Jon Stewart mimics Beck, Thomas Jefferson applauds

"Ridicule is the only weapon which can be used against unintelligible propositions. Ideas must be distinct before reason can act upon them" - Thomas Jefferson, letter to Francis Adrian Van der Kemp, July 30, 1816

As a regular viewer of Beck's conspiratorial, anti-intellectual nonsense, I must say that Stewart's performance is impeccable. The glasses, the piling up of books on the desk, the scribbled madness, the Daffy Duck (pre Chuck Jones turning him into a foil for Bugs Bunny) style performance ... it's all perfect.

Update: The plot thickens ... the nefarious SEIU in on the conspiracy to remove Beck's appendix?
