Glenn Beck is a jizz mopper.

bureaucrap November 6, 2009 at 10:15 am

Saw it last night. Pretty d*&n funny. I would recommend it to my friends and neighbors.

Big Liver November 6, 2009 at 10:15 am

I saw this last night and I couldn’t believe how acutely JS captured the Beck-turd.

norbizness November 6, 2009 at 10:16 am

Stewart’s acting biorhythms all definitely peaked in 1997, when he guest starred as Andy Dick’s “twin” brother in News Radio.

SuburbanCorrespondent November 6, 2009 at 10:16 am

Ugh. I love you Wonkette, but your uber-snarky “everything is lame unless we did it ourselves” schtick wears a little thin, like that kid in high school with the corduroy jacket who only listened to vinyl and didn’t even OWN a TV. This was legit funny and don’t even play that it wasn’t.

Larry McAwful November 6, 2009 at 10:18 am

When they removed Glenn Beck’s hemorrhoids, why did they decide to put them on TV instead of Glenn Beck? I know there’s not much difference between the two, but still.

Jim89048 November 6, 2009 at 10:24 am

Up until last night, the only times I’ve ever seen Glen Beck has been when Shouty Keith has shown clips and pointed and laughed at him. Now that I’ve seen JS’s excellent portrayal, I’ll never see him any other way.

norbizness November 6, 2009 at 10:25 am

As for me, he might as well have been parodying minor characters from Petticoat Junction, a show that I’ve never seen. Now if we could get that hot new comic Richard Jeni to do a Morton Downey Jr. parody, that would be fresh. Don’t bore me with the details about whether either principal is currently living.

jetjaguar November 6, 2009 at 10:26 am

Do the kids still say “epic” these days?

Come here a minute November 6, 2009 at 10:26 am

Not a bad cover, but it’s funnier when Beck sings it.

jodyleek November 6, 2009 at 10:27 am

This is why I love Jon Stewart, want to have hot, sweaty sex with all 5’6″ of him, and have his babies. (Don’t tell my husband, okay?)

sleepy November 6, 2009 at 10:27 am

nobel-worthy meta-brilliance.

hockeymom November 6, 2009 at 10:28 am

When he pulled out the “Operation” game, I almost fell off the couch.

OReillysVibrator November 6, 2009 at 10:28 am

I think this might become an occasionally recurring segment in the future. But be careful, Jon; the Beck character, the more you spend time on it, parasitically attaches itself to you, growing in dominance and power until you BECOME Beck itself. If this happens, please heroically throw yourself out a building, or even more heroically, use some dynamite (Stage 3 of the Beck leech compels you to buy increasing amounts of explosives) and take it to a 9/12 rally.

proudgrampa November 6, 2009 at 10:29 am

Hilarious. Stewart really captures the whole Beck schtick.

shadowMark November 6, 2009 at 10:29 am

God must like this clip because my mobile broadband let me watch almost the whole thing with just one or two stops for buffering.

[re=452084]hockeymom[/re]: Sorry, that should have come with a “spoiler” warning.

Little Old Lady November 6, 2009 at 10:32 am

The fact that Glenn Beck is a ham actor wouldn’t be so hard to stomach if he weren’t such a *bad* ham actor.
BTW, his home network should be Comedy Central. Even Faux News should have more sense than than to showcase this “bottom of the barrel, but still over the top” cretin.

binarian November 6, 2009 at 10:32 am

Damn, he’s good. Bring the funny, John.

Oldskool November 6, 2009 at 10:35 am

He nailed the crazy so well it was a little scary. I felt like I was a boy sitting in church all over again.

hobospacejunkie November 6, 2009 at 10:36 am

[re=452088]Prommie[/re]: I didn’t mean anything by it. Some of my best friends are jizz moppers.

rocktonsammy November 6, 2009 at 10:36 am

Not sure who is really the funny one , Stewart or that Bleck guy.

Jim89048 November 6, 2009 at 10:37 am

On another show on another channel I didn’t watch last night, Bill Shatner read some of Levi Johnston’s tweets.

nailsinthecoffin November 6, 2009 at 10:50 am

The Daily Show is without a doubt the best media criticism on TV today. This whole week of shows has been an eviseration of the cable news media.

