Leave it to Jon Stewart to tell her like it is:
Speaking to a college audience in Boston, Mass. Friday, "Daily Show" host Jon Stewart used his stand-up routine to respond to Sarah Palin's comments about "pro-America" parts of the country, shedding the profanity restrictions that govern his Comedy Central show.
"She said that small towns, that's the part of the country she really likes going to because that's the pro-America part of the country. You know, I just want to say to her, just very quickly: fuck you," Stewart said to raucous applause.
"He (McCain) made an interesting vice presidential choice.
I like the woods...I just don't know if I would pull my vice president out of the woods randomly. She came out again today. She was talking to a small town, she said that small towns, that's the part of the country she really likes going to because that's the pro-America part of the country.
I've never seen someone with a greater disparity between how cute they sound when they're saying something and how terrible what they're saying is.
"Don't ya know, Obama, by golly, he just is a terrorist? What? Oh, you know, he just, gosh, kills babies, you know."
I'm so over the idea that only small-town America is the heart and soul. Small-town America is fine, but it's the same as cities. Cities are just a lot of towns piled on top of each other in one place.
They have this whole thing that somehow we can write off entire swaths of the country, that we are somehow...I get it. You know, New York City wasn't good enough for [expletive] Osama bin Laden, it better be good enough for you.
I can't take it anymore. After eight years of this divisiveness, we're back to this idea that only small-town America is the real America. I get it. I'm from New York. We have a lot of gay people. But homosexuals don't have sodomy on Russian flags.
That's pretty much what I think every time I hear someone talk about "real America" and "real Americans": Fuck you. We are all Americans, equally, regardless of our political opinions. The Founding Fathers are rolling over in their graves at the notion that political dissent disqualifies one as a real American, especially the notion that small town America is real America, since the founders were from the big cities of their time!
America is ABOUT freedom to dissent, always has been, that's why they made that the first amendment. If you are against that, well, you do the math.
