Daily Diligence

November 6, 2009

The Daily Show has been on a bender recently. Great stuff. There’s a must-watch interview with Al Gore, in which Jon Stewart I think nicely reflects the perspective of the critical urban progressive — a view that is all too often left off the environmentalist platter. You can watch that episode, in its entirety, unedited and uncut, in Part I and Part II.

More impressively, they offer this great parody of Glenn Beckian logic, which is apparently so twisted that Jon Stewart can’t even take himself seriously. Fantastic stuff.

Question of the day: why do non-watchers of the Daily Show, like my mother, invariably refer to the host of the show as “Jon Daily”? I can’t believe that anybody ever referred to Johnny Carson as “Johnny Tonight.”



  1. Well, albeit generally spelled differently, Daily is a common name. Tonight, not so much.

  2. The golfer John Daly.
