    FYI, typo correction: Jon Stewart is the sometimes-clown, sometimes-journalist (when it’s convenient for him) on Comedy Central, John Stewart is a Green Lantern.

    Thanks for linking my post, Wombat! I was able to tweet the link to today’s Live at Five right before Twitter broke. I wonder if my LAF TOM Tweet caused an #awesome overload which is what made teh twitterz ‘splode?

     I never watch either of them, so how would I know? Thanks for catching that.

  • Wombat_socho

     I thought people needed to know, and it’s a good summation of what that jerk has one to others in the past.

  • Finrod Felagund

    You’re welcome.  I used to watch Jon Stewart until he spent the 5th anniversary of 9/11 tossing cheap slams at Republicans.  Haven’t watched him since.
