It’s come to this.
An opinion piece in Politico Magazine suggests Dems should embrace Jon Stewart as the nominee if Joe Biden doesn’t run for a second term:
OPINION: Joe Biden should run for president in 2024. But if he decides against it for whatever reason, Jon Stewart should run on the Democratic ticket instead.
He’s exactly the person they need.https://t.co/atkKSpVFpv

This. Is. Insane.
“The (Fairly Serious) Case for Jon Stewart in 2024,” via Politico:
To get the “seriousness” question out of the way right off the top: Stewart’s definition of being an entertainer has him wrestling with the kind of big, serious topics that actual politicians specialize in avoiding. He spends his time recording an AppleTV show and podcast interview show on policy issues such as abortion, climate change, gun control, misinformation, modern monetary theory and other wonky-current topics, with the occasional Judd Apatow and Mark Cuban appearance thrown in for gloss.
So he’s clearly engaged enough for the job. But the bigger reason is that he’s a better fit than most politicians for what modern politics has become.
This really is the only honest reaction libs should have at this nonsense:

But, alas. . .
Here’s Bill Kristol comparing Stewart to Volodymyr Zelensky:
We could certainly use someone with the qualities and of the quality of Volodymyr Zelensky as our next president. Which means we need that person as the Democratic nominee in 2024. Is that person Jon Stewart?https://t.co/97gDi72uyG
