Jon Stewart Takes a Whiff of Wisconsin and It Stinks

The Daily Show, like the cable news programming it mocks, got local last night and took a close look at the Wisconsin recall election. Reluctantly turning to cable's talking heads to learn "what's at stake," Jon Stewart finds out that had Scott Walker not been reelected he would have suffered one of "the worst indignities for an elected official" and that Wisconsin will be on a verge of becoming as freedomless as China at the hands of teachers' unions. On that first point, we think Eliot Spitzer would beg to differ, but no matter. Despite the inflated rhetoric, this recall election is democracy at its finest. Or at least it would be if either party stopped whining and blaming the other side for having to participate in it.
