    I had never heard of Barton until the interview, and I am thankful that Stewart called this upstate dick to my attention.

    Yes, Stewart was outmatched. Stewart could have easily won his debate point on the Treaty of Tripoli by reading the whole sentence, but he didn't.

    Stewart should have been able to knock down that John Adams Holy Ghost assertion by again reading it in context, but Stewart didn't.

    Stewart could have helped Americans by getting Barton to name the textbooks Barton supposedly edited, but was not credited on, because I'd like to fact check them (and I'd hope some real historians would do so as well).
