(Newser) – Jon Stewart ended Tuesday’s Sarah Palin slapfest by inviting her on the Daily Show—and last night, he extended another invitation to Glenn Beck. Beck told Today Show host Meredith Vieira yesterday that even in light of the Tucson shootings, he doesn’t regret any violent statements he meant as jokes, and added as justification, “Ask Jon Stewart. Ask The Simpsons.” Responded Stewart, “Glenn, here’s the thing, my man: You don’t have to tell Meredith Vieira to ask me. Ask me yourself!”

“Glenn Beck, I would like you to be on our show … so you can get some things off your chest,” he continued. Knowing he’s likely to be shot down, however, Stewart offered to “sweeten the deal” by giving Beck something he can use on his own show: a five-pronged chalk holder. “Imagine,” Stewart tempted him, “you could get five people connected to George Soros.”
