The term “like a boss” is overused, but oh my word:
I’m sorry kids, but you need to know when to take “yes” for an answer. I had put off watching Napolitano’s appearance because I had seen nothing but b*tching and moaning in the blogosphere about how awful it was.
What are you guys talking about? First and most important, Napolitano took over that show like I have never seen anyone do–not even the actress from Hunger Games.
Second, it’s not as if Jon Stewart did his best to sabotage Napolitano; he is trying to be fair, explains that he knows Napolitano loves liberty etc., and just was flummoxed by Napolitano’s discussion of Lincoln.
Yes, there was a follow-up game show–which I didn’t watch because I can’t stand that new addition to the cast playing Abraham Lincoln–and I’m guessing the point of that bit was to discredit Napolitano’s views. But look: When they don’t give Peter Schiff time to explain, you guys complain about that. When they give Napolitano more time than Nancy Pelosi (?), you guys complain about that too.
If you are a Rothbardian anarcho-capitalist, you have extremely odd–freakish even–views in the eyes of most Americans. Judge Napolitano’s appearance on the Daily Show is an unqualified success, and Jon Stewart is a good guy for giving the Judge such a platform. Stewart even refers to him as his friend (when transitioning to the goofy game show), and makes sure his audience knows that he means it.
It’s going to be hard to make any progress in changing public opinion if “we” bite off everybody’s head who doesn’t agree 100% with our views, which I imagine for many of you, you yourself didn’t hold your entire adult life.
