No Virginia Tech on the Daily Show or the Colbert Report

This will be brief: a salute to Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert (or should I say a tip of the hat?) for steering clear of the Virginia Tech shootings. Sometimes if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. It was only when the fallout occurred over the loopholes in the gun law that they responded, staying true to their ethics of afflicting the comfortable, rather than afflicting the afflicted as the MSM is so wont to do.

Hey Ann... s'Bill here. Actually, Jon did make a comment about it in an interview with some guy while talking about Iraq, something to the effect that "Here in America we spent a great deal of time processessing this tragedy, and greiving, &c." "but In Iraq you have an event like this on a daily basis... How can you deal with that?"...

The clip in question is mentioned in this Moyers/Stewart interview available here... http://onegoodmove.org/1gm/1gmarchive/2007/04/bill_moyers_jon.html
