Truth in Advertising


Why I love The Daily Show, reason #312:

This billboard, on display just outside the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport -- just in time for the arrival of the delegates attending next week's Republican National Convention.

And this is why we don't have a Colbert/Stewart ticket...because they would have fucking won fair and square, and probably could have done a better job than most out there. (Nothing against Obama, if anything this would be aimed more at the "Rich White Oligarchs!")

That is freaking amazing.
I wonder if some of them will laugh, and take the secret of their laughter to their grave.

Stewart rocks! Thanks for posting this, made my morning.

Just more proof that The Daily Show provides the most salient political commentary on TV. Period.

I for one welcome our new rich white oligarch overlords.

...Although I would prefer a "Stewbert" ticket to a "Jobama" ticket.

Typical commie terrorist loving American haters. Why didn't Commie Central also put up a billboard exactly like this outside of the Denver Airport?

Because they are commie terrorist loving America haters that's why.

Hey anonymous, just a wild guess, but could be the reason they didn't put a billboard exactly like this in Denver is because the presumptive nominee isn't, you know, white. Come to think of it, he's not rich either, according to the Republican nominee.

Where exactly? Which road is this billboard on? I'm guessing it's heading toward St. Paul from the airport but on which route?

Chez said...

Oh come on - don't be too hard on him. "Commie Central?" That's comedy gold.

drater said...

I have to admit, that was a nice touch.

I've got to agree that the Daily Show would be a lot cooler if they'd done it for BOTH conventions.

Besides, the GOP is a super-easy target right now. Talk about kicking somebody while they're down.

The Daily Show: more factually accurate than the majority of the "serious" media. Seriously.

It wouldn't have made as much sense at the Democratic National Convention.

I'm sure they could have found something equally amusing for the Democrats! Or maybe they aren't doing a billboard because they are actually allowed inside to make fun of them!

What a beautiful thing.

Do you know what any of this means? Or is it just your virtual spleen being splattered all over Webland because you can't form an articulate sentence?

Welcome to idiocracy: intelligence not required.

The Russian "commies" ARE the new oligarchs.

Alex said...

I think the reason that no billboard exists outside of the Denver airport is because Denver objects to having words such as "Pussy" and "Grow a Nutsack" on their billboards.

They won't laugh, heatherhansma, because they won't know what "oligarch" means. They're rich and they're white, but they're not too bright.
