Look, Stewart is funny, wickedly funny. His timing, expressions and body language are the best. And the fact that his patter is politics only makes it better; I like politics, he makes political humor.
What’s not to love?
But lot’s of people forget that the man is a clown. He’s an entertainer. He’s on a stage making people laugh at jokes. Think Abbott and Costello. Andrew Dice Clay. Rodney Dangerfield.
He isn’t a commentator. He’s isn’t a reporter. He isn’t a writer.
So I love it when folks use Stewart as a source of news or to make a point. I especially love it when he turns his schtick back on the liberal establishment that loves him so:
