My hero

I had some technical problems earlier, so I wasn't able to blog when I wanted to. I had to make due flirting with the cute co-eds who answer the phones Friday nights. I struck out, so I'll show you what Jon Stewart had to say today on Crossfire.

STEWART: Now, this is theater. It's obvious. How old are you? (CROSSTALK) CARLSON: Thirty-five. STEWART: And you wear a bow tie. (LAUGHTER) (APPLAUSE) CARLSON: Yes, I do. I do. STEWART: So this is... CARLSON: I know. I know. I know. You're a... (CROSSTALK) STEWART: So this is theater. CARLSON: Now, let me just... (CROSSTALK) CARLSON: Now, come on. STEWART: Now, listen, I'm not suggesting that you're not a smart guy, because those are not easy to tie. CARLSON: They're difficult. (LAUGHTER) STEWART: But the thing is that this -- you're doing theater, when you should be doing debate, which would be great. BEGALA: We do, do... (CROSSTALK) STEWART: It's not honest. What you do is not honest. What you do is partisan hackery. And I will tell you why I know it. CARLSON: You had John Kerry on your show and you sniff his throne and you're accusing us of partisan hackery? STEWART: Absolutely. CARLSON: You've got to be kidding me. He comes on and you... (CROSSTALK) STEWART: You're on CNN. The show that leads into me is puppets making crank phone calls. (LAUGHTER) STEWART: What is wrong with you? (APPLAUSE) CARLSON: Well, I'm just saying, there's no reason for you -- when you have this marvelous opportunity not to be the guy's butt boy, to go ahead and be his butt boy. Come on. It's embarrassing. STEWART: I was absolutely his butt boy. I was so far -- you would not believe what he ate two weeks ago. (LAUGHTER) (CROSSTALK) STEWART: You know, the interesting thing I have is, you have a responsibility to the public discourse, and you fail miserably. CARLSON: You need to get a job at a journalism school, I think. STEWART: You need to go to one. The thing that I want to say is, when you have people on for just knee-jerk, reactionary talk... CARLSON: Wait. I thought you were going to be funny. Come on. Be funny. STEWART: No. No. I'm not going to be your monkey.
They two things I love the most in this world are Jon Stewart's isightful political commentary and pointing out how stupid Tucker Carlson is. I can die a happy man now. I'll try to post a video soon, because this is just the fucking bomb!
