Jon Stewart had Gawker's favorite public intellectual Peggy Noonan on The Daily Show last night for a chat that was remarkably civil considering the fact that he spent the whole time systematically undermining pretty much everything Peggy Noonan has written over the past few weeks about Sarah Palin and her virtuous small-town "Nation of Wasillas" blame the rape victim values. "New York is just like hundreds of Wasillas, packed into the same building!" he pointed out. Then he made a big show of saying "bullshit." Just like Peggy did that one time! The best part is the end when Peggy gets all solemn and says of America "Don't bet against us." Ha ha ha, we might if the SEC hadn't outlawed it!
