Not to get into the habit of posting a video from The Daily Show on a regular basis, but on last night’s show, Jon Stewart and Aasif Manvi had a terrific conversation about the supposed persecution of Christians.  It’s a nice little follow-up to my recent columns about Brit Hume’s attempted religious conversion of Tiger Woods.  The entire video is worth a watch (hell, it’s only 4:40), but if you’re crunched for time, fast-forward to 2:35 for the key bit.

As usual, the Daily Show hits it out of the park.  In last night’s episode, Jon Stewart said everything I was trying to say in last night’s post … only, you know, funnier and more intelligently.  Fast-forward to 6:10 to hear more about one thing I only touched on briefly in my own post: the right-wing’s hypocritical attacks on Obama, which conveniently manage to forget everything they said in the last eight years regarding terrorism.Vodpod videos no longer available.
