Don't get me wrong. I love The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and watch it at first airing most nights. And I realize that part of Jon's schtick is to pretend he is less intelligent and more ignorant than he actually is. But why won't he read Fubarnomics, or at least the chapter on the recent financial crisis? I sent him a copy over the summer and understand that he can't have every author on his show, which airs only 4 nights a week and only like 40 weeks a year. But if he would read it for his own edification, he wouldn't have to submit his audience to long rambling interviews like the one last night (11/16/10) and embarrass himself by positing inane hypotheses.
