29 September 2009: The Daily Show on water discovered on the Moon. And Ron Paul.

Thursday, October 01, 2009

Just to show how big this news is, it even made the Daily Show last night. You can see the video just below. Actually, it starts out with the Moon and then kind of gets on to another subject, but I won't spoil it.

Political HumorRon Paul Interview


The other interesting thing about last night's show is that the guest was Ron Paul. Those on the Ron Paul Forums were very happy about the interview and once again Jon Stewart did a fantastic job.

One sad thing about the current political situation is that the original Ron Paul movement has been co-opted by a large group of simple anti-Obama big government and pro-foreign intervention Republicans, making the movement started in 2007 into a a laughingstock, full of Obama=Hitler posters and the like.

The thing to understand about Ron Paul is that even though he is intellectually consistent, he nevertheless still places more importance on some issues of his than others. During the primary campaign for example when asked what the first thing he would do as President would be, the answer was always that he would bring the troops home. From Iraq, from Afghanistan, from Germany, Japan, everywhere. Those that still believe the original reasons for the war in Iraq to be valid (Dick Cheney-type Republicans) therefore simply have nothing in common with him. Let's not forget as well that during the primaries these people were the ones that were calling Ron Paul a fake Republican, a long shot, unpresidential, etc.
