Bill O'Reilly has been blaming Mitt Romeny's sound defeat in the November 6 election to the fall of what he has been calling 'traditional America.'

But according to Towleroad ,The Daily Show's Jon Stewart has news for O'Reilly. It wasn't so long ago that traditional Americans had no respect for people with surnames names like O'Reilly.

Then Stewart offered O’Reilly some perspective, telling him not to worry about the results  because 'America’s greatest tradition' is a 'frightened ruling class lamenting the rise of a new ethnically and religiously diverse new class.'

In fact, Stewart said, every generation rises in the United States in order to give themselves and their children the opportunity to 'sh*t on the next group' to show up.

It remains to be seen if O'Reilly will take heart.
