IT MAY BE A STRAW MAN, BUT IT'S STILL SATISFYING

While beating up on Bill Bennett isn't exactly difficult or something to brag about, this video of Jon Stewart ripping the corpulent gambling addict a new cornhole over gay marriage is one of the best things you'll ever see. Unfortunately this clip doesn't capture the money shot – Bennett says "This debate is over" and Stewart responds "Yes, and you lost."

Zing.

    The money shot is in this video, but it's kinda muffled and hard to hear.

    The best part of that comment, however, is that Bennett is basically conceding on gay marriage and Stewart basically twists the knife by adding "and you lost." Brilliant.

    Why is it that Jon Stewart can talk circles around people like Bill Bennett, but "mainstream journalists" let these conservative talking heads dominate?

    I think people like Jon Stewart enter the argument with the full understanding that the talking head in question is a complete idiot. Mainstream media sources invite these people on their shows and treat them as journalists or political analysts. Therefore they're taken off guard when said talking head launches into a rant, and in the name of the decorum befitting the mainstream media the host usually holds back.
