Hope’n'Change, Jon Stewart Style

by Brad Warbiany

I’ve always enjoyed Jon Stewart. While I don’t agree with him politically, and occasionally some of his more sophomoric bits don’t quite resonate with me, I find his show one of the few enjoyable “news-ish” shows on TV. In fact, after Dick Cheney shot a friend in the face, on of my first thoughts was “I can’t wait to watch The Daily Show on Monday”.

One common criticism of Stewart is that he’s anti-bush and pro-Democrat. I think he’s more pro-comedy, and he’ll take his laughs where he can get them. So I was quite happy to see this:

Hope and Change, right?

UPDATE: My apologies to Comedy Central about the embed code. It must be something in the theme here that is causing it to break, and I unfortunately had to strip a few elements to make it work. Please note that this video is embedded straight from Comedy Central, and I would not have stripped out their additional elements unless I had to.
