John Stewart is the King! In a recent interview he did for Rolling Stone, he basically solidified himself as my hero and mentor. Not only is he unafraid to rant and sometimes rage about the media and current events and the way the two intertwine, but he does it with a perfectly balanced amount of insight and vulgarity. At some point, when you think about these issues as much as he must, you can't really contain your feelings in a well-behaved, grammatically solid essay format. Occassionally, the pissed-off rage and disbelief need to surface, and Stewart is great at it. He's able to make it funny, which is the only way most of the time to break through the malaise that comes ove most people. I'm not sure if that makes a difference, but I'm glad he's doing it.
