JON STEWART: We have seen these folks, the loud folks over the years dominate our national conversation over our most important issues

(video montage of sensational personalities)

But why don't we hear from the 70 to 80 percenters? Well most likely because you have sh*t to do (applause)
And quite frankly even if you didn't have sh*t to do you may lack the theatrical flair necessary for today's 24hour-a-day 7-day-a-week news media...
Below are a compilation of the most theatrical performances and promos in recent politics, including some which were included in 'The Daily Show' montage:
  1. The rise and rise of Glenn Beck: His appeal and the method to his madness
  2. Howard Kurtz' Reliable Sources "outraged" by Glenn Beck and Lou Dobbs
  3. Alan Grayson delivers wrestling-style promo on house floor - GOP Health Plan = Don't get sick!
  4. Fake pundit Stephen Colbert compares himself to "fake" pundit Glenn Beck
  5. Rush Limbaugh: You're either with Bobby Jindal or you're against us
