Jon Stewart was on CNN's Crossfire yesterday. Now, I wouldn't have known about this, because I don't seem to watch anything other than home improvement shows and college football (and Presidential debates, and The Daily Show, and that's it) on TV. But my brother was kind enough to post audio and video files of the appearance. It was brutal. Stewart horsewhipped Tucker Carlson and Paul Begala on their own show and made them like it. Well, maybe they didn't like it. I didn't notice them laughing along with the audience. Carlson in particular seemed offended. But I thought it was funny, and so did the live audience, and it had the added benefit of publicly eviscerating Carlson and Begala in an incredibly direct way.
The Fool played a time-honored role in history, being the only person who could speak unvarnished truth to the King, using humor to make his point. Jon Stewart is a Fool of the highest order.
