OK, it may seem odd for me to say these two things:

1. I still find Jon Stewart funny.

2. I agree with the column "Jon Stewart isn't funny anymore."

Specifically, I agree with the bigger premise -- politics is too disheartening these days. I can't have a gentlemen's agreement to disagree about torture or unlimited executive power. It's not something that I can look beyond as someone merely having a different outlook on life. If you believe torture should be legal, I don't want to talk to you -- I don't care if you're a friend or family member. So I don't bring it up. It feels like that sometimes with the body politic, too -- that we can't fix ourselves by polite means, and I don't really want to go there.
