Jon Stewart vs. Bill O’Reilly

Last night’s Daily Show interview was a hell of a boxing match.

In the left corner, Jon Stewart: a jabber and a weaver, quick on his feet, doesn’t pack a lot of power but can kill you with an uppercut.

In the right corner, Bill O’Reilly: powerful, intimidating; but slow, and helpless if he can’t set his feet for that renowned roundhouse.

Stewart, in his home ring, had the advantage. He set the tempo, and never let O’Reilly roll. He kept the bigger man off balance — ducking, moving, faking, then a stinging left-right, and another, and ANOTHER!

No knockout. The fight was only two rounds.

But a clear winner: Stewart by unanimous decision.
