and certainly don't think he's particularly intelligent.
yeah if someone doesn't share your views they must not be very smart.
Thanks for your presumption, but no. Actually, I'm thinking of when he invited Cat Stevens (or whatever name he goes by now) to his Rally to Restore Sanity, despite the fact that Stevens is a Muslim fanatic who supported the fatwa on Salman Rushdie for writing a novel. When this issue was raised, Stewart ducked it.
Or the time that he brought on an atheist organization's representative on who was protesting the USPS's plans to make a postal stamp for Mother Teresa, and then mocked him repeatedly using the most elementary sarcasm, while refusing to let the guy elaborate on why Mother Teresa is an over-praised figure.
So, yea, my assessment on Stewart's intelligence has nothing to do with his or my own political views, and everything to do with his demonstrated ignorance (which can't be said about Bill Maher) Try harder next time.
ETA: The laugh track on Scooby-Doo elicited more genuine laughter than the audience at a Stewart show. I've never seen a comedian, or 'satirist,' have to so blatantly cue his audience into laughing
