>> Jon: WELCOME TO THE DAILY

SHOW.

MY NAME IS JON STEWART.

WHAT A GUEST WE HAVE FOR YOU

TONIGHT.

ASTROPHYSICIST IS GOING TO BE

JOINING US.

ASTRO PHYSICIAN...

ASTROPHYSICIST.

BUT FIRST, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN, SOME MUCH NEEDED

GOOD NEWS OUT OF TUCSON.

THE VICTIM IS MAKING A

MIRACULOUSLY RECOVERY AND IS

NOW APPARENTLY SITTING UPRIGHT

AND COMMUNICATING.

JOINING ME TONIGHT FROM AL

ALASKA IS GOVERNOR SARAH PALIN.

>> THANKS, JON.

>> Jon: I'M SORRY.

A BIT OF A MISDIRECT.

WASN'T IT?

ACTUALLY A LOT OF THE CREDIT

FOR MRS. PALIN'S RECOVERY

AFTER SHE WAS UNFAIRLY LINKED

TO THE SHOOTINGS HAS TO GO TO

HER NURSE SEAN HANNITY WHO IT

WAS CLEAR FROM LAST NIGHT'S

INTERVIEW WAS READY TO UPGRADE

PALIN'S VICTIM STATUS FROM

INNOCENT TO JOAN OF ARC.

>> WHAT DID YOU THINK ABOUT

THE CRITICS?

WHY DO YOU THINK YOU WERE

SINGLED OUT AND THE LEFT

SINGLED YOU OUT?

YOU SPECIFICALLY SAID WHEN

THESE WAR TERMS ARE USED THIS

IS NOT A CALL FOR VIOLENCE.

ALL OF THAT WAS IGNORED BY THE

MEDIA.

DOES THAT FRUSTRATE YOU?

I DON'T THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE

ON THE LEFT HAVE BEEN VERY

CIVIL TOWARDS YOU OVER THE

YEARS.

I REALLY DON'T HEAR YOU

COMPLAINING A LOT ABOUT IT.

>> Jon: YOU DON'T?

REALLY?

YOU DON'T HEAR HER COMPLAINING

ABOUT IT?

YOU SHOULD MAYBE WATCH HER

WHEN SHE APPEARS ON THE SHOW,

ON THE SEAN HANNITY SHOW

BECAUSE IT'S HARD TO SEE

THROUGH ALL THE PLUMES OF ASS

SMOKE YOU'RE BLOWING.

BUT IS IT HARD TO HEAR TOO?

BECAUSE WATCHING THE TWO OF

YOU INSISTING ON HER EASY-GOING

NATURE REMINDS ME OF TAKING MY

GRANDMOTHER OUT TO EAT.

YOU KNOW ME.

I'M EASY.

I'M NOT A COMPLAINER.

IS IT COLD IN HERE?

YOU WOULD THINK AT THESE

PRICES THEY'D SHUT A WINDOW.

NOT THAT THE GOVERNOR DIDN'T

HAVE A VALID COMPLAINT.

>> IN A SITUATION LIKE WE HAVE

JUST FACED IN THESE LAST EIGHT

DAYS OF BEING FALSELY ACCUSED,

OF BEING ACCESSORY TO MURDER I

AND OTHERS NEED TO MAKE SURE

THAT WE TOO ARE SHEDDING TRUTH,

SHEDDING LIGHT ON TRUTH.

LIVES WERE LOST.

PEOPLE WERE INJURED.

A CRAZED GUNMAN THAT I AND YOU

AND OTHERS HAD NOTHING TO DO

WITH INFLUENCING HIM.

HE IS THE SOLE PERSON I

BELIEVE TO BLAME IN THIS.

>> Jon: CORRECT.

I AGREE WITH GOVERNOR PALIN.

THAT IS TOTALLY FAIR.

IN THE IMMEDIATE AFTER MATH OF

THE TRAGEDY IT WAS UNDULY AND

UNNECESSARILY POLITICIZED.

GOVERNOR, ARE YOU HAPPY?

NOW LOSE ME.

IN THE SAME INTERVIEW,

REFERRING TO THE GUNMAN THIS

WAY.

>> AN APOLITICAL OR PERHAPS

EVEN LEFT-LEANING CRIMINAL WHO

KILLED THESE INNOCENTS.

>> Jon: WHAT?

DO YOU SEE WHAT YOU DID RIGHT

THERE?

DID YOU SEE IT?

THERE MUST BE A WORD FOR

COMPLAINING VOCIFEROUSLY ABOUT

A WRONG BEING DONE TO YOU

WHILE CASUALLY COMMITTING SAID

WRONG YOURSELF WITH NO

AWARENESS.

IF IT'S NOT A WORD LET'S COME

WITH UP.

LET'S CALL IT AN ANCHORAGE

STEAMER.

WAIT, NO.

HOLD ON.

A PALIN-DROME.

HERE'S ANOTHER ONE.

HERE'S ANOTHER ONE.

