'The Daily Show' on Fox News' Romney Defense: "Chaos on Bullsh*t Mountain"

In sum, according to the Fox News talking points -- who notes that President Obama is "the worst president in history," the tape from the fundraiser that has blown up Romney's campaign was 1) leaked by a left-wing magazine and/or Jimmy Carter's grandson and therefore invalid, and 2) it's not what he really meant to say, anyway, but 3) it was the factually accurate truth.

"You don't summit Bullshit Mountain unless you know your way around a turd or two."


Oh, and Letterman went on record to say that he "doesn't hate" Romney, as Romney suggested, because Romney has been on Leno more than on Letterman.

"I certainly don't hate Mitt because he's done -- because he's been on Leno's show more. I mean, why hate a guy who's suffered through that?"

    TDS writers and Stewart were on fire with Bullshit Mountain.

    I'm all for differing opinions, but I can't stand hypocrisy. I'm sure I've contradicted myself a few times, but holy moly, those examples are astounding. But I guess not really, as it happens daily with Fox News.

    Is it just me or has Jon Stewart gotten super attractive. Damn Jon, just keep telling like it is...

    oooo and when he gets all serious at the end of that rant? Damn.
    Jon's political commentary has got me all hot n bothered.

    Eh. We all know the Daily Show is on, DR.

    Like others have pointed out (I think, and I may have as well), Romney was just saying what Republicans already believe. It's amusing (still amusing, it may cease being amusing at some point) that Republicans are saying that videotaping Romney saying stuff he believes to a bunch of rich people is some kind of dirty trick (this from the people who attacked Vietnam veteran Kerry because he dared to protest the war he actually fought in, as opposed to the numerous Republican tools who managed to opt out of it). Because telling people what Republicans actually believe is the problem. Not WHAT they believe, but disseminating it so we can hear, in their own words, what kind of people they are.

    Republicans have long used "code words," and what Romney meant when he referred to the 47% was "welfare queens." His fan club full of old, white Social Security-collecting people (real Social Security for retired people, not that bullshit disability, which is clearly for lazy assholes who don't want to work) knows he doesn't mean them. He means black people, illegals, single mothers (black and white) and various other poors. You know, the people who are destroying this country.

    I believe you are referring to the rest of his speech that many did not care to neither listen to or cover. People are up in arms not simply because Mitt Romney sounded like an elitist ignorant twit, but because he had also sounded pretty much dismissive of the many voting blocs that make this country.

    Beyond the 47% that he has ridiculed as victims, leeches, and stay-at-home slobs looking only to live-off governmental handouts, he had also during that same speech dismissed Hispanic, and African American voters.

    What he had stated further on, to those who did not listen to the whole delivery:

    "Women are open to supporting me. But, we are having a much harder time with HISPANIC voters. And if the HISPANIC VOTING BLOC becomes as committed to the democrats as the AFRICAN AMERICAN VOTING BLOC has in the past, we’re in trouble as a party, AND AS A NATION.”

    Word for word.

    This of course follows his earlier statement that if he were Mexican, he would have an easier time getting elected. An elitist, arrogant, ignorant fool.

    I have no words.

    I believe the word you're looking for is douche bag.

    "Let me sum-up the message from Bullshit Mountain if I may, ..." Stewart keeps on getting better and better.

    While watching this yesterday, I kept on thinking "no way anyone believes Fox "News"", that is just too extreme, especially when they are showing the same Mitt Romney speech that everyone else was shown. Could such an irrelevant interpretation work on people?

    Then I remembered that conversation on journalistic ethics and integrity here on Pajiba... There were some harrowing studies on the effects Fox "News" has had on its loyal audience in the past couple of years:

    In 2010, a Stanford University survey found "more exposure to Fox News was associated with more rejection of many mainstream scientists’ claims about global warming, [and] with less trust in scientists".

    A 2011 Kaiser Family Foundation survey on U.S. misperceptions about health care reform found that Fox News viewers scored lower for FACTUAL knowledge than other news viewers.

    A 2010 Ohio State University study of public misperceptions about the so-called "Ground Zero Mosque" found that viewers who relied on Fox News were 66% more likely to believe incorrect rumors than those with "low reliance" on Fox News.

    In 2011, a study by Fairleigh Dickinson University found that New Jersey Fox News viewers were less well informed than people who DID NOT WATCH any news at all. The study employed objective questions, such as whether Hosni Mubarak was still in power in Egypt.

    Wonder what 2012 will be revealing about loyal Fox "News" viewers...

    The biggest turd in this story is still Romney, followed closely by Leno.

  • comfortable madness

    Come for the movie news, stay for the pictures of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Beckinsale, Milla Jovovich, Carla Gugino etc. But GTFO when the tired BS political commentary shows up.

  • birdgal

    And though some of those on Fox news may disagree, this is STILL a free country and hey, you aren't required to read these, so why are wasting your time complaining? (and yes, I realize I'm wasting my time telling you, so don't get your panties in a wad)

  • Snath

    You're a class act, Letterman. Even with all the infidelity.

  • Eve

    I loved that comment. Sounds like something I'd read here on Pajiba.
