A Description of a Really Nice Sausage
Sunday, October 17, 2004
  Huh. Someone actually said it. Jon Stewart was on Crossfire (video torrent) Friday night, and besides calling out Carlson for wearing a bow tie and for being a dick, he confronted the hosts on colluding with established powers by conducting theatrics instead of news and debate. Un-freaking-believable.

Stewart, who looked brutally vulnerable eschewing the smarmy schtick and sticking to principles, still got the best of Carlson repeatedly (Begala, having little of substance to contribute to Stewart, and limiting his smarminess to an early-round crack on Bush, was mostly silent) by A) uprooting Carlson's charge of hypocrisy, B) confounding Carlson's funny-monkey-boy expectation, and C) not reading the play before playing it.

This was refreshing.

It's nice to know that when you feel like being an asshole, there's either a blog or a gun in easy reach.
