As Jon Stewart pointed out on last night's Daily Show, TV pundits have been comparing the protests in Madison, Wisconsin to everything from the demonstrations in Tunisia and Egypt to 9/11. Of course, none of those are even remotely apt. Anyone with an ounce of historical perspective can see the situation in Madison is more like a cross between the assassination of William McKinley and the great Chicago fire with a dash of the divorce of Burt Reynolds and Loni Anderson thrown in. Duh.
