A Look Back At Jon Stewart's Satirical Demolitions

Last night on one of what is the final few episodes of his show, Jon Stewart took a moment of reflection, and managed to quote Conan (the barbarian, not the host) in true Daily Show fashion.  Please don't go Jon, there is still time!

In 17 seasons on the Daily Show, Jon Stewart has crushed, destroyed, demolished, and especially eviscerated every opponent in his path with a merciless, unyielding bulldozer of satire (we know this because every headline of the viral news era tells us so, including many of ours). In his penultimate episode, Stewart takes a look back at the enemies he’s thoroughly defeated... or not.

All those segments made us feel better in the moment, but god, that’s depressing. No wonder he’s retiring.

Still though, gonna miss you when you return to your home planet.  Gonna miss you real bad.  

Tune in tomorrow for the end of another era.
