Which is worse:

calling a former US President a war criminal (no, not that one), or dropping atomic bombs on Japan? I would think it is worse to kill over 200,000 people with nuclear weapons.

I don't understand how Jon Stewart has spent the past eight years validly lambasting the second Bush administration for its wrongdoing, yet feels the need to apologize for validly calling someone a war criminal who attacked two cities with nuclear weapons. No other president or country has ever done that. Maybe Jon would feel differently if he had ancestors or family from Nagasaki or Hiroshima who went through that permanent destruction of their homes and lives.

But what do I know? I don't have a late night talk show on a basic cable network.
