Posted on Nov 6, 2009

It’s not so much that Jon Stewart is lampooning Glenn Beck for the heck of it that makes this clip from Thursday night’s “Daily Show” so inspired, it’s that he practically out-Glenn-Becks Glenn Beck, all the while stealing a potential conspiracy theory that the excitable Fox News showman might soon have cooked up if left to his own devices.  —KA

Inspired!  Should be paired by Fox with every showing of the Beck show to prove they’re “Fair and Balanced”

The only idiots are those who don’t like their idols lambasted in the media and proving to be in the truth zone by said witty criticisms. It reminds me of those scientists that wanted to prove the danger of connecting things that have no business being so. In this case that dimes caused cancer. It didn’t but they showed how the wrong conclusions could be drawn by the less wary and the criminally minded to make it so. The same applies here.
