Jon Stewart has long tracked the nation’s war on Christmas. And this year he declared war himself. “If there has been a war, Christmas is the aggressor nation,” Stewart said earlier this week. But Stewart has lost his humbug spirit.
“Look how war ages a man,” Stewart said Thursday. On Wednesday, “one of Santa’s unusually large elves fired back” at Stewart: Fox News host Bill O’Reilly responded to Stewart’s segment saying, “There is no question Mr Stewart is going to hell.”
“I know,” Stewart responded, despondently. But! “Here’s what you and your minions don’t understand, O’Reilly: Your hell doesn’t scare me. I make my living watching Fox News eight hours a day. I’m already in hell. Boom! Your move, O’Reilly.”
