American used to be a smart country. At some point in history, we believed in science, civil rights, and not fighting unjustifiable wars just because we hate brown people but love their oil. But we ceded that crown a long, long time ago. Now, the word ‘American’ — or more appropriately, ”Mercun’ — means a completely different thing to everyone around the world. On Thursday night’s edition of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, correspondents Jessica Williams and Samantha Bee took time out from their busy — and very intelligent — schedules to determine which news story best captures our nation’s essence as the judges of ‘The 2015 ‘Mercun Awards.’
And speak of dumb… Former Vice-President Dick Cheney recently makes an ironic assertion about the legacy and burden of President Obama’s administration regarding the Middle East. Detective Stewart is on the case!
USA! USA! USA!
