Last Monday, I wrote about former Vice-President Dick Cheney's quote about how the burden that President Barack Obama is leaving for whoever his successor is. Well, actually, I left out the quote, saying that I didn't care, down to the tiniest particle of any known substance...adding that there hasn't been enough gall created since the beginning of time for me to care about what Dick Cheney has to say that's critical of others about the burdens of an Administration left to presidential successors.
It turns out that Jon Stewart had a similar reaction but took the opposite tack. For Stewart, he didn't care either what Dick Cheney had to say, but there were limits, and the former Republican VP had gone after. And so, on Thursday, he responded this way. Magnificently.
Oh, that Stewart fellow will be missed.
