He is what he used to make fun of

In his 1998 book Naked Pictures of Famous People, Jon Stewart mocked Larry King's TV show. Twelve years later, Jon's Daily Show has become just as predictable as Larry King Live. Is he aware of that? Or that he's actually a bigger joke than King?

Those are questions to ponder as Stewart increasingly appears to have bought into the hype surrounding him.


How else to explain I'm-just-a-comic interviewing Barack Obama last week?

There was a time before all the overly generous praise went to his head when Stewart would have turned down the offer and instead focused on being funny.

Instead, he's morphed into the corporation's stumble-bum and it's neither entertaining nor pretty.
