This was a great interview last night. As soon as I heard he was coming on all I could think was “Oh my… this will be interesting.” An ultra-conservative guy who has been one of the main architects of the Bush administrations blundering foreign policy on a very liberal comedy show. This is a recipe for success!
Anyways, at the end I felt kind of unsatisfied. Not because the interview wasn’t great, but because I would have loved to see Jon have a real debate with this guy. In that sense, the Daily Show format is sort of limiting because Jon has to keep it funny. Several times during the interview Jon hit him with some very serious topic, but then had to throw in a joke to keep it light.
Hopefully they will post this interview on http://www.comedycentral.com/dailyshow
