What does it say about politicians that this fellow had more credibility than most of them? He dared to satirize those in power and he became a media force for the years he held the desk. Yesterday was his last show and he will be missed although spinoffs will continue. Jon Stewart educated a generation on the ways and wiles of politics and that group will look askance at any politician who tries to spin his way to credibility. Maybe his legacy will be politicos who dare to say what they mean no matter the consequence and act in concert with their words. That won't keep them from facing opposition but it might be refreshing for us poor citizens.
