Jon Stewart on Tuscon

I don't know if you watch the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. I think from time to time I've posted some of their bits here. Their bread and butter is watching the political scene and the media responses to it and uncovering the absurdity or hypocrisy to be found there.  They lean left, but they're definitely willing to take just about anybody on, including the President. 

Anyway, on Monday night Stewart took off his clown nose for the first ten minutes of the show to talk from the heart about the weekend shootings in Tuscon.  And rather than going for finger pointing or "Is Sarah Palin to blame?", Stewart offered a really sober and I would say profound meditation on our hopes and fears in this country.  Check it out.
