Newsweek loves marrying Comedy Central liberals and the military -- Stephen Colbert and Iraq made the cover in 2009. In the latest issue, Newsweek touted "Jon Stewart, Live at the USO." Because like Al Franken, liberal comedians like Stewart need to differentiate themselves from the America's-the-real-terrorist leftists and proclaim they love the troops, and hated the commander-in-chief (when he was Republican).
So we're treated to Stewart proclaiming how honored he is to entertain heroes, and how aw, shucks, he's no hero for going overseas to greet the troops. But you know a Bush-hating lecture is coming when the article is headlined "How America's most scathing liberal war critic ended up at the bedside of wounded warriors -- and as outraged as ever."
