Jon Stewart does Glenn Beck

This is getting a bit confusing. First there was Jon Stewart. Then there was Stephen Colbert imitating what Stewart was doing, at least in spirit. Then came Glenn Beck to imitate Colbert. And now Stewart is imitating Beck. And he does it better than either Colbert or Beck.

My wife doesn't even know who glen beck is and she thought this was ROTFLMAO.

jon stewart is hysterical. Also, more importantly, he's fair. He'll also lash out at Charlie Rangel and his tax issues. i can't believe no one has parodied Beck to this point that has the wide appeal of a Stewart.

It was quite brilliant.

This was the greatest piece of tv I have seen in years. Thank you Jon for keeping me sane and laughing my... ahem.. butt off.

By and large I prefer Colbert to Stewart, but this bit was damn brilliant.

Very funny indeed. It's just a matter of time that people soon tire of Beck and his nonsense. Everybody likes a freakshow but after a while the traffic starts flowing again.

Hilarity. This impersonation is SPOT ON!

I love the hand gestures. Stewart must have practiced getting them Juuust right.

Something about Stewert always makes me think of Satan; and I'm an atheist.

Imitation is the sincerest form of exposing wingnuttery, and Jon did a fantastic job of it here. This clip is legendary!
