Jon Stewart is not Triumph the Insult Comic Dog
This segment should make The Daily Show ashamed of itself. Not politically, but intellectually. The Occupy Wall Street protesters are/were no more divided/coherent than the attendants of the Rally to Restore Sanity, and are no more or less immune to criticism: The problem is, Triumph did it first, and better. It’s the difference between being a comedian and an asshole, and Stewart is on the wrong side of it.
of course, because one is actual comedy, with jokes and everything, and the other is a very tired schtick of “we’re sorta serious and removed but wink wink” ugh.
the best line is the one about how that dude is 99% about caramel.
