    or Bill O'Reilly.  McCain even said "I screwed up" when Letterman got after him for lying about his reason for
    skipping a scheduled performance on the show.  And... Letterman skewered O'Reilly when he tried to justify WMD's as rationale for the illegal invasion of Iraq.  

    Stephen would be freaking awesome.  Stewart?  Not so much.  There's a very conservative side to Stewart.  He's lazy sometimes.   And he very conveniently keeps popping up on O'Reilly's show after their frequent fake "fights".

      about ten years ago, this exchange between O'Reilly and Letterman.

      O'Reilly: Do you even watch my show?
      Letterman: No, but I get the feeling most of it is crap.

      I wouldn't say Jon Stewart has a conservative side, so much as that he's more center-left than anything else, and I sometimes think he puts way too much faith in the whole "both sides are equally bad" thing.

      There certainly are times, such as when he had Erik Prince on recently, that I think he could be harder on his guests.
