Bob Cesca: Okay, yeah, the IRS scandal looks bad and the buck stops with the president. But anyone with a brain in his head and who doesn’t have an ax to grind knows that there’s no way the president could possibly micromanage two guys in the Cincinnati IRS office.
Jon Stewart spent his, what?, third consecutive night ripping the shit out the president. Last night, Stewart said Obama was either Nixon or Mr. Magoo. Nixon if he was involved, and Magoo if he wasn’t. Well that sounds fair.
Look, I know it’s important to maintain cred by occasionally kicking the president in the balls, but after three nights it’s really beginning to look obvious that you’re desperately doing it for cred and not for the patina of fairness.
