Nation-Building >> Dean gets his first mention on the Daily Show! | return to front page

"America has two great dominant strands of political thought - conservatism, which, at its very best, draws lines that should not be crossed; and progressivism, which, at its very best, breaks down barriers that should never have been erected." -- Bill Clinton, Dedication of the Clinton Presidential Library, November 2004

Dean gets his first mention on the Daily Show!

posted by annatopia at Monday, May 05, 2003 permalink View blog reactions
Hey West Coasters, don't miss tonight's Daily Show (you've got about 35 minutes)! Tonight's opening monologue fixated on the debate, with Dean and Kerry (mostly Dean, thank you very much!) getting major play. TDS remarked on the Dean-Kerry spat, and showed Howard's segment where he suggested Kerry question him directly rather than through his lackeys. Then TDS went on to parody a "Dean-Kerry Smile-Off". They also showed Sharpton's Kool-Aid zinger, Kucinich "yelling", and Lieberman's tiresome national security schpiel. Jon Stewart compared Kerry to Lurch (perhaps he reads the Dean blog, heh heh), and Stephen Colbert called Lieberman "the candidate for people who want to vote for Bush, but don't think he's Jewish enough."

As soon as TDS posts a video link, I'll update this post for those who don't have cable or missed the segment.

About Nation-Building

Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
