Thank you. With intermittent pauses for phone calls and random scheduled duties this will burn a good two hours.
The host is just not doing her job... they keep shifting topics and not resolving any of them. I liked where they were going with disability 'suddenly increasing' under Obama but they just started ranting about easy broad stuff.
Jon Stewart: -21pts
Bill O'Reilly: -25pts
Messy start... but Jon Stewart gets the first point.
+5 VK points to Jon Stewart
O'Reilly needs to get rid of the cards. It's really hard to take him seriously.
-1 VK point for O'Reily
-5 VK points for O'Reily
Fail. Bad shallow argument, bad recovery trying to switch from company to viewers...
-5 VK points for Jon
-1 VK point for Jon.
Bad execution and example, but a good answer.
Democracy with incentive to participate.
+1 VK point for Bill.
'The Government' can't run health care because they don't know anything about it, but 'The Government' can run the military because they understand it and have a tradition of it... I'm not penalizing him for being for or against any kind of health care, I'm penalizing him for being thick. He just repeats over and over again that his own definition of the government (Military and Politicians) can't run health care. The government can't run anything but a circus if I mean (Ringleaders and Clowns) when I say 'The Government'. The government is whoever is hired, elected, and appointed.
You could argue that even health care professionals don't do so well running government health care, but he didn't make it that far. He's not just articulating that poorly. He's being stupid. He thinks politicians and military people would be unfit to run it and we'd have to drag doctors from their houses and force them at gun point to run the country.
-20 points to Bill for being stupid.
"50% of americans live on BULLSHIT MOUNTAIN" on his own debate show.
"More of your viewers believe the president is Muslim than believe in evolution".
An hour later, the biggest problem in Political discourse is the exaggerative divisions...
-20 points to Jon for being stupid.
