The greatest show in the world

(Unfortunately WordPress won’t let me embed this amazing piece. So here’s the link:

For a great while there will never be such an amazing declaration of democracy as I’ve just seen on The Daily Show. It’s a bit difficult to show support for such a show. The Daily Show is by far the greatest thing that was happened to America since motherf***ing Bush took over.

To be able to watch, albeit with a small lag of a day, the program from afar, in my case my hometown of Rio, Brazil, is to able to relish the possibility of keeping in touch with the most influencial and powerful political system in the world through the eyes and minds of the most talented and articulate group of individuals the United States has to offer. There will never be a show where so much is said in such a blatantly obvious and sarcastic way. The truth hurts. But The Daily Show makes us laugh while it hurts.

And it hurts me. All that has been done to the world through the sick mind of Bush and his army of evildoers. All that the amazing country of the United States has let itself become. A tiranny of the grandest kind. A country with no morals that preaches morality. A country that knows no boundaries in order to achieve their goals. That knows no limits.

America has become a cesspool of hate. A disgusting nation founded on principles not held. A country where gentlemen sought to achieve grandeur and has, for the past eight years, been pillaged and stripped of all its meaning. America is dying.

Thank fuck for a show like The Daily Show. If McCain wins this election that slight glimpse of hope, that inexplicable desire I have inside me to believe in a greater America will forever be lost. Every time I see Obama trying to achieve the monumental task of writing new and amazing chapters of our brief but intricate and rich history I think there’s a better place we call all look out for.

And I’m sure The Daily Show will be there to poke fun at the inevitable, but to present the critique and the smart journalism that is so flagrantly absent in America.
