Funniest. Takedown. Evah.

Jon Stewart ridicules Glenn Beck for his obscene smear of George Soros. Of particular note is the way Stewart turns the blackboard back on Beck and Fox News; it's actually all quite accurate.

There's a lot here to like, but my favorite part of this is actually the sequence of truncated Beck quotes describing himself in unflattering terms -- all, of course, taken absurdly out of context. Talk about being hoist on one's own petard.

Then there's this:

Stewart: Surgery. Ass surgery. [pause] To remove ... a fissure? Hemorrhoid? Or perhaps to insert the powerful right forearm of a Hungarian dictator.
