Jon Stewart on politics as marketing

"Ultimately, people would respond a lot better to being treated like adults ... if politics wasn't treated like marketing. Every few years Hollywood produces a film, whether it is Warren Beatty's 'Bulworth' or Chris Rock's 'Head Of State,' in which a presidential candidate goes off-message, tells it like it is, and the voters respond warmly. The last time we saw anyone try this was Howard Dean and he was dismissed for his lack of polish. But who said that? The polishers."

The UK's Guardian has a good article on Jon Stewart.
