I have mad love for Barney Stinson. We're all aware of this.

HOWEVER.

One man was responsible for my survival from the years 2001 through 2008. (Okay, two: we can't forget Stephen Colbert.) Jon Stewart, people. He has made me laugh, he has made me cry, he has been there through everything. My most formative years! Would I be so interested in politics and what's going on in the world without him? Maybe, but maybe NOT.

Think of the memories we've shared: His actually totally heartfelt and affecting monologue post-9/11; going on Crossfire and ridiculing Tucker Carlson for his bow ties and calling him a dick on live tv; how I cried when Bush won reelection and Jon was so completely sharing my misery, tapping his pen on the desk and moving the papers around and shoulders all sagged with the realization we had FOUR MORE YEARS of this. And my favorite part of Obama winning the election was the PURE UNADULTERATED GLEE on Jon's face when he announced the news (and how Stephen cried!!), and the next day ("Karl Rove can't hurt me anymore!!").



THIS MAN HAS CHANGED TV. AND MY LIFE.

DO THE RIGHT THING. VOTE JON STEWART.

I would've voted for Colbert over Barney, but as much as I love Jon I just cannot do it!

I hate that they're in the same bracket. Out of everyone that's left, my final two would be Jon and Barney.

Barney won last year! HE DOESN'T NEED THIS LIKE JON DOES. COME ON, SHAKE IT UP!!

I seriously am, like, unable to choose between Stewart and Colbert. Usually I'd say Colbert, but... it's like Rocky and Bullwinkle, Sonny and Cher, chocolate and peanut butter. THEY'RE SO PERFECT TOGETHER.

Yeah, but last year the only people who were voting were like... the HIMYM, VM, and Supernatural fandoms. It was barely a contest! Barney can't help his extremely high level of awesomeness, okay? Don't hold it against him.

And IKR? They are wonderful together. I think part of my problem with TDS now is just that I watched Daily Show so religiously from the time Jon started, like every night for years, that it got kind of tired for me after Colbert left because he and Jon interacting were like the highlight of the show. Plus, Colbert's humor is much more along the lines of my own; I was a huge Strangers With Candy fan back in the day.

Fandom Steel Cage Match, why do you force me to make this heart-wrenching decisions!?!

Def voted Jon, for real reasons and also because Barney shouldn't win twice, that's boring.

I love Barney, and I'd rather see him win than, say, Dean Winchester (SORRY WORLD [and by world I mean, Supernatural fans]), but it'd be awesome if Jon pulled it out.

JON STEWART IS NOT A FICTIONAL CHARACTER AND SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED IN THE COMPETITION.

I am so with you. I would not have survived the last eight years without Jon Stewart, among a few others. Been watching him eviscerate politicians since 1999.

Jon is just. One of my favorite human beings. Ever. There's pretty much nothing I don't love about him.

I've been crazy entertained by this whole thing. The Sweet 16 pairings were crazy.

I will continue to support Barney because I picked him as the overall winner for my pool, and I don't even watch HIMYM. I CHOOSE ME!

My heart belongs to Jon but my vote goes to Barney!

My FAVORITE THING about fandom cage match is all of these campaign speeches that keep popping up on my friends list. Seriously, every day is a new delight. I LOVE YOU SO HARD, DUDE.

You know... they were tied in my heart but I'd voted for Jon... you just turned my tie-Jon vote into a for-Jon vote.

Thanks for reminding me of all the reasons I adore him.