IN THE INTERVIEW, IN THE

INTERVIEW, GOVERNOR PALIN WAS

RIGHTLY ANNOYED THAT PEOPLE

READ INTO HER CROSS HAIRS MAP

AND HER DON'T RETREAT RELOAD

STATEMENTS AS AN ATTEMPT TO

INCITE.

>> WELL, I HAVE REPEATED OVER

AND OVER MY CONDEMNATION OF

VIOLENCE AND SPECIFICALLY

TRYING TO EXPLAIN THAT WHEN WE

TALK ABOUT BEING UP IN ARMS

WE'RE TALKING ABOUT GET TO GO

THE VOTING BOOTH.

BUT THAT WAS FRUSTRATING.

>> Jon: YOU SEE?

SHE'S FRUSTRATED.

IT'S FRUSTRATING TO SARAH

PALIN TO HAVE PEOPLE ASCRIBE

OVERWHELMINGLY NEGATIVE

MOTIVATIONS TO HER INNOCENT

ACTIONS.

AND THAT'S UNDERSTANDABLE.

BY THE WAY, WHY DID PEOPLE

LINK HER TO THE SHOOTING IN

TUCSON?

HERE COMES THE CARIBOU BALL

SWITCH HE WILL.

>> THOSE ON THE LEFT HATE MY

MESSAGE.

THEY'LL DO ALL THAT THEY CAN

TO STOP ME.

THERE ARE MANY ON THE LEFT,

MANY CRITICS WHO DON'T WANT,

FOR INSTANCE, CONGRESS TO

BUCKLE DOWN, GET BACK TO WORK.

THERE'S THIS TRIFECTA THING

GOING ON IN OUR COUNTRY RIGHT

NOW THAT IS GOING TO BRING

AMERICA TO HER KNEES.

>> Jon: DO YOU SEE WHAT JUST

HAPPENED THERE?

YOUR CRITICS AREN'T MOTIVATED

BY A SINCERE BELIEF IN THE

CORROSIVE NATURE OF YOUR

RECEIPT I CAN, THEY MUST ONLY

SEE AMERICA BROUGHT TO HER

KNEES AND DO ANYTHING TO KEEP

THEIR FOOT ON THE NECK OF

AMERICA.

THEY ARE WORKING DESPERATELY

TO GET AMERICA TO TAP OUT AND

BE AWKWARDLY INTERVIEWED

AFTERWARDS BY JOE ROGAN.

IS IT POSSIBLE, GOVERNOR, THAT

YOU HAVE BECOME A LIGHTNING

ROD LESS FOR YOUR CLARITY OF

VISION BUT MORE FOR YOUR

ABILITY TO TURN ANY CRITICISM

OF YOU INTO PERSECUTION OF

YOU?

WHILE STILL VERY CASUALLY

BEING ABLE TO DISMISS A PRETTY

LARGE PORTION OF AMERICA.

>> THOSE ON THE LEFT, IF IT

WEREN'T FOR THEIR DOUBLE

STANDARD, THEY'D HAVE NO

STANDARDS.

>> Jon: SOMEONE HAS A NEW

CAMPAIGN SLOGAN.

I MEAN, DO YOU SEE IT AT ALL?

WHICH PERHAPS BRINGS ME TO MY

FAVORITE PART OF LAST NIGHT'S

PALIN AND HANNITY VICTORY HOUR

SPECIAL.

THE AUTHOR OF TWO BEST SELLING

BOOKS, A HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER

AND PAID SPEAKER, A REALITY

SHOW STAR, FACE BOOK TWITTER

ADDICT AND COMMENTATOR THAT

GOT A NEWS NETWORK TO BUILD

HER HER OWN STUDIO IN HER

HOUSE DEFIANTLY SAYS SHE WILL

NOT BE SILENCED.

>> THEY'RE NOT GOING TO SHUT

ME UP.

THEY CAN'T MAKE US SIT DOWN

AND SHUT UP.

>> Jon: THERE'S NO FORM OF

COMMUNICATION YOUR VIEWS DON'T

COME FROM.

I'M AFRAID TO TURN ON MY HAM

RADIO.

OR WATCH YOUR NEW SHOW.

IN FACT, FROM WHAT I CAN TELL,

NOT ONLY DO PEOPLE WANT YOU TO

SHOW UP AND TALK, THEY'RE

BEGGING YOU TO SHOW UP.

YOU'RE THE ONE WHO REFUSES TO

GO ON ALL THESE OUTLETS THAT

KEEP ASKING YOU TO JOIN THEM

FOR A CONVERSATION.

BY THE WAY I'M NO DIFFERENT.

JOIN ME.

I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A

CONVERSATION WITH YOU.

MY STUDIO.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

WE'LL DO IT IN MY STUDIO.

YOUR WILDERNESS UTOPIA.

YOU COULD HAVE GLEN BECK SIT

NEXT TO US OR IN BETWEEN US.

I WANT HIM TO COME ON TOO.

HE WON'T DO IT EITHER.

I PROMISE A PLEASANT,

RESPECTFUL AND CLASSY

CONVERSATION.

IT'S ALL PART OF OUR NEW

SEGMENT.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )
