“I could give a flying crap about the political process. We’re an entertainment company.”
– Glenn Beck

Jon Stewart does a tone-perfect Glenn Beck send up. Since Glenn Beck’s existence serves no other useful purpose in this world, he might as well be good for comedy.What makes this segment so brilliant is how little the satire varies from its target. The “logic” of Stewart’s monologues and the fragility of the connections he makes are no more ridiculous than Beck’s and rely on the same false positives and flimsy associations as Beck’s own. A very enjoyable spoof of Beck’s inanity and insanity.
