Fake news, fake leadership: Jon Stewart on George W. Bush

Jon Stewart was once again in fine form tonight, post-Katrina, his characteristic blend of irony, sarcasm, and self-deprecation bolstered by a somewhat uncharacteristic, if much appreciated, intimation of anger, frustration, and disgust -- not enough to overwhelm the humour, but just enough to lend weight and perspective to his "fake news" truth-telling in the wake of horrific tragedy and inexcusable incompetence.

Click here for Comedy Central's Daily Show page, here for some recent videos. "Inarguable Failure" and "Bush's Timeline" are, to say the least, highly recommended.
