On The Daily Show last night, Jon Stewart ripped into Obama yet again, despite the president turning "to a topic of such monumental importance, it couldn't help but capture the imagination of everyone in the room" — Stewart's words, of course, and referring to his "Rally to Restore Sanity" on Oct. 30. But he wasn't pleased to hear Obama was "amused" by the rally, prompting a predictable imitation of Joe Pesci in Goodfellas.

Stewart also took a swing at fellow Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert's competing "March to Keep Fear Alive," calling it the "Sneak Up and Say Boo to Someone Startle Party." In response, Colbert began his show by saying, "If you're thinking of going to Jon Stewart's 'Rally to Restore Sanity,' you're fucking insane." Why? Because Obama's endorsement of the rally might just have killed it. I'm not sure about that. Fans of both Stewart and Colbert are so rabid, one in ten of them say they'd rather swear off sex than be deprived of the comedian news anchors.
