From a reader:
Now that the Democrats are in power, and thus able to be the objects of ridicule, I am absolutely certain that within six months, we will begin seeing articles declaring that The Daily Show has “lost its edge” and “jumped the shark.” Bonus points for calling Jon Stewart a Republican shill.
Me: I think this is quite sharp and probably right. On the other hand, the other fear — often expressed — is that Stewart takes his Prophet of the Lefty Bloggers role too seriously and will not in fact give equal time to the Dems. As a fan of Stewart’s I’m hoping that’s not the case. But I can certainly understand the concern given his routine of late.
