21 posts | 28 read | 8 to read
The host of the award-winning humorous news program offers tongue-in-cheek insight into American democracy with coverage of such topics as the republican qualities of ancient Rome, the antics of our nation's founders, and the ludicrous nature of today's media.

From 2004 when we thought we were in deep trouble as a country. Oh boy, have things gotten worse. I enjoyed the audio until the very end when I discovered it was the abridged version. Grrrrr... now I‘ll sit and wonder what I missed out on.

L_auren I had that happen and I think for older books they did that if the author went off script at all. I‘ve only seen it on books from the early 200s 2y
MicheleinPhilly HA! The good old days. 2y
Suet624 @L_auren I like it when they go off script. 😀 2y
L_auren @Suet624 I think that‘s all abridges means here :) worry not 2y

Oh Jon, #ifiwasyourgirlfriend (and you weren‘t already married to someone else) I would be smarter and laugh more. Plus you would totally understand if I would rather stay home and read on a Friday night. #rocktober

I was cleaning out my closet and found this amazing t-shirt from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart circa 2004. Still relevant or more relevant now? Sad to think about, but also, man, can we talk about how cool I was as a teenager?

#marchintoreading day 22 - #audiobooks

Put my cd copy of this one up in storage, and seeing as it's literally the only audio book I own, this will have to suffice.

I tend to look at audio books as the equivalent of watching movies on tv rather than in theaters: a perfectly fine means of consumption, just not exactly how the work was conceived. (No shade at home viewings either, as I myself haven't made it out to theaters since Arrival).

It is perhaps a sign of the strength of our republic that so few people feel the need to participate. That must be the reason.

Oh Jon Stewart. How I do adore you.

This book was fun, funny, and exactly what I needed.

Day 11 of #augustphotochallege is books and politics. While I do have several e-books on feminism, these two were all I could find on my shelves that fit the challenge. I generally like my politics funny. 😃

Gayan I love both of these books. Bill Maher is my Spirit Animal. 3y
