Jon Stewart’s Closing Rally Speech: “If We Amplify Everything, We Hear Nothing”: “Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear wrapped up this afternoon with one of its only serious moments—Jon Stewart’s 12-minute closing address—that was also its most important/poignant one.”
This was a great debate. It’s get’s heated in Pt. 2 so be forewarned. I side with Jon on this. “Those who want to trade freedom for security deserve neither.” — Ben Franklin
Great apology for the Truman comment.

Stewart seen as winner in showdown with Cramer – CNN.com:
“‘People want to see a lot of the financial gurus on a shish kabob, being skewered,’ Seaman said. ‘It’s really important to hold people accountable, and as we saw last night, Jon Stewart is a bit of a wild card, so if you aren’t living up to expectations, he may call you out.'”
Which is exactly why I watch the show. I need that “powerful tool of illumination.”
While I think Jim Cramer shouldn’t be the only face of the problem, I do think this total roasting is completely on the money. I’m reminded of the Crossfire roasting he did years ago. When will they learn? Here it is in unedited glory.
