Did any one catch The Daily Show tonight? John Oliver classified the undecided voters in the upcoming election into separate categories... one of the categories was stupid voters... he broke the stupid voter category down into sub categories... the last subset of stupid voters were Cubs Fans... John Oliver and John Stewart then discussed why cubs fans were so stupid....after 100 years they haven't realized what they want will never happen...The Cubs will never win a world series... It made my day :D:

The clip should be on the Daily Show Web Site tomorrow if any one wants to see it.

I was laughing so loud my wife and I woke up my daughter. This was the first time my wife had watched the show and now she loves it.

Stewart is a big Mets fans and Mets fans and Cubs fans don't get along so well, so that's probably part of it, but i also think that Colbert is a Sox fan. At the start of the '06 season he said "Come on my Chicago White Sox! Don't let me down!"

They also made fun of the Cubs on the Colbert Report last night. They had a baseball statistician on who was also using stats to predict the election and Colbert asked him at the start how he did with his baseball predictions. The guy said "Well I had the Cubs not winning the World Series this year." To which Colbert screams out, "Where did you get the balls predicting that the Cubs wouldn't win the World Series." It is on the site now just follow the link below and it is the fourth clip along the top with Nate Silver.

David Letterman has also taken a couple of shots at the Cubs on a few of his recent shows.

My question is: are Tiger Petters the same people who thought the Detroit Tigers would go all the way this year when they got Cabrera and Willis?

I think we made the decision here a while back that Colbert was making a joke, poking fun at bandwagoners or something.

My NY nephew is a Mets fan who loves the Cubbies and can't believe I don't. Colbert? He's such a kidder that you can't tell if he's serious or not. I'm getting to like him a tiny little bit. I might have misunderstood his sarcasm at first.

I heard Jay Leno say something about how he didn't realize it was October until he saw the Cubs choking.

I busted out laughing when I saw that last night, despite the evil glare the Cubs fan girlfriend was giving me. I just couldn't help it.

I was just watching the show on my DVR and was pleasantly suprised at the last pie wedge of "stupid." Immediately had to come to WSI to see if someone had started a thread.

Is it possible that the rest of the country will stop seeing the Cubs fans as lovable and just as losers?

There is a possibility. They can't think of anything else now that they have finally passed the century mark of futility. I'm sure they'll continue to market the Lovable Loser tag until they can't get away with it any more.

I'm depressed, though! I mean, there are almost three-year-old Sox fans who have never seen their team win the World Series! :tongue:

That ought to have, oh, zero effect on anything. But it would be amusing.

I think it's time for the Daily Show to show some class toward Cubs fans. John Oliver and Jon Stewart are obviously flubsessed in the worst way [/quote]

I'm sure I'm being targeted as one of these. But if you can't see the difference between the national jokes being lobbed at the Lovable Losers right now and the daily Cubsession here, you need to look harder.

The Cubs bashing continues. On SNL's Thursday special, Bill Murray was on the debate sketch asking Obama (played by Fred Armisen) and McCain (Darrell Hammond) how to insure that the Cubs would never lose again. Both Obama and McCain said the Cubs are hopeless and will continue to lose year after year.

The look on Bill Murray's face after Obama said it will never happen was priceless.

That was the best part. Thats look of dismay.. Cub fan or not that guy cracks me up every time.

I lost it during when the captions underneath said Cubs are Hopeless.
That and McCain wandering around had me going.:D:

It was funny, but kind of catering to the whole "loveable losers" thing.

They should have had Fred Armisen say something about changing to be White Sox fans, since Obama is one.

It's always hard to tell when Colbert is serious. But you can judge for yourself. Here's the clip.
