People keep asking me to describe exactly what was so disappointing about Jon Stewart’s interview of Sen. Rick Santorum last night. I’ll do better. Here’s a video of the interview, courtesy of those indefatigable video compilers at Crooks and Liars.

Many people have emailed about this segment. They think Jon was too soft on Santorum.¬† You decide. Usually Jon does goes after these intellectual midgets, but not tonight. What is really sad is that we have to depend on The Daily Show to point out the lunacy in most things instead of the actual¬†news services and when Stewart doesn’t then who is left?
