Suck It, Small Town Values

I try to avoid doing this, but this Daily Show report from Wasilla about “The Real America”is pretty amazing:

This is a great video showing the hypocrisy of the Republicans. But seeing how upset and angry Jon Stewart was about being called anti-American was even better. If only "real" reporters had the guts to call bullshit on this issue.

Funny. Wasilla is an artless town.

Really poignant moment at the end when they close with footage of the New York City firefighters presumably during 9-11.

Hilarious, wonderful. Also, Jason Jones should kiss me.

Listening to that fat piece of shit try to explain how Wasilla Fucking Alaska represents the true spirit of 9/11, not godless cities like New York, is just about the most infuriating thing I've ever seen. They did a good job rebutting him; I would have just smashed my 128-ounce beer mug on his skull.

when jason jones was walking through a field of brush during the credits, and said they "grow pizza here", and arrived at a pizza hut, i kept laughing well into colbert report.

Watch the entire episode! John goes a little beyond his usual disbelief/irritation and lets loose a little, kinda reminiscent of his appearance on CNN's crossfire a couple years ago. In the closing comments John talks about a performance he did over the weekend at North Eastern. Apparently after hearing Palin's douchey pander about real Americans versus "city livin' queers" (paraphrase) he said "Fuck You [Palin]." He corrects himself and apologizes for directing it specifically at Palin. He meant to direct it at all of those out there that are preaching divisive politics with a nice subtle "Fuck all y'all"

Funniest line was Jason responding to "meth capital of Alaska" with "MATH CAPITAL! WHOO!"

"We don't DO 'social services' in Wasilla", is pretty much ALL you need to know...

My ex is from Wasilla. Nothing good comes from there.

Posted by Original Monique | October 21, 2008 2:13 PM

OK, who here believes that tattooed guy has ever laid a woman half as attractive as the subject of his tatts without paying for it?

We're held hostage to small town small minds!

Its legal to have sex with 16 yr olds there. That makes it one of the greatest places in the country.

that was a nice echo outside Lowes

all the big box crap that destroyed whatever authenitc Wasilla ever was happened on Palin's watch. the only job of Wasilla's mayor is to bend over for developers.

Another of the increasingly common instances in which the jokes are less funny than their subjects.

Magneto was right.

#8 Based on the Alaskans I've met in the nursing home and hospital. Yes they are. Especially the ones from Wasilla.

But what does John Bailo think?

Posted by K | October 21, 2008 3:46 PM

After a quick sampling - I think that my ass tastes like ice cream!

Posted by John Bailo | October 21, 2008 4:09 PM

That mayor couldn't have done a better self-parody if she had tried.

Oh, how I long for the day (soon!) when Caribou Barbie will rejoin her Wasilla inbred brethren ...she fits right in.

Posted by blackhook | October 21, 2008 4:38 PM

Why, if I didn't know better, I'd say that someone was sock-puppeting John Bailo.

Posted by Paul Constant | October 21, 2008 6:01 PM

Yeah, this Daily Show was particularly wonderful.

"Fuck all y'all!"

Find the clip of the quiz that Jon did in the next segment where you could figure out if you were from Real America or Fake America.
