Where is your god now?

Think of Jon Stewart fan, Sharilyn Johnson, as the canary in the coal mine for the mile wide/inch deep popularity of Barack Obama. Having travelled all the way from Toronto (ha) to attend an election night taping, she was turned away at the door due to all the VIPs seated ahead of her.

Priceless.

These men do not care about you, Sharilyn. To them you are nothing. They cannot make your dreams come true.

How could this happen?! She reserved her tickets 7 months ago! And she's the biggest fan ever! And she took vacation days from her job, booked a hotel, and traveled FROM TORONTO (that's a 52-minute flight!)! Gawker excerpts Johnson's emotional HuffPo screed about the incident, and here are some context-free highlights: "I am owed," "robbed of an experience," "emotionally empty," and our favorite - sorry, favourite - "How do I stand outside under that awning again?"

Imagine the cramped rage of the jihadis. They hack men's heads off but still the message cannot get through for all the fluff in the way.
