To be fair to Stewart, he’s done his fair share of reports attacking Obama and Democrats as of late. But did he seriously think that his rally would amount to anything other than an a thinly veiled excuse for Democratic campaign events? Does he really believe that snark and ironic detachment will be the prevailing mode of discussion just a few days before the election? Or should Stewart and Colbert just have admitted they were rooting for Democrats all along, and the purpose of this rally was to gin up support?
