QOTD: "Mr. Stewart is the host of a fake news show, the genesis of which probably was a conversation that went approximately like this: Brother-in-Law: “There’s nothing funny on Saturday Night Live except the ‘Weekend Update.’ They should really just do that for the whole show.” Jon Stewart: “Hey…!” Mr. Stewart is among the lowest forms of intellectual parasite in the political universe, with no particular insights or interesting ideas of his own, reliant upon the very broadest and least clever sort of humor, using ancient editing techniques to make clumsy or silly political statements sound worse than they are and then pantomiming outrage at the results, the lowbrow version of James Joyce giving the hero of Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man the unlikely name of Stephen Dedalus and then having other characters in the novel muse upon the unlikelihood of that name. His shtick is a fundamentally cowardly one, playing the sanctimonious vox populi when it suits him, and then beating retreat into “Hey, I’m just a comedian!” when he faces a serious challenge. It is the sort of thing that you can see appealing to bright, politically engaged 17-year-olds.

...The thing is, people actually get their news from his show. Fans, many of whom cannot quite spell his name, swear that the program is “more accurate than any other news show.” Ignore, for the moment, the judgment exhibited in that quotation and focus on the word “other.” In the minds of many of his admirers — and in the minds of those news-site editors who report on Mr. Stewart’s fake news as part of the real news — there is no substantive difference between what Mr. Stewart does and what, e.g., Ezra Klein does (“Ezra Klein Destroys Romney,” “Ezra Klein Destroys David Brooks,” “Ezra Klein Destroys Republican Opposition to Temporary Payroll Tax Cut,” etc.) because for the Left the point of journalism is not to criticize politics or to analyze politics but to be a servant of politics, to “destroy” such political targets as may be found behind one’s crosshairs. For the Left, the maker of comedy and the maker of graphs perform the same function. It does not matter who does the “destroying,” so long as it gets done." --Kevin D. Williamson

Millennials can be counted on to resist counterfeits and the GOP can do it. Counterfeit government, counterfeit health care, counterfeit nanny state oversight, counterfeit RINO's, counterfeit growth and opportunities - the list is long. Show them the genuine article and their lust for freedom will take root.
The era of "fast food" should be brought to a close. Mooch and Jug Ears are out there telling us what to eat but baby, it's not home cooked. Been to the Doctor lately? Goobermint is turning Medicine into fast food by ignoring attention to detail. Learners are drawing blood and leaving huge hematomas, x-ray technicians are cranking out pictures but technique is unacceptable, Doctors recommend procedures but don't follow up properly, the list is long, but these are the counterfeits they think they can groom us to accept.
Elections are coming, we can hope for a fire storm, a "cleansing of the temple" that will see Politicians fleeing Washington because The People decided to make room for the genuine article. In America, that could happen.
