    Torture thrillist Marc Thiessen's book tour brought him to the set of "The Daily Show" last night, where he was basically eaten alive by Jon Stewart in a contentious interview that ended with Thiessen being the first guest in memory to actually whine about the way the interview went.

      Jon told him that they would extend the interview and post in the web and Thiessen didn't seem to understand what that meant.  As if the idea of there being a limited amount of time on air to make room for advertising dollars was foreign to him.  He really seemed to think that Jon was somehow infringing on his 1st Amendment rights or something.

      And really, all he did with his extended time was continue to repeat the same talking points and drive conversation in circles.  You could tell at the end with Jon's exasperation that he was just glad it was over.
