So this video has been making its rounds on BuzzFeed lately:
“Why would you say that?” I love how smug and condescending he is without even trying.
Oh, Fox News, I will link to you only in YouTube videos and Google cache links just because it gives me great joy to deny you ad revenue.
I first saw Reza Aslan on The Daily Show during the Green Revolution. I thought, “Who is the gorgeous gorgeous Iranian man?”
Reza Aslan is a pretty big deal in academic circles and probably the biggest name in religious studies, and definitely Islam, off the top of my head. The only time I’ve seen him get flustered is when he debated the relationship of violence and Islam with Sam Harris.
It turns out Aslan is 41 and married, but… would still tap. Mmmmm, articulate men with symmetrical faces and terminal degrees.

Rick Santorum awkwardly pretending he’s not suing one of the sponsors of this debate.
Not only is Google-Fox an awkward partnership, but Rick Santorum, who seemingly forgot how freedom of speech works, is in the middle of litigating Google because his children can’t Google search his name.
Mitt Romney: “My book has absolutely no lies and has been ratified by Massachusetts, our Founding Fathers, and Joseph Smith. But nice try, Rick Perry, nice try.”
Rick Perry: “I have no articulate rebuttal to Mr. Great Hair, because I have the debate skills of a drunk marmoset. I would, however, like to see Cain and Gingrich mate and make their lovechild my VP.”
Jon Huntsman: “I can prove I’m less of an asshole this round!”
Herman Cain: “We can fix everything because everything is broken! Just use the Chilean model (minus the trapped miners).”
Rick Santorum: “I forgot what DADT was.”
Michelle Bachmann: “I forgot that Ronald Reagan actually had a lower approval rating than Obama has right now.”
Ron Paul: “I’m only relevant in straw polls!”
Newt Gingrich: “I’m only relevant in the 90s!”
Gary Johnson: “Since Tim Pawlenty is out I claim his ‘Who the Fuck is That Guy?” title!”
FOX Crowd: “Where’s the tail-gate party for racist homophobes?”
Read the live-blog from the last debate, the CNN/Tea Party debate, here or my annotated transcript from the September Politico debate here.
Read the real, full transcript at Politisite. Or watch TPM’s Debate in 100 Seconds video. Some of the jokes here (like the Cain-Gingrich lovechild joke) will make more sense if you do.

Once again, Jon Stewart, without aiming for that particular end, defends his controversial title as the most the trusted name in news.
I’ve seen his stand-up and he’s not the funniest guy. (During the writer strike, I think Colbert outshined him on comedic wit.) But Stewart’s an expert on pointing out hypocrisy, and, because I can think of no other words, so very very right.
He then goes back to The Daily Show to accuse Fox of airing a heavily edited version:
And he later corrects his mistake that all of Fox News viewers are the most misinformed to most of Fox News viewers are the among the misinformed, with the exception of a couple shows. Politifact readers backlash to the “false” verdict.

(If someone can tell me how to embed these Daily Show videos without upgrading my wordpress account, that’d be great. Copy and pasting the site’s given embed code into the html box doesn’t work.)
