Failed comic whose anemic career inexplicably gained new life when he was cast as the anchor of the ersatz "news show", The Daily Show.
Catering to a niche audience of disaffected moonbats and chronically-unemployed basement dwellers, Jon became an instant darling among Leftist media critics and awards show judges by delving into the completely original, unchartered territory of misrepreseting and then making fun of the misrepresented version of the Bush Administration.
Jon's writers drew in a slavering following of easily amused pseudointellectuals through the simple expedient of substituting thoughtful satire (which is based in reality) with heavy-handed absurdity (which consists of setting up and knocking down strawmen). His followers recognized the difference, of course, but because the target was the usurper of the throne which they believed belonged to the Democrats by Divine Right, they deemed it irrelevant.
Jon endeared himself further to his faithful rebels-without-a-clue by appearing on a political opinion show and chastizing his hosts for....opining about politics. His mouthings of trite anti-establishment talking points cemented his celebrity status as a Champion Of Justice.
After every hundredth or so joke at the expense of Republicans, Jon will slip in a token jab at a Dem, just to make sure everyone realizes his heartfelt desire to be an equal opportunity lampooner
Jon often projects evidence of his analytical prowess by furrowing his brow and cocking his eye. The patented "knowing look" he often shoots at his audience as soon as any conservative guest starts speaking is rumored to make him a shoo-in for the next Nobel Peace Prize.
He thus joins the ranks of such paragons of honesty as Michael Moore, Al Sharpton, Dan Rather and Rhandi Rhodes in the Speaking Truth To Power Hall Of Fame.
Did you see the photo of a monkey standing in the Rose Garden Jon Stewart had on his show last night. I laughed so hard I lost my bong hit! What a genius.
