One of the best things about getting a lunch around 11 o'clock was being able to listen to the Huckster go to great lengths to graciously concede the election, while flipping to Rush blowing stem out of his ears.
I think Huckabee actually handled it as gracefully as he could...but Stewart brought the heat.
Stewart is a top-flight interviewer, informed, passionate without getting histrionic, and most importantly not letting subjects lie or obfuscate. Usually.
"Lying slimeball" seems a bit harsh to me. Good interview regardless. You can always count on Stewart to take his subjects to task.
It just seems pointless to me to interview someone if you're just going to give him a pass when he starts talking about God this and the Bible that. It's a millennia-old story book about a hideously insecure war god, and yet it's somehow taboo to criticize people for taking it completely seriously.
I hear you, but a lying slimeball in my mind is someone who's willfully deceitful and malevolent. Maybe I'm naive, but I just don't see that in this guy at all. I'm with Cena - I think he's a misguided but fundamentally good human being. Dick Morris is a lying slimeball, Karl Rove is a lying slimeball, Donald Trump is a lying slimeball... Mike Huckabee, not so much.
A Daily Show embedded link that works!!
I decided to provide the canadian link:
rather than one-starring this crappy border-walled video source again.
Huckabee is a theocrat Christian terrorist, why is he being spoken to? Every time a Christian isn't alienated, the world dies in horror a little more.
Jon Stewart is a planet murdering fascist enabler.

I know that's a big suit, but I'm still surprised they managed to stuff such a huge sack of shit in it.
