Jon Stewart Skewers Newt Gingrich Over Palin's Hypocrisy on Abortion
On September 3, Jon Stewart interviewed Newt Gingrich on the The Daily Show. He asked Gingrich whether it wasn't hypocritical for Sarah Palin to emphasize that her daughter, Bristol, had made her own decision to carry the pregnancy to term. Stewart pointed out that the parents' reference to "Bristol's decision" implied that Bristol had made a free choice, something that Palin would deny to other women facing unplanned pregnancies, even in cases of rape. The whole episode is worth watching; the Gingrich interview is the last segment. The video is available here.
Jon Stewart is my hero. I love his stuff!
