Jon Stewart - host of The Daily Show on Comedy Central - was guest on CNN Crossfire on Friday. They thought he would be funny as well as plug his book America (The Book) A Citizen's Guide to Democracy Inaction, which is a best seller just now.

Well, he declined to be their monkey. Instead he bitch slapped them. He ripped arch-conservative Tucker Carlson and pseudo liberal Paul Begala. He severely chastised them - and boy does Crossfire ever deserve it. Jon Stewart spoke for me.

You can watch the 13-minute video of his interview on a page here at NwCitizen. You need Quicktime and a high-speed Internet connection - cable or DSL. Allow 2 or 3 minutes for the download before the 35Mb video starts. Go to this page - and be patient. It is worth the wait. Thanks to JM for the clip.

Or - you can read the CNN transcript. His interview starts about 1/3 the way down the page. The transcript is actually a better way to learn what Jon is saying as the "hosts" keep interrupting him on the video.
