Jon Stewart used to be a welcome voice of reason in the world of politics as the host of The Daily Show. After leaving the news satire program on Comedy Central, he’s mostly been laying low, but now he’s back in the political arena again, this time as a writer/director with a new comedy about the convoluted and perplexing election process in the United States.
