Flunking out of the Jon Stewart school of rhetoric.
Once upon a time on The Daily Show, when the Michael Jackson child molestation trial was in full bloom, host Jon Stewart reported that, earlier that day during the trial, the Jackson defense team had called as a witness former child movie star Macaulay Culkin, who testified that he had slept in Jackson's bed and had never been molested.
At which point, Stewart paused and looked at the camera as only he can and said (and I'm paraphrasing), "So ... you're on trial on multiple charges of child molestation, and your best defense is to tell the court, 'Hey ... come on ... there are some children I didn't molest!'"
And on that note, submitted without further comment.
