With luck, we’ll get John Oliver and all will be well. (And Jon Stewart won’t, like, disappear. He’ll find ways to be relevant.) But while we have him, watch this. For days now it’s be making me crazy how overblown the reaction’s been to the VA Secretary’s attempt to connect with that homeless vet. Even the Secretary’s apology, I thought, while warranted, was overblown, unduly abject. Well, as usual, Jon Stewart — and seemingly only Jon Stewart — just nails it. And makes the real point here.
