Users from religiously themed dating sites, JDate and Christian Mingle, were asked to name their “favorite political news funnyman.” Not surprisingly, Jon Stewart, who is indeed Jewish, "was the overwhelming favorite of the JDate poll (51 percent) while Catholic Stephen Colbert won a plurality of the votes on Christian Mingle (39 percent)."

In addition to Stewart and Colbert, the other two political satirists listed in the survey included “Real Time” host Bill Maher or “Weekend Update” anchor Seth Meyers. Who do you prefer to get your political satire from?

    I think they mean when he called her a dumb twat, the meaning is the same but maybe he used the C word at some other point.

    What i can't figure out is why he is still focused on Sarah Palin 4 years later, dude has issues.

    actually none of them because they are all liberals and bill maher is the least funny of them all.

    Jon for sure. His facial expressions are priceless with his comedy responses.

    To me, Jon Steward is more straightforward so easily to understand and more people can like his humour. Also some of their debates are journalistic gold.

    However, to me, Stephen Colbert is a humour genius, doesn't rely on other actors and became my hero in this occasion:

    Jon Stewart followed closely by Stephen Colbert.
  • Hebsi 2012/08/21 22:35:42
    Bill Maher
    Though I also love the great Comedy Central pair of Stewart and Colbert, I love how Maher just tells it like it is. Even though I disagree with him at times, nobody does it better than him.

    There is no such thing . . . Bill Maher and John Stewart; with their Laughing Machines; are probably the MOST SICKENING, though.

    can't stand bill maher but the rest have made me laugh hard. Maher just disgusts me.
  • David 2012/08/21 21:04:52

    I am actually surprised by the results of JDate and Christian mingle!

    Bill Maher is an atheist Jon and Stephen might as well be the way treat religion in their shows. I haven't seen enough of Seth to make a judgement.

    That said I find Jon, Bill and Stephen very funny so long as stay away from religion!

    Jon Stewart is fantastic at what he does. I also enjoy Colbert just because he's so accurate. The first time I ever saw Fox News (It was a Glenn Beck show I believe) I honestly thought it was a political satire... I laughed for a good while until I realised he was for real. Colbert sums that up perfectly. But I don't see his show as regularly as I do Stewart.

    I think he is sexy in a "good boy could go bad"... kind of way.

    I don't agree with his politics but he argues them well and is an all round genius.
  • Sterling Cunning... 2012/08/21 19:49:15
    At first I thought you meant bill maher. I agree though with your pick he's pretty smart.

    It's between him and stephen colbert...both extremely hilarious

    I like both John Steward and Bill Maher. I am only disappointed that while not a practicing Jewish person he has nothing encouraging to say about Palestinians.

    None of the above.
