ALL COMEDY IS CONSERVATIVE:

No Joke: Jon Stewart became what he once denounced (KONRAD YAKABUSKI, 8/03/15, The Globe and Mail)

The truth, however, is that it really is time for Mr. Stewart to go. During his 16-year stint at The Daily Show, he morphed from an earnest but impartial comedian railing against the polarization and phoniness of American politics and cable news into a funnyman-activist who skewered only one-half of the political spectrum. He became what he once denounced.

He could still be incisive and funny. But his rants became increasingly self-righteous and contemptuous toward anyone who didn't share his elite liberal world view.

Self-caricature is always funny.
