The Electric Commentary

"Politically nuanced debate shows"

Jon Stewart appeared on CNN's Crossfire on Friday and finally called them out. He said everything I've ever wanted to say to the hosts of the various debate shows, and then some. You can view his Crossfire appearance here -- it's an absolute must. You can also view Stewart's reflection on the confrontation during Monday's "Daily Show" here.

The fact that Carlson and Begala attempt to pick on Stewart for not asking "pointed" questions of Kerry highlights the amazing amount of legitimacy the Daily Show actually commands. And Stewart has a great comment regarding Tucker Carlson's bowtie. Great stuff.

  • That has to be the best television I've ever seen not on television. I like that we called Carlson a "dick" after he insulted Stewert's performance and then tried to cut away.

  • That was awesome, and I've finally watched it now. The transcript doesn't do it justice. I wish Stewart would have "mistakenly" referred to him as "Carlson Daly." Next time.
