Condoleezza Rice: Did she deserve Jon Stewart’s vulgarity?
Jon Stewart, not to be confused with John Stewart or John Stuart, is the host and star of the Daily Show, a fake news show that spoofs society and governments and important people. As with most talk show and news shows, President Bush is key fodder for the fire of satirical comedy.

Stewart is an intelligent man sired by two well educated and intelligent people. He has a bright wife and I’m sure that their two children are smart little wimps. He was raised in a community full of intelligent people. (I know that Jon’s wife, once a veterinary technician, is bright because he would never marry a dullard. )
Somehow Jon Stewart, born Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz on November 28 1962, developed a base and pooped mouth. Maybe he got it on the soccer field when he attended Williams and Mary. He is also capable of obscenity, often a focus of his show. I guess these features, obscenity and profanity, and, if I could invent a new word for infantile language poopmouthity, appeal to the mind set of many of those who watch the show.
I often watch the show. When it gets too filthy, I switch the channel and I’m sure that many other folks do too. There are limits.
But poopmouthity and obscenity are one thing. Downright degradation of character is another. I’ve finally got to my subject, the obscenity and vulgar presentation of Jon Stewart toward Condoleezza Rice.
Condoleezza Rice is an intelligent and well-educated woman with talent and experience that made her President Bush’s choice for Secretary of State. She is a hard-working and diligent person and not a sex object for Jon Stewart to debase. She does not need Jon Stewart’s service because she is childless.

Jon Stewart has gone too far. He needs to apologize to Condoleezza Rice. He also needs to follow the rules of decency in his public presentations.
Did Bob Hope show such behavior on television: How abut Red Skelton or Jack Benny? These comic geniuses where able to insinuate without gross insultation .
Now that word is in the dictionary!
The gap between these greats and Jon Stewart will have to be narrowed if Jon Stewart expects to achieve their status. As big as Benny Hill? Not a chance!
