I say this all the time, but he fuckin' rocks my world. I love it when he calls the pundits and politicians out on their bullshit. Every single time it happens I fall deeper in love with him. Dude. Will it ever stop?

I'll include some of the gems from the interview:

"Let me tell you why I think this thing has caught some attention. It's the gap between what CNBC advertises itself as and what it is, and the help that people need to discern this."

“I understand that you want to make finance entertaining, but it's not a fucking game.”

"Nobody is asking for [CNBC] to be a regulatory agency, but whose side are they on? These guys at these companies were on a Sherman's March through their companies financed by our 401(k)'s and all the incentives of their companies were for short-term profit. They burned the fucking house down with our money and walked away rich as hell. And you guys knew that was going on."


The best part, though, was when Jon rolled a clip of Jim Cramer's appearance on Martha Stewart's tv show earlier that day. Marth Stewart put a mound of dough and a rolling pin down in front of Cramer, and said, "You gotta flatten the dough; pretend it's Jon Stewart." Then Cramer started hitting the dough with the rolling pin, repeatedly. When they came back from the clip, Jon quipped, "Mr. Cramer, don't you destroy enough dough on your own show?"

FUCK YEAH!

Oh man. If you haven't seen the clip yet, check it out on The Daily Show's official website. There are so many other great quotes and moments from the interview and you've just gotta see it. It was quite the smackdown; Jon just shredded any credibility Cramer might've had to pieces. Very satisfying to watch.

The Daily Show last night was... Fuck, it was insanely good. Political satire at its best. It was funny, sharp, awesome, and many other things that I can't think of because it's too early. If you didn't see it, you NEED to. I only hope TDS will make more segments and pieces like that one.

Jon has awesome puppeteer skills. I love you Jon!!!

I can't seem to stop thinking about how fabulous Jon Stewart is. I spent a good chunk of yesterday reading and writing about the recent debate Jon engaged in with Gov. Huckabee over gay rights (the transcript of which can be found in my previous post), and glowing with pride over it. And because I had basically nothing to do today, I found myself scouring [livejournal.com profile] tds_rps.

I discovered Fast Times at NAMBLA High by [livejournal.com profile] smilesawakeyou, which is an AU high school fic that surprisingly, actually works. It features Jon Leibowitz (Stewart) moving from New Jersey to a smaller town, where he begins to attend NAMBLA High! Unfortunately, on his first day there he finds himself face-to-face with some anti-Semitic students, but all is not lost! His first class is English with teacher Mr Jerry Seinfeld. Mhmm! Jon quickly establishes himself as a well-spoken, sarcastic intellectual when he responds to a young Tucker Carlson's digs at Hemingway, grabbing the attention of one Stephen Colbert.

This excllent fic, which is 21 chapters long already and counting, features many other real life characters such as Amy Sedaris, Paul Dinello, and Anderon Cooper (just to name a few) as fellow classmates of Jon, and John Oliver, Steve Carrel, and Lewis Black (among others) in guest appearances as the faculty of Nambla High. There's even a cameo by Bill O'Reilly as the stick-up-his-ass principal of the school.

I don't want to give anything else away as there are many slashy pairings and plotpoints worth reading, so please go read it now if you're into that kind of thing. It's smart, funny, and hot! What's not to love?

After discovering that whopper of a fic, I found a slew of great Daily Show and Jon-centric interviews and a number of wonderful quotes on gay marriage here.

Finally, I found this biography of Jon, which is certainly the lengthiest, most thorough biography of Jon Stewart I've ever read. Read it.

Basically, what happens to me about once a year is happening. I am falling madly, deeply in love with Jon Stewart all over again. I'm completely unable to resist his charming, sarcastic wit, his endearing, self-deprecating humour, and his undeniable ability to call the partisan pundits out on their bullshit.

I love him.
