Jon Stewart looked at Dick Cheney and Barack Obama's back-to-back national security speeches last night and the media's boner over the easily juxtaposable news events. Former VP Cheney gave a hawkish speech at the American Enterprise Institute, full of the familiar rhetoric of post-9/11 war-mongering, while President Obama gave a more tempered speech, despite the fact that he kept quoting Bush.
Stewart mocked the media for their metaphors as he showed clips of MSNBCers comparing the two to boxers and Bill Kristol invoking "Star Wars" then saying he sides with Darth Vader. He then dissected the two speeches and engaged in a faux debate with Cheney. We're pretty sure Stewart won, but the former vice president's approval ratings are on the rise.
