Jon Stewart on the newspaper crisis:
Ah, what a great time to be a journalist.
More sad than funny. Wonder how much longer Stewart’s own paradigm is going to last.

Stewart’s kind of a douchebag himself.
Looks like his writers are sucking nowadays as well.
“Stewart’s kind of a douchbag himself.”
“There’s nothing “kind of” about Stewart when it comes to being a douchebag. Dare we remember that, a couple of months ago, Jon “Mr. Sophisticate” Stewart launched into foul-mouthed tirade against Sarah Palin saying, and I quote, “F*** her.”

The important question is, how can Jon Stewart be even more unfunny, now that the Daily Show will be a mouthpiece for the new administration.
Given that fellatiating for The Man does not make for good comedy, perhaps Comedy Central should replace him with Dennis Miller.
