I’m less of a fan of The Daily Show lately – partially for lack of viewing opportunities, also as it’s lost some of its teeth – but there’s no denying its appeal, or the fact that it’s crafted by intelligent people who are appalled at the direction their country has taken.

The day begins with a morning meeting where material harvested from 15 TiVos and even more newspapers, magazines and Web sites is reviewed. That meeting, Mr. Stewart said, “would be very unpleasant for most people to watch: it’s really a gathering of curmudgeons expressing frustration and upset, and the rest of the day is spent trying to mask or repress that through whatever creative devices we can find.”
