Being a huge Jon Stewart fan, I was delighted to read about his background. What a great intellect, and understanding behind his jokes and performance on the Daily Show. He will be missed. The question now is- "Who can replace him?"

This guy is a joke! He is totally bought out hook, line, and sinker by the liberal left, he is one of their henchmen so beware, what he spouts is supreme ignorance of what is happening in America today!
