Bill Kristol was on "A Daily Show"* last night, and he declared that George Bush will be "a happy ex-president." When asked why, he provided a list of reasons that can best be summed up with exact quotes:
- "the war in Iraq is going to end up being vindicated"
- "the economy's been pretty good"
- "Alito and Roberts are excellent"
Responding to Kristol's claims that Iraq will be democratic and free, Stewart said, "I understand why you feel like you have to say that a lot to yourself, because if I had suggested going in there ten years ago and it turned out this way, I'd feel [expletive] too."
Other highlights include Kristol and Stewart sparring on Anbar and Kristol's admission that "I try to be [human] once every few months."
*"The Daily Show" should resume tonight with the end of the writers' strike, bringing an end to Stewart's writer-free "A Daily Show."
