Dick, Thy Name Was Tucker Carlson

CNN Official Transcripts:

Tucker Carlson: "I do think you're more fun on your show. Just my opinion."

Jon Stewart: "You know what's interesting, though? You're as big a dick on your show as you are on any show."

Rachel Maddow has doubled the audience for a cable news channel's 9 p.m. hour in a matter of days. Maddow has made MSNBC competitive in that time slot for the first time in a decade. The channel at that hour has an average viewership of 1.7 million since she started on Sept. 8, compared with 800,000 before.

I, for one, welcome our new liberal overlords.

Three cheers for John Stewart!

Rachel Maddow is phenomenal. She is sooo smart--it is fun to watch her confidence grow and her style evolve. Rach has a real gift for getting at the truth, providing some perspective and doing it in a way that leaves me feeling like we might just get through all this crap somehow if we just keep our wits about us and a sense of humor. What a huge relief to be spared the drama, shouting, sniping, rudeness and bullshit of the other commentary shows! If I didn't think her highest and best use was to keep tabs on the powers that be, I'd love to see her as Obama's White House Press Secretary. Those would be press conferences worth watching!
