PS-Jon Stewart on the Air Quotes
Earlier in the week, I mentioned Samantha Bee’s excellent take on John McCain’s air quotes around women’s “health.” Last night, Daily Show host Jon Stewart also mentioned it in an interview with conservative Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol.
Kristol asked, “Do you really think McCain is the same as Bush and Cheney?”
Stewart’s response: “Listen, I have great fondness and affection for John McCain. I would have voted for him if he had made it against Gore, quite frankly, in 2000. The guy that I see now, putting air quotes around women’s health, and doing all the things that he does, I don’t know what that is. And if that’s a strategy that’s disingenuous from how he really thinks, then my opinion of him is even lower.”
If you watch the standalone Kristol segment on the Daily Show site, this portion begins around 5:38.
