The Web seems to be abuzz with talk about Jon Stewart’s appearance on Crossfire today. Wonkette has the details. You can download the episode via BitTorrent here if you missed it like I did.

Update: I just downloaded the segment and watched it, and I found it mostly sad. I think Jon Stewart found it pretty sad as well. He couldn’t get the clowns on Crossfire to even engage him in a substantive discussion about what it means to have a substantive discussion. Most awful was Tucker Carlson’s attempts to play gotcha with Stewart with regard to his John Kerry interview. Stewart had plenty of good lines, but he seemed deeply pained by the whole experience, and I felt pained by it as well. Oh, and Tucker Carlson is a clown.
