"I'm not gonna be your monkey."

If you haven't seen it yet, then run, don't walk, over to iFilm and check out Jon Stewart's appearance on Crossfire. It's 15 minutes of some of the most awkward television you'll ever see, but it's grand and glorious and funny and nearly every word out of Stewart's mouth really needed to be said.

Stewart seems to chafe at the very idea of the role he seems to be assuming in the political discourse of our nation, but it's very easy to see how he got there: he says the things about the system that Joe and Betty Average-American-With-Moderate-To-Liberal-Views would like to say, and he's got the forum in which to do so.