Raquelabeta November 6, 2009 at 10:51 am

Saw this last night, what was the line? Something about communists socializing nazism?? I laughed for a good two minutes.

The genius was in the pauses. Mucho Jon love right now.

KilgoreTrout_XL November 6, 2009 at 10:53 am

I’ve worked with better, but not many.

The glasses bit was pretty hilarious for whatever reason.

EmSharp November 6, 2009 at 10:53 am

[re=452066]SuburbanCorrespondent[/re]: Agreed. I love you too, Wonkette, and read you religiously..but sometimes its okay to admit that Jon Stewart is quite possibly the most original and hilarious pundit out there right now.

SayItWithWookies November 6, 2009 at 10:54 am

There’s a great 3-part Glenn Beck bio in Salon that portrays him as a really slimy amoral opportunist who doesn’t believe anything he says, but will say anything for ratings. And this was all way before he got his Fox radio show. Ah — it starts here if you haven’t seen it yet.

Mr Blifil November 6, 2009 at 10:54 am

Lot of work to call another guy an asshole, literally. But I’m down widdit.

finallyhappy November 6, 2009 at 11:02 am

[re=452096]Jim89048[/re]: I heard Shatner and Nimoy speak this summer. He said he had Rush on his show and Rush is really smart but does all his stuff to get media attention- I agree that Rush is a big media whore. Nimoy basically answered by saying we need to return decency and civility to the media.

Gorillionaire November 6, 2009 at 11:03 am

I think Stewart is actually getting “meaner” and I am digging it.

proudgrampa November 6, 2009 at 11:04 am

[re=452113]Cicada[/re]: Fuck, yeah!

Ted Kennedy Breakdancing November 6, 2009 at 11:06 am

Oh for God’s sake Juli. That was incredibly funny. Don’t try to pretend it wasn’t.

Big Irish November 6, 2009 at 11:11 am

I can’t wait to see Glenn Beck try to imitate John Stewart for a segment in attempted revenge. Now that’s gonna be some good television. Way to bait the hook, JS.

FlownOver November 6, 2009 at 11:13 am

[re=452107]EmSharp[/re]: Wonkette, I’m piling on. Repent or be damned.

You know this was gold. I’d expect the note of arch disdain from Her Ladyship the Dowager Dame Nooningtonshire of Murdochham, but sometimes Larry the Cable Guy’s line is on target: “I don’t care who you are, that’s funny.”

Mr. Tusks November 6, 2009 at 11:13 am

Gaaah Glenn and Rush and B.O. FEED off this kind of attention. If we laugh at them that makes them relevant, which is all they really need! For once resist the snark and IGNORE these people, that’s the only way they’ll really die.

TGY November 6, 2009 at 11:18 am

I don’t understand. Where does Juli say she didn’t think it’s funny? ‘Friday Fun Video’ kinda implies the contrary.

NopantsMcGee November 6, 2009 at 11:19 am

Wonkette, sometimes you have to accept that you’re not the only people that can bring on the funny.

TGY November 6, 2009 at 11:20 am

[re=452127]Mr. Tusks[/re]: Hm, no. They need to be parodied the shit out of. When you argue with them seriously, *that* makes them relevant. Humor is a weapon.

Lazy Media November 6, 2009 at 11:22 am

Isn’t a parody supposed to involve comedic exaggeration? This seems a good deal more rational, and less bizarre in mannerism, than the actual Glenn Beck.

Sharkey November 6, 2009 at 11:23 am

OK why are you people saying that Juli didn’t think this (and / or JS) was funny?

I’m just not seeing anything particularly snarky in Juli’s words.

You people are weird.

proudgrampa November 6, 2009 at 11:29 am

[re=452140]Sharkey[/re]: They may be a tad sensitive. It’s been tough week. Come on, Wonketteers, it’s Friday! Let’s start drinking early today!

TGY November 6, 2009 at 11:29 am

[re=452135]TGY[/re]: Like remember when Reagan replied to a serious point by Jimmy Carter in a debate with ‘There you go again’? It’s a VERY powerful weapon.

Sharkey November 6, 2009 at 11:31 am

[re=452142]proudgrampa[/re]: Done and done!

