Jon Stewart retired from The Daily Show only two weeks ago and now a petition has been set up to bring him back into the world of politics.

A Change.org petition has been launched hoping to convince the Commission on Presidential Debates to consider inviting Jon Stewart moderate one of the three national televised debates that will air sometime next year.

Over the last 16 years, Jon Stewart has played an influential and iconic role in covering US politics and media. We believe he should continue that tradition as a moderator at one of the 2016 Presidential Debates.

Jon Stewart is more than qualified to tackle the moderating job. Mr. Stewart has interviewed 15 heads of state, 22 members of the United States Cabinet, 32 members of the United States Senate, 7 members of the United States House of Representatives, and scores of other political leaders from this country and around the world while establishing himself as the most trusted person in (satirical) news.



The petition asks for 200,000 signatures and a public response from the government on the state of this petition should it reach its goal. So far, it has gathered 163,773.

If you'd like to sign the petition, or leave a comment on why you think it's dumb, you can do that right here

Barry Blitt, on his latest New Yorker cover: "This image seemed like a proper response to the first Presidential debate, but I'm not sure I realized how hard it is to caricature furniture."

Could have been worse, he could have had to actually talk to the chair.

Eight-year-old Alabama resident Cecelia Crawford was not impressed by Mittens' pledge during the debate to fire Big Bird, so today she fired off this sweet little note:

When I grow up I'm going to get married and I want my kids to watch it so do not cut it off. You find something else to cut off!
