Comedy and the truth

I've got to be honest. It's getting harder and harder to take this journalism thing seriously when usually, the people closest to the truth are comedians.

For instance, and this is what made me start thinking about this again, we've got Sen. Dick Durbin making yet another reference to Nazis this past week. Gallons of ink have been spilled in reaction to the Illinois democrat's comments, but I think, once again, Jon Stewart of Comedy Central's Daily Show has it right. Check out the video.

Hat tip for this one goes to the Mudville Gazette.
