I've given Jon Stewart some guff here on the CW (and lost a reader over it), and while I don't watch the show that much and I do believe too many Americans use it as their primary news source, there is no disputing the man is seriously funny.
And he is a man with some character also, as seen here. Watch the video-in it, he apologizes for calling Harry Truman a war criminal...see if the part about knowing as the words come out of your mouth that what you are saying is stupid doesn't hit home...sure does with me. Though I rarely get that feeling when I write (beat you to it, didn't I?)
