Jon Stewart devoted a good third of “The Daily Show” Thursday to a topic that’s front and center in our national conversation: Glenn Beck’s appendix.
OK, so maybe that’s overstating the gravity of the Fox News host’s appendicitis a bit (it hit Beck during his radio show Wednesday, and he’s reportedly doing fine following the surgery). But don’t tell Stewart that.
Upon hearing the news, Stewart and his writers concocted a spot-on parody of Beck’s style that somehow connected his appendicitis to ACORN, Hitler and outdated medical knowledge. Blackboard, reading glasses and emoting all included.
It’s really better seen than described, so have a look for yourself.
