Jon Stewart: Yes, Fox News, I Do Make Silly Ethnic Voices


Okay, seriously, this spat between Fox News and Daily Show host Jon Stewart is getting old. Both sides are being crybabies now. But that doesn’t mean that there hasn’t been some entertaining television to come out of these past few days of bickering. For example, in order to rebut Fox’s claim that Stewart’s recent vocal caricature of GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain was racist, the comedian cued up a tape of dozens of his previous ethnic or cultural caricatures. It’s pretty funny, and also a clever response. While Fox can lash out with its trademark self-righteous defensiveness, Stewart can always play the asshole — which is always much more fun.
