Responding to Jon Stewart's statement that, in Markay's words, "the agenda the administration has managed to get through "has felt timid at times,'" Markay insisted:
Under "timid," read "not liberal enough." Stewart's complaint was that the Obama agenda has not come to completely dominate the national political scene. He's not concerned that perhaps the president has overreached. No, to the extent that there are problems with Obama's policies, they are due only to the fact that those policies are not far enough to the left.
Markay, of course, does not back this assertion up. He's merely pretending to read Stewart's mind, insisting that he can divine what Stewart said better than Stewart himself.
