Glenn Beck had his rally in Washington. The Lefties had their lower profile rally a few weeks later. Now Jon Stewart has  taken up the mantle of the mushy middle. They poked fun at both extremes (Stewart standing up for the progressives and Colbert for the tea-bagging right). But the satire was set aside briefly with the comedian’s come-to-Jesus-style sermonette. We the people can all work together, he told us, each of us with our differing beliefs and thoughts about the size of government. It was at times poignant and often times naive. But it was ultimately patriotic. Love of country, as Stewart frequently points out, is not the exclusive sentiment of the right. Liberals love their country, too. And that is unfortunately the truth that explains the divide in this country. We each love our country a little too damn much.
