America Prepares to Get Angry at Jon Stewart
By Elspeth Reeve | October 26, 2010 11:38am
Jon Stewart has begun his tour of the nation's capital with a taping of The Daily Show before a "very, very policy-oriented" audience in Washington, The Washington Post's Dan Zak reports. ("We're not used to people nodding, like, 'Oh, I worked on that bill,' " Stewart said.) Stewart and Stephen Colbert's many young fans are packing their bags and arranging for sofas to crash on as they ready to head into D.C. for the comedians' pro-satire Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear. But not everyone's so excited about the big bash. Stewart has obviously taken Glenn Beck's rally in August as inspiration, and some fear that Middle Americans will see the event as another example of smug elites mocking the heartland. (Whether it is elitist in itself to think that a show on Comedy Central that relies heavily on dick jokes is too high-brow to appeal to Real Americans is a question that remains unanswered.)
The Most Influential Man of 2010 is Jon Stewart, according to a reader survey by the not-so-elite men's lifestyle site AskMen. Stewart beat out Bill Gates and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. Last year its readers picked Don Draper as most influential, followed by sprinter Usain Bolt.

Ya think? Perfect timing.
I get to mock them in a week....
Do I hear smug, pretentious and condescending?
Because thats what it is.
Just glad these dopes are spending the weekend in Adams Morgan instead of campaiging.
Well they will probably find out how smug, pretentious and condescending beg bugs can be.
Flopping on some strangers sofa is not a good idea.
Still low balling Becks numbers I see!!
They told us Jon Stewart (Metrosexual-Man) was the most influential mug in politics in the past election cycles as well.
They are grooming him to move from Communist Central to SeeBS News, both under Viacommie.
Too many magazine covers. Too many “informative” books to believe otherwise.
He’s “the voice of a generation” (of douchebags).
How many kegs of beer will be flowing for this Halloween Eve party? That’s what this is. A college kegger with celebrity guest stars.
Jon Stewart the voice of a generation (of douchebags)???
Nah...He’s not the voice of Generation x.....He’s the bitch of the lefty baby boomers....those are his REAL masters.
Stewart is a disgusting piece of garbage.
Stewart has turned into the anti-Lenny Bruce.
The establishment is great.
We need to love our establishment.
Stop the insane anti-establishment-ism.
