First People (or perhaps it is the phrasing of his nation, while I've heard others) on the four winds -- for him, the four doors.  

    I felt as if I were at a potlatch -- but then, I ought to have brought a gift.  Instead, we got the gift of a Pacqui prayer.  I almost could smell the sage that ought to have been burned as part of the blessing.  But there probably is some foolish fire code or something there against it.


    I don't get why people are criticizing it (none / 0) (#9)

    perhaps they know nothing of some of our states and culture?

    can be more despicable than Michelle Malkin, I don't know. Coulter tries, but Malkin gets the prize.
