Why the Democratic Party Gets a Hall Pass From the Daily Show

The USA Today profile of Jon Stewart -- Fans like their dose of 'Daily' news -- has this nice little squib:

A favorite target is the Fox News Channel, but Stewart says that's not liberal bias: Republicans -- and conservative-leaning news outlets -- are simply richer comic territory. ''What makes them successful is also what makes them mockable, and that is they have the clearest point of view of any of the networks. It's harder to mock something that doesn't know what it is.''
True enough. Imagine the problems in trying to book the 10... er.. 9 ... er...8? Democratic candidates for President on the same show. Humm.... on the other hand.
