If Schwarzenegger ever runs for president, I say we nominate Jon Stewart to be his opponent

Jon Stewart recently gave a commencement address at his alma mater (William and Mary), where he received an honorary doctorate:

I am honored to be here and to receive this honorary doctorate. When I think back to the people that have been in this position before me from Benjamin Franklin to Queen Noor of Jordan, I canít help but wonder what has happened to this place. Seriously, it saddens me. As a person, I am honored to get it; as an alumnus, I have to say I believe we can do better.

Read the full text here. (It should be noted that "terror" is, in fact, a noun, despite Jon Stewart's statement to the contrary. I guess he really wasn't that good a student.)

Dude, Jon Stewart talked about a guy masturbating at a commencement speech. He is totally my new hero. (He would have been lynched if he'd given this speech in Baton Rouge....)
