"Republican consultant and strategist, Noelle Nikpour: “Scientists are scamming the American people right and left for their own ‘finansual’ gain.”

It’s all too obvious: [The Daily Show clip, Science: What's It Up To?]"

World of Class Warfare - Warren Buffett vs. Wealthy Conservatives - The Daily Show with Jon Stewart - 08/18/11 - Video Clip | Comedy Central
"Warren Buffett's op-ed is a thoughtful treatise on the advantages the super-wealthy currently enjoy at the hands of the tax code, or to put it another way, "class warfare."<br />
<br />
"World of Class Warfare - The Poor's Free Ride Is Over: The government could raise $700 billion by either taking half of everything earned by the bottom 50% or by raising the marginal tax rate on the top two percent."<br />

Jon Stewart on the cushy lives of teachers - Boing Boing
"As always, Mr Stewart puts it into perspective -- the same people who object to limiting the tax-funded bonuses of bailed out bankers because it would violate their contracts say that teachers' contracts should be torn up and their benefits slashed."

The Daily Show: 'Glenn Beck Has Nazi Tourette's' (VIDEO) | TPM LiveWire
"Daily Show correspondent Lewis Black was surprised last night that Glenn Beck had criticized those who have compared Arizona's immigration law to Nazi Germany. "This is a guy," said Black, "who uses more swastika props and video of the Nuremberg rallies than The History Channel."

Education - "End Times" for the NYTimes - and for Schooling?
"If you didn't see Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones' segment on the decline of the New York Times - called "End Times" - it's not only hilarious and, in an end-of-an-era sort of way, sad. It's also fascinating when watched with education in mind. Watch it yourself, and see if it doesn't lead to parallels in your own thinking between newspapers and textbooks, news-bloggers and classroom teachers, hallowed institutions like the NYTimes and their ivy-covered cousins in academe. Then read Wikinomics co-author Don Tapscott's "The Impending Demise of the University" on, or his request for reader feedback on the same post at HuffPo, and ask yourself: what won't be brought down by the internet? Watching the Daily Show segment makes me wish some satirist would take on Harvard - or plain old traditional public education k-12, for that matter - with the same wit unleashed on the NYTimes. Interesting times."
