Jon Stewart parodies Glenn Beck again, explains "Glenn's rules of the blackboard"

Jon Stewart has some fun at Glenn Beck expense once again, morphing into Beck's persona to highlight what he sees as the absurdity of his logic. Following on from Stewart's meme that politics is like wrestling, as I've written previously Impersonation is a wrestling staple. A proven way of undercutting an opponent by mocking one's character traits and revealing their simplicity.

Conservative Libertarian (March 18, 2010)

JON STEWART: This is Glenn's blackboard so we have to play by Glenn's rules which are "If you subscribe to an idea you also subscribe to that idea's ideology and to every possible negative consequence that that ideology remotely implies when you carry it to remote extremes."

For instance - Progressives, if you believe in a minimum safety net for the nation's neediest, you believe in total and absolute government control.

So if you believe that faith provides a strong moral tentpost for a nation's foundation, it can only lead to totalitarian theocracy.
