The Left’s clown prince, Jon Stewart, “took on” UC Berkeley law professor/former Bush DOJ official John Yoo on Monday. Yoo has just published “Crisis and Command” — a thorough, compelling history of the use of executive power by America’s presidents from Washington to Bush. Yoo has been demonized by the nutroots and stalked at his home by Berserkeleyites. He has earned the respect of colleagues and students who are actually committed to an open, honest, rigorous academic environment — in contrast to the clown prince-wannabes who regularly disrupt his classes and have demanded his firing.

When he’s given more than 30 seconds to speak, Yoo’s scholarly command of history — coupled with calm confidence and a terrific sense of humor — are completely disarming. Which is why Jon Stewart failed miserably at giving his hungry “progressive” audience Yoo’s head on a platter.

A sample:

The scathing reviews by the liberal blogosphere prompted Stewart to apologize.

Better penance: Stewart should take Yoo’s class. He’s obviously got a lot more to learn from the professor.
