      • Jon Stewart: That's right people, Iraq and Al Qaeda working together with weapons of mass destruction. People, finally, Iraq has become the country we thought it was when we invaded it! Cheers to us! I knew we could do it.

      • Jon Stewart: Presidential historian Michael Beschloss will be right here to discuss presidential courage, and what has apparently happened to it.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Jon Stewart: The Vice President put on his Sunday kevlar best and arrived in Baghdad under cover of darkness. Now I know it appeared to be in the middle of the day, but Cheney as you know, always brings his own cover of darkness. He's like Pigpen, but instead of dirt, followed by an intangible void.

        Pigpen was a character in Charles Schulz's "Peanuts" comic strip. His nickname referred to the cloud of dust that permanently floated around his head.
