The Very Smart Jon Stewart, Who Tells You How Much Smarter He Is Than Bush Every Night

From Drudge:

FLASHBACK: Stewart, during commencement address at the College of William & Mary, Williamsburg, blasted Bush and war: 'We declared war on terror. We declared war on terror - it's not even a noun, so, good luck. After we defeat it, I'm sure we'll take on that bastard ennui'...

"Terror" isn't a noun? When did this happen? I thought nouns were persons, places, or things, and terror would seem to be a "thing."

Main Entry: ter·ror Pronunciation: 'ter-&r Function: noun

Hmmmm... Merriam-Webster doesn't seem to have gotten the Stewart update on terror's new classification as a, what, precisely? What the fuck does he think "terror" is? An adverb? A conjunction? A... gerund of some sort, perhaps?

Fucking moron.

There are a lot of dumb people in the world. There's no point in insulting them, generally, just as there's no point in saying that someone is smelly or has a spooky-tooth somewhere in their mouth.

But what gets my goat (that's right-- gets my goat; I'll go that far, profanity-concerns be darned) is that there are a lot of people who are fucking morons but who are really convinced they're terribly bright and witty.
