Late Night Humor

Jon Stewart puts up clips of President Obama and former president George W. Bush talking about Iraq -- and finds surprisingly little difference.

And Jimmy Fallon, via U.S. News, says: "Here's some good news. Barack Obama announced he's bringing home troops from Iraq. That's right. Unfortunately, he couldn't get them direct flights home. They have a two-year layover in Afghanistan."

Thank-you, Jon Stewart. I would have liked to have been able to vote for you for president. I know we have our hands full with all sorts of domestic problems but I'm amazed at how silent everyone is over this. Kool-aid is kool-aid. If George Bush would have announced the identical plan, there would have been justifiable rage over what was taking him so long and do we really need to babysit another election and what is the definition of stability if we can't call it stable now. Another three years? (At least, according to Gates who has said the Iraqis can always agree to extend the agreement.) Three years is half again as much as the six years we've already been there. At what point does this become Obama's war?
