Jon Stewart and me.

Three hundred and sixty-six days ago, I woke up to an email from my sister-in-law in Los Angeles — and several other friends and readers — whose mouths had dropped open when they saw a picture of this blog in a hilarious segment of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." I've never figured out exactly how the show's producers came across this site in their quest for easy-to-parody lefties — Eschaton and I were the segment's two featured liberals — but now that last week's episode of "The Colbert Report" featured a pitch-perfect send-up of Unitarian Universalism [Windows MediaPlayer req'd], I've decided that someone in the Jon Stewart empire simply must have UU connections. Only an insider could know all the subtleties of our advanced metaphysics. Keep up the good work, Top Secret Agent Waldo! But why didn't you offer me tickets to the Academy Awards?

An amazing elevator speech! (for the Empire State, that is). A model to all of us who are not mumbling enough or have not reached the highest levels of Unitarian uncertainty.

Could you perhaps give a recap for those of us who gave up on deinstalling Firefox to install the Viacom plugin, and who also can't get it on Mac platform? I'd love to see it if there's another site where it's available.

TK, just install the "IE View" extension in Firefox and then restart Firefox and click the button "View this page in IE", the stream will start playing as soon as IE is automatically opened.

Yes, you can buy Daily Show and Colbert Report episodes from iTunes.

I take that back: iTunes is now offering The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, but it looks like this just began and doesn't include the episode we're discussing.
