Just found this on Fark: a transcript of Jon Stewart on today's "Crossfire". Fucking brilliant. Stewart/Colbert in 2012!!!

----------------------------------

STEWART: You know, the interesting thing I have is, you have a responsibility to the public discourse, and you fail miserably.

CARLSON: You need to get a job at a journalism school, I think.

STEWART: You need to go to one.

----------------------------------

CARLSON: I do think you're more fun on your show. Just my opinion.

(CROSSTALK)

CARLSON: OK, up next, Jon Stewart goes one on one with his fans...

(CROSSTALK)

STEWART: You know what's interesting, though? You're as big a dick on your show as you are on any show.

----------------------------------

STEWART: It's not honest. What you do is not honest. What you do is partisan hackery. And I will tell you why I know it.

CARLSON: You had John Kerry on your show and you sniff his throne and you're accusing us of partisan hackery?

STEWART: Absolutely.

CARLSON: You've got to be kidding me. He comes on and you...

(CROSSTALK)

STEWART: You're on CNN. The show that leads into me is puppets making crank phone calls.

I just watched the video clip on iFilm
I love Jon Stewart.

I'm all fired up, now. Last night I saw Farenheit 911 and I am suddenly aware of how important people like Jon Stewart and Michael Moore are to this country - having the guts to say what you think is THE most important thing in times like these.

Thanks for posting this!
