|This is everyone right now times 1000.|
Here's the thing, Jon Stewart always had a magical way to work through the anger and frustration and ridiculousness and wrongdoings of politics and people. Whatever awful thing had happened, you could watch him and even though the problem didn't get better, you at least could work through it and just go "Yeah, somebody fucking gets it." And he didn't just do it by going "Fuck you! You're Bad!" he did it by actually breaking things down and explaining to you why they were fucked up. Not to mention doing it in a hilarious and incredibly smart way.
Change is hard, and this change is really hard. It seems right now that after 17 quick years, he is just as irreplaceable as he ever was.
Good luck to you Jon, but boy, this one hurts.
