QUOTES of the DAY
Stewart throws Carlson a bone (of sorts)
On The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Tuesday night, the host, notoriously at odds with Daily Caller Editor in Chief Tucker Carlson after calling him a ” big d-ck” on CNN’s Crossfire in 2004, complimented him (we think) on his reactions at the recent RNC Candidates Debate in which RNC Chairman Michael Steele made his “best of times, worst of times” War and Peace flub. “How badly does he [Carlson] want to turn to [Americans for Tax Reform Prez] Grover Norquist and go, “Can you f*ing believe this guy?” The clip went on: “Tucker Tucker…hey Tuck Tucker…look at me..hey, Tucker, hey.” After the clip forced Tucker to “look” into the camera, Stewart said, “I know we’ve had our differences, but I have respect for you holding your shit together on that one.”
