After watching Lawrence O'Donnell angrily interview an empty chair Monday night after George Zimmerman's lawyer bolted from the interview, Jon Stewart could barely contain his glee. "He's grilling the chair! No, the chair doesn't have medical records to show you, it's a chair!" Stewart said last night. "You know, I live in New York City, I see a lot of people yelling at chairs. None of them have TV shows!"
He found that after about 10 minutes of viewing, he "started feeling badly … for the chair." What to do? Why, bring on the chair's lawyer, Fan, for a counter-interview. A great idea, except, Stewart discovered, "even I can't sustain this bit."
