FuncAmb, babe, I've been watching the Daily Show since Craig Kilborn was hosting, and I started an alt-paper on my campus because the official student paper was too boring, preachy and naive when it came to administration policy. So I think I know a little something about humor and political skewering. Most of the Daily Show is just fine, and the correspondent segments are still great. But have you not noticed the Stewart jokes have been getting less funny in and of themselves, and more ideological over the past several months? The Bush jokes just aren't as funny as they used to be - they sound like they were written by Joe Conason or some similarly humorless Salon writer. As Jerry Seinfeld might say, "I object to it as a comedian."
