The first half of this episode of the Daily Show is awesome. It’s quite sad, however, that Jon Stewart is the only one out there saying such simple and accurate things. The media in this country is so broken and I’m not sure how to fix it. The blogosphere and social media are having a huge impact, no doubt. Mrs. Obama seems quite sincere, by the way, never mind her husband’s inadequate and often harmful policies. I imagine there are many white people out there who really don’t like the idea of a progressive black woman being higher, much higher on the social and economic order than they are.
