Jon Stewart needs to give himself the lectures

In one of his frequent fits of hypocrisy, Jon Stewart hurled the F bomb at Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin during a talk to a college audience in Boston, Mass. last Friday.  Granted it was in response to a stupid--and undoubtedly unintentional--gaffe on the part of Palin, but it's hard to figure how Stewart's very intentional obscenity contributed anything meaningful to the discussion.

The incident would be unremarkable if it weren't for the fact that this is the same guy who showed up on Crossfire a while back and gave Tucker Carlson a lecture on demeaning the public discourse.

Jon Stewart is hardly a blip on my conceited liberal-ometer these days.

Keith Olbermann, on the other hand, went on a tirade about the uncivility and rancor of political discourse from the Right these days.

What's next? Frito-Lay complaining about foods with empty calories?

This is the guy who has a regular feature entitled, "The World's Worst Person," in which someone is excoriated for the egregious sin of disagreeing with Keith Olbermann.

Healer, heal thyself.
