    during the routine as he noticed bush's reaction. I linked article in earlier comment... the Atlantic reported what Steven said in 2009 on a panel discussion at Chicago Second City

    Also talked about Scalia being one of only people to approach him after it and telling him he was brilliant and  

    "I said, oh, s-, don't let me like Antonin Scalia!"
    That night really shifted my view of him too

    Honestly his criticism of Obama is much sharper and more on target than Stewart's. Daily Show goes for easy laugh sort of and might mock something taken way out of context
    Steven cuts to the bone but illuminates with it.
    He also mocks away the undue criticism of him very well.
    Just so sharp

    At the start I doubted I'd even watch the show much.
