I’m going to let you make the call on this one. Are “Miles” and “Thistle” real people, or are they a goof created by the MacIver Institute as a satire of anti-Walker protesters? I can kind of buy that Miles is real but Thistle appears to be some sort of new SNL recurring character in development. “Wisconsin protester girl” could be just what the show needs to make it relevant again.

The other clip, via Newsbusters, is Jon Stewart delivering a reality check to MSNBC. Lots, lots, lots more reality to come, and all of it will be even more bitter than Tuesday was.
