Fuck you Tony.

Just watched the Daily Show, where Tony Blair decided to lecture Jon Stewart on how the world changed on September 11th, 2001. The Daily Show studios are not too far from the still-gaping hole of ground zero, and the pompous ass decided that Stewart really just didn't understand how important 9/11 was, and why it meant we had to invade Iraq.

Stewart's response was more polite than mine was. Also, less likely to lead to headlines, "Former UK PM bludgeoned to death on basic cable."

Yeah, I saw that. It made me want to hit something. Blair was talking in soundbites and when he made the 9/11 comment I saw Stewart's expression change and I thought I heard a gasp in the audience. How Stewart could remain calm in the face of that astounds me. I guess he's just that good, but part of me wonders if he's holding out hope that if he plays his cards right he'll be able to get Bush on the other side of that desk.
