The good thing about being on TV is you're on TV. The bad thing is there are 20-year-old clips of you being on TV.

Back in 1995, Jon Stewart worked for MTV. He also took to the stage at an Earth Day rally on the National Mall to wear stone-washed mom jeans, bad sunglasses and a backwards hat, while calling Bob Dole a "cantankerous old fart."

The '90s were a confusing time. Thankfully, C-SPAN was there to document it.

If that guy can become Jon-Stewart Jon Stewart, there's hope for all of us.

(Side note: The snark up top does not give people the right to look up any of The Fix's team's first appearances on C-SPAN.)
