 On “The Daily Show,” Jon Stewart couldn’t help pausing to offer some serious commentary. “I am way too close to this whole episode to be rational about this in any way, shape, or form,” he said. “Last night was a good night … not just for New York or D.C. or America, but for human people…. Al-Qaida’s opportunity is gone.”
