Jon Stewart does Teh Pantload

Damn! I'm probably going to miss this. Jonah Goldberg, plugging his book cover filled with paper, showed up on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
NEW YORK Columnist Jonah Goldberg stopped by Comedy Central's "Daily Show" on Wednesday night to tout his provocative new book, "Liberal Fascism." Jon Stewart clearly didn't buy the premise, asking at one point in exasperation, "Organic food is fascist???" and "I must say you totally misrepresent what progressive means."

Apparently the taping went on so long, and with so many nuggets, that (as Stewart had warned) some of it had to be aired in choppy sound bites.

Most touchy moment for Jonah came when Stewart asked him if one of the things he was against was people throwing around the charge "fascism" far too easily. Jonah said yes, then Stewart picked up a copy of the book and simply pointed to the title, "Liberal Fascism" -- adding, so why are you doing this?

Goldberg got angry at one point and accused Stewart of not reading his book.
Hopefully I'll be able to catch it on the Daily Show website tomorrow.
