Jon Stewart is often at his best not when he's mocking the President or discussing Iraq, but when he's taking on the press. On Monday night's show, he did a bit on Time Magazine's Person of the Year for 2006. In case you haven't noticed it on the newsstands, this year's magazine has a mirror on it. Ostensibly the Person of the Year is you... or all of us. Clever, huh? In this clip, Stewart lambastes Time both for copping out and for taking itself too seriously.

If you've got some extra time on your hands (and presumably you do since you're reading this web site), it's also worth watching Stewart's interview with Iowa Governor and Democratic presidential candidate Tom Vilsack. In the interview, Vilsack tells Stewart that we need to end Iraq's culture of dependency on the U.S. What? We're barely able to keep Iraq from an all-out civil war. Where's the dependency? I don't get it and neither does Stewart.

The interview with Bill Kristol on Tuesday is also worth watching. Stewart just goes off on him and barely gives him any time to speak. It was unfair, but still funny.

All of these videos are available on the Daily Show website.
