(Newser) – If you've been watching the Daily Show this week, you knew Jon Stewart would weigh in on Cliven Bundy's racist comments, and he got right to it last night, deriding the rancher as a "professor of Negro studies … at Duke University. David Duke University." He then advised Sean Hannity and Fox News to stop promoting Bundy, playing a clip from the network in which Bundy said he was "a bit like the founding fathers." That's true, Stewart said. "But the bit of you that's like our founding fathers is the bit of them that we're ashamed of."

The brief segment seems to put a capper on Stewart's week-long feud with Hannity. In case you missed it, Stewart on Monday took Hannity to task as Bundy's main advocate. Hannity shot back on his show Tuesday, accusing Stewart of being "obsessed" with him, which Stewart readily admitted to the next night, calling Hannity's show "the Arby's of news" because it's "serving up the same [bleep] night after night." Hannity essentially buried the hatchet on his radio show yesterday, Mediaite reports. After denouncing Bundy's comments, Hannity said that Stewart "is extremely talented and funny. … I only wish he would do similar bits on Obama and Democrats."

Jon Stewart is a blithering ignorant lying moron. And not only is he a blithering ignorant lying moron, but he's a COCKSURE blithering ignorant lying moron lacking the ounce of intellectual effort it would take to actually look up the US national debt history, preferring instead to remain a party to the 'common ignorance' who gets his facts from casual hearsay amidst his equally blitheringly ignorant associates And see how Jon's equally ignorant fans laugh in support at his ignorant claims. Themselves too stupid and ignorant to bother looking up the real information and instead just buying whatever some moron their friends like on TV tells them.

His comment's about Aferican American's should still be picking cotton instead of getting on welfare was a real shocker. I think some one needs to tell him the Civil War is over & the yanke's won. just my thought's & yes I am a yankee thank you & Proud to be one.
