The 51st State

Apparently Jon Stewart is a lot more powerful than I would have thought. According to an article at Townhall, he's the reason the Democrats took the House and the Senate.
Forget left of center bloggers, Jon Stewart is this year’s kingmaker. Without him and The Daily Show, the Democrats would not have made such large inroads in the midterm elections.
His theory is that Stewart normalized liberalism, particularly among college students. He made liberalism cool and acceptable, the way Rush had done a decade or so before. Of course from the authors point of view this is awful, because Jon Stewart doesn't present facts as Conservatives see them. From my point of view, he's certainly more factual than Fox News and Rush Limbaugh put together, so I'm ok with him.
