"Worst Responders"

Earlier in the week, I linked to Jon Stewart's brilliant takedown of the GOP legislative roadblock that's kept all manner of Senate business from getting resolved before the end of the year.  While "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," the START Treaty, and the DREAM Act have all fallen victim to this trend, the most egregious casualty has surely been the Zadroga bill, which would infuse federal money to address the health problems suffered by 9/11 responders.  That a bill like that can't muster the votes necessary to overcome a filibuster is as baffling as it is unconscionable, and while Stewart touched on it on Monday, he devoted the entirety of last night's show, his last of 2010, to the issue.  Check out part one and two below, then part three, the full interview with guest Mike Huckabee, after the jump.

Jon Stewart has always been good at interviewing both Republicans and Democrats. In June 2009, Jon Stewart had Mike Huckabee on his show to discuss the abortion issue. Instead of calling a Truce, they sat down and found common ground. More talk show hosts need to take their cues from Jon Stewart's interviewing style.
