Can someone please alert Jon Stewart to the fact that Rachel Maddow, yunno, plays for 'the other team' esp. as he continues to make an ass of himself kissing the Keith Olbermann wannabee's ass:
Jon Stewart likes to scream at video of President Bush, but when the radical left arrives on the set, it’s all hearts and flowers. Stewart interviewed MSNBC wild woman Rachel Maddow on Wednesday, and he was so gooey and positive, it sounded like he was going to ask for a date. He began: "Our pleasure to have you. Congratulations on your well-deserved success. It's a lovely program and yours is a lovely voice to have out there on the air." It’s "lovely"? Then he told Maddow she was like the pretty blond woman character on The Munsters:
STEWART: Did you ever see The Munsters?
MADDOW: Oh yeah.
STEWART: Here's what I think when I watch MSNBC. You're Marilyn.
MADDOW: Thank you. Okay.
STEWART: But everyone else over there is f—ing nuts. Now I'm not going to tell you who Herman Munster is, But I will tell you I believe Chris Matthews is the dragon who lives under the stairs.
Later, he returned to the compliments:
This is what I find interesting about your program is that the tone of it seems very different. Now, I didn't know if that was a purposeful response to other shows, but it's clearly not, you're just maybe – uh, likable.
Maddow replied that she tries to be original, that "there's a right way to do things and I don't want to know what the right way is to do things so that it will be original." This would come as a surprise to most viewers, since to many, she seems like the Mini-Keith. She may not have Olbermann’s basso-profundo pomposity, but the flame-throwing ideological approach is awfully similar. But Stewart can’t stop treating Maddow like she’s the second coming of Dick Cavett:
