Jon Stewart on Robert Novak Accusing Him of "Airs of Grandeur"

I'm not going to deny I'm a pompous ass...but "airs of grandeur"?? We couldn't figure out how to appropriately mock "airs of grandeur." Earlier we actually tried rehearsing with a guy in a white powdered wig who walked out with a scroll, but it... felt too real.

To Robert Novak, if you're watching...and I know you're not...I think it's time we buried the hatchet. We need to get together and talk. I know that you're a good person, deep down in your...the thing they replaced your heart with, that pumps the .... I know you have redeeming qualities. For example, when you're on television you let others shine, while you generously absorb all light...and oxygen. When you leave an area, it stops raining. And I know in the past I've referred to you as a...douche-bag, but that's not an "air of grandeur"... that's just mean... and sophomoric. And I only said those things to you because I sincerely believe you're a terrible person.
