Jon Stewart Will Miss Rush Limbaugh


How do New Yorkers feel now that Rush Limbaugh has decided to find a new part-time hurricane shelter because of rising taxes? Sorrow? Utter indifference? No. Relief! So says Jon Stewart, who last night finally revealed the long-running charade we’ve been performing for years to try to force Rush out. The hot-dog-cart crackdown, the gay-pride parades, the Ivy Leaguers masquerading as immigrant cab drivers — all an effort to make this an unbearable place for him. “He was the Truman in our citywide Truman Show,” Stewart says. It was exhausting, but now that he’s leaving, Stewart has one final message: “Here’s my EZ-Pass. Get the fuck out of here.”
