    No, I can assure you that the GOP does not see him as their spokesperson since there has been nobody, and I mean nobody who has been tougher on the GOP than Glenn Beck who said not all that long ago that John McCain would have been worse for America in some respects than Barack Obama.

    The difference between Beck and the critics on the left is that Beck criticizes them for real sins, and doesn't deal in partisan sound bites and key words.

    If you guys actually listened to Beck once in awhile--listened for content I mean--instead of being spoonfed what you're supposed to think about him, you might possibly achieve a more accurate perspective.

    Being tough on John McCain is not the same as being tough on the GOP and you know this. . Specially not when you have everyday Republicans on this forum claiming that John McCain is a liberal or a RINO. These is the same Republicans who is trying to get "conservatives" elected in Arizona.

    No. Your argument seriously lacks at best, knowledge of John McCain-GOP relations and at very worst would be dishonest.

    Interesting idea, but it hasn't really worked all that well for a conservative and a liberal to cohost a program like that because it invariably dissolves into a schoolyard kind of did too - did not interchange on every subject. Novak and Kinsley on Crossfire on CNN a few years ago were probably the best I've seen, but even they couldn't draw ratings. And that was before Fox was competing with them. CNN tried several different combinations on the show but eventually discontinuted it.

    Hannity & Colmes on Fox managed to get better ratings, but not at the levels they were shooting for. The fact is, constant left/right bickering-- did too/did not--my daddy is bigger than you daddy--etc.--simply becomes boring to both the left and the right.

    Once Colmes left that show, Hannity shot right to the top of his time slot.

    O'Reilly is the highest rated program on cable and has held that for a long time now. If he took on Stewart as a permanent fixture, I suspect his ratings would soon drop by half.

    I think it would draw a lot of Stewart's liberal viewership to the show. Stewart is very popular, as you no doubt know. Even if it didn't end up working, I'd be interested to see what they would try. I think the hardest thing would be for O'Reilly to get used to Stewart's satirical comedic style.

    Hope Steward calls O'Reilly on his stalking.. but guessing that will be edited out along with anything else damaging to Fox News and O'Reilly.

    His name is Stewart, not Steward. I seriously doubt either would go for personal insults because it would be unprofessional and I believe they respect each other.

    It will also bring a lot conservatives out of the closet where they secretly watch The Daily Show

    I liked this line:

    Bill O'Reilly is going to interview John Stewart in about three minutes on Fox News.

    Should be very entertaining.

    P.S. - I'll take the points if need be.

    It's against my principles to watch news shows on any network except Comedy Central.

That is not a complaint, just a curiosity.
    I noticed that too. They need to get better editors.
