Better Him Than Me

Jon Stewart did an extensive interview with Marc Thiessen, the former speechwriter for George W. Bush, Washington Post columnist, torture enabler, and defender of witch-hunting. It’s in three parts, and it’s a scary insight into the bland and blase mindset of the people who ran this country for eight years and didn’t really seem to think that screwing over the rule of law and the Constitution was all that bad.

Frankly I admire Jon Stewart for keeping his cool and not climbing over the desk and showing him his own version of enhanced interrogation. And I also wonder why such a good interviewer is working on Comedy Central while the Village People like David Gregory are doing Meet the Press. Oh, that liberal media.
