Jon Stewart has not left the Daily Show. I know because there are two more unwatched episodes in my Hulu queue. Therefore, Jon Stewart isn’t gone as long as I don’t watch these last two episodes.
Eventually Hulu will erase the episodes whether I watch them or not, so I’ll have to face the truth and say goodbye before that happens. But I simply can’t do it yet. I can’t face another presidential election without Jon Stewart skewering the GOP.
Jon Stewart is my hero and the official spokesman of my generation. Go ahead, laugh at my worship of Mr. Stewart. I’ll be in my room mourning the loss of one of the few sane minds on television. When I’m finished, I will watch those last two episodes while drinking a bottle of champagne and remembering how often he brought me back from utter despair over the political process.
Jon Stewart gave me permission to embrace sarcasm while still giving a damn.
