On "The Daily Show" last night, Jon Stewart took a look at the Occupy Wall Street protests that have swamped lower Manhattan for nearly two weeks. "Alright, I guess that is what democracy looks like, although, to be fair, it's also what Bonnaroo looks like," Stewart noted. All that changed, though, when a New York police officer pepper-sprayed what appeared to be a peaceful woman while the camera's were rolling earlier this week. Now all eyes are affixed on New York's Financial District, and on the cop in question -- veteran officer Anthony Bologna (a.k.a. Tony Bologna).
