Jon Stewart on Repub punditry on Qadhafi:

Is there no one — is there no Republican — that can be gracious and statesman-like in this situation? We removed a dictator in six months, losing no American soldiers — spending, like, a billion┬ádollars instead of, say, a trillion dollars, and engendering what appears to be good will to people now who have a prideful story of their own independence to tell (not to mention oil, they have oil!)…is there no one who will give credit where credit is due?!
