Happy 45th birthday, Jon Stewart!
Jon Stewart, American comedian, iconic host of Comedy Central’s "The Daily Show" and hero to geeks all over turns 45 today. In an era of corruption and cynicism, Stewart leads the pack in irreverent humor. His open criticism of the Bush administration and personality punditry shows gives its viewers hope in the face of governmental disappointment. Granted, the president and his cronies have provided Stewart with ample material, but faced with the alternative, I think we would all prefer that Stewart have to work harder to make fun of the times at hand than have them so tragically, if easily, at his disposal.
Happy Birthday, Jon– and hell, if we can’t cry about it, thanks for helping us laugh.
Obligatory comics related video. Damn, he’s young.
