... on Jon Stewart, as he makes Bill Bennett look like a drunken fool on the gay marriage debate. Seriously, that was embarrassing.
My God, watching that, with clearly stated arguments and pinpoint attacks on his opponent's weak positions and logic, as he shreds a man who is twice his age and has spent his life in the pundit business, one has to wonder how Stewart does it even though he's not of those professional politicians with their spin doctors and consultants and carefully prepared position papers.
It's almost as if nothing more than a lifetime of performing comedy had honed his ability to make his point clearly, highlight and ridicule the idiocy of his opponents' argument simultaneously, and do so with a simple emotional resonance so effective his opponent is left helpless to respond.
But that would be NUTS.
Jon Stewart just beat Bill Bennett into wet tissue in a manner none of the professional liberal pundits or politicians who debate him on the chat shows have ever done.
We're out here, candidates. Professional communicators with proven track records. And unlike fucking DLC consultants, we can be bought off with beer and pizza.