TGY November 6, 2009 at 11:31 am

[re=452137]Lazy Media[/re]: Sometimes just the parody without exaggeration is enough because of the context. It’s ‘understated parody’ in a sense.

proudgrampa November 6, 2009 at 11:32 am

[re=452142]proudgrampa[/re]: Where did my “a” go???

An American in Toronto November 6, 2009 at 11:32 am

Wonkette, don’t be bitter like all the lib radio hosts who claim that Stewart and Colbert are listening to their shows religiously and cribbing every joke.

It’s Jon Stewart’s world, we just live in it.

freakishlystrong November 6, 2009 at 11:33 am

What the hell is wrong with everyone today? Teabag hangover? Stewart is a gift, Juli iS snarkalicious and Wonkett,(and her commenters),have almost COST me my job on several occasions.
IT’S A BIG TENT SHEEPLE!!1

BeWoot November 6, 2009 at 11:35 am

Leave Juli alone.

Oldskool November 6, 2009 at 11:44 am

Yeah, I don’t get the Wonkette jabs either. Someone must be typing different words in one of those alternate reality thingys.

Prommie November 6, 2009 at 11:45 am

[re=452130]TGY[/re]: Well, the headline is condescending, “popular” is a dirty word to the elite, dontchaknow, and some could take that to mean Juli regards Jon as lowbrow, but I think they got it wrong, I think its a matter of offering a semi-apology for posting something that has been posted absolutely everywhere already, Juli is self-parodying, as if to say, “Oh, okay, I will post the Jon Stewart thing, too, even though anything which achieves so much popularity must obviously be, well, popular, and thus not the sort of thing we elite and above the above it all set here would normally post, enjoy slumming with the masses, wonketters.”

No, Juli meant not to dis Jon; but those few who followed her feigned disdain with their real disdain for Jon, these are the ones who simply wish they were he.

the problem child November 6, 2009 at 11:47 am

I think it was the use of the word “comical”, which in Wonketteland, is kind of a diss often, but I think not in this case.

Prommie November 6, 2009 at 11:49 am

[re=452148]An American in Toronto[/re]: Jon steals nothing from those lib radio hacks (there is a reason lib radio has no audience: It Sucks Shit. Shrill and Earnest, the horror of it).

I know Jon (and his writers) steal nothing from lib radio because the fact is, they steal most of his material from my comments on this and various other blogs. True fact.

SuburbanCorrespondent November 6, 2009 at 11:53 am

[re=452140]Sharkey[/re]: It just seemed to me that the post was dripping with sarcasm – “the comical Jon Stewart video”, “the blogs just love it”. Instead of acknowledging its awesomeness, Juli seemed to be saying, “we might as well post this, since all the plebians out there are simply eating it up”. I hope Prommie’s theory is correct though, because as I said I love Wonkette despite its tendency to OD on blogsnark from time to time.

Jim89048 November 6, 2009 at 11:53 am

[re=452358]Mad Brahms[/re]: Bourdieu? Whassat? This is something I learned from flirting. You ambiguously pretend, or not pretend, to be pretending that you are pretending to be hot for someone, because you really are hot for them, so that they will be kept in a state of suspense, wondering, are you pretending to be hot for them to cover up the fact that you really are hot for them, or are you openly feigning pretending real hotness for them, so that they won’t know you aren’t really hot for them.

“Oh honey, when I was drooling all over that blonde with the huge tatas, I was doing it ironically, to point out how absurd it would be to even think that I would be attracted to a blond with huge tatas.”

Potater November 6, 2009 at 2:28 pm

People, Wonkette does not post all the funny Daily Show / Colbert Report videos because if they did this would be a blog of almost nothing BUT Stewart / Colbert clips. Wonkette prefers to bring the funny that you wouldn’t find anywhere else, or find the funny in things that aren’t necessarily funny, hence why we continue to come back to it day after day for just a taste of its awesomeness. Like Newt Gingrich to Jesse Helms’ ass.

[re=452066]SuburbanCorrespondent[/re]: Oh come now. Wonkette is probably just engaging in the grand olde tradition of throwing a smidgen of snark in even when it’s something they like and approve of. You know, like that funny man Jon Stewart does.
