Friday Night (Bright) Lights

Jon Stewart's opening segment on rare Friday night edition of "The Daily Show" was single best shot at RNC on any cable or network show this week.  Yes, covered Clint--"The Old Man and the Seat"--but also the convention in general.  Jon really lost it over Romney's claim that he had wished Obama to succeed.  "Bull-fucking-shit!" he shouted.  Read full summary and watch video via Mediaite here.

Was quite a charged moment earlier tonight when Dinesh D'Souza, fresh from a hit doc ripping Obama, appeared as Bill Maher's chief interview guest tonight.  They battled over this and that but the surprise was Maher raising what has apparently bugged him for a decade now.

Remember when he nearly got blacklisted for commenting that, whatever else you may say about them, the 9/11 hijackers were "brave"? Well, it turns out (if I understand it correctly) that Maher was referencing a similar remark that had just been made on his old show--namely, Dinesh D'Souza.  And, according to Maher, D'Souza never did come to his defense afterward.  Anyway,  again from Mediaite, here's a longer summary and the video.
