Jon Stewart Defends Bernie Sanders’ Sanity

Yes, Sen. Bernie Sanders has fly-away hair, but is he crazy?

The problem here isn’t that Bernie Sanders is a crazy-pants cuckoo bird, it’s that we have all become so accustomed to stage-managed, focus-group driven candidates that authenticity comes across as lunacy… If by ‘unusual’ you mean honestly representing himself and his beliefs, rather than playing a cynical political game….

— Jon Stewart

Watch this video to fully appreciate Jon Stewart’s delivery (and for a smile!)

    I’m really going to miss Jon Stewart.

  2. Jerry "Peacemaker"

    Can’t even remember the black guy’s name (Ahhh.. Shucky-Ducky!, Uze-becky-becky-stan..) but at one point he led!! the GOP presidential field.

      The Republican Party coughs up the weirdest candidates. Yet news networks tolerate them more graciously than the ‘too-serious’ Bernie Sanders!

    Good skit by Stewart. I liked the part where he began to meme the beltway view of Sanders as a left-wing radical, and then changed his mind after reviewing some of Sanders’ actual policy positions. Nice touch.

      Mine too… wonder what he’ll be doing when he leaves the Daily Show?

        I’m curious too. Maybe he’ll make more movies.
