The Daily Show's Jon Stewart decided to play quasi-referee between Dick Cheney and John McCain and whether it was fair for the last person who was unqualified to be vice president, but picked himself, to take shots at McCain and his pick of Sarah Palin, who wasn't qualified for the position either.

It was nice to see at least one person asking why the hell anyone is asking Dick Cheney's opinion about anything, given his track record during the last administration.

Stewart couldn't have picked a better couple of grumpy old men to take some shots at than these two, who are both given way too much deference as credible by most of our corporate media.
