Scott McClellan, Jon Stewart, and The Accidental War

Reason's Radley Balko writes "The bad news is that Jon Stewart isn't all that funny anymore. The good news is, he may be the best serious interviewer on television. I don't know of anyone who has been better or more consistent than Stewart when it comes to cutting through the bullshit as these ex-Bush administration officials do the talk show circuit to promote their books."

I agree completely. Jon Stewart just isn't as funny anymore compared to the consistent laughs--or 'LOLs' as the kids call them-- I get from watching Stephen Colbert afterwards (case in point... Colbert's segment on McClellan last night), but damn does this guy not like being bullshitted. Between this and the Doug Feith interview from last month, Jon's on a roll.

The interview basically went like this... Stewart: "So Bush fucked up?" / McClellan: "Yes, but he didn't mean to." / Stewart: "Yes, he did."

Watch, and enjoy, for yourself-
