But two TV personalities found they were both card-carrying patriots when it comes to campaign "corruption."O'Reilly is "not convinced that anybody in America would be a good president at this point." He called running for the presidency a "racket" and attributes some of the corruption to having to "beg for" and raise a ton of money, needing $150 million to run.
"I don't like corrupt media, I don't like corrupt finances," Stewart said. "When are we going to come together and deal with the corruption at the heart of all these problems?"Candidates have to raise money, and engage in a political system of "I give you this but you got to do that," says O'Reilly. "They spend so much time raising money and kissing butt, they don't even think about problem solving. But it cuts both ways. The liberal pinheads are just as bad as the right-wing pinheads."
