…namely the “it’s all a bunch of ironic hipsters whose lives are so comfortable that they don’t feel any real commitment to anything” brush, I ask: isn’t it just possible that much of Stewart’s audience voted for Barack Obama expressly because they feel sadness for those who can’t afford health insurance, and want to help those less fortunate than themselves? For instance, maybe, just maybe, the young liberals in the audience wanted universal health care for entirely non-ironic reasons?

I resist the temptation to close with an unironic fuck-you.
