On his show Tuesday night, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart joked that the theme for the Republican National Convention — “We Built This” — was a tribute to the union workers who built the state-funded Tampa Bay Times Forum. He also lampooned the media’s histrionic fear of Tropical Storm Isaac, which briefly delayed the RNC.
