(Newser) The Daily Show is going on vacation for the next 10 days, so Jon Stewart took the opportunity last night to take down Glenn Beck and his “Restoring Honor” rally—or, as Stewart called it, “Beckapalooza, Beckstock, Beckchella, Becketh Fair, Becking Man.” The epic 10-minute rant moves from Beck’s plans (“Wow, so Glenn Beck didn’t realize that that was an important day in African-American history! I find that totally plausible.”) to the advice Beck’s always giving America to, of course, Goldline and the Glenn Beck University.

Stephen Colbert also addressed the rally on the Report, but he’s a fan: “This isn’t just some picnic. This is the picnic that changes everything.” Watch both clips in the gallery.
