On Monday night Jon Stewart slammed former Vice President Dick "The Dick" Cheney over his outrageous "Meet the Press" interview, where among other things Cheney used 9/11 as a deflecting shield, and defended the use of torture.

“Is Dick Cheney a righteous warrior or a psychopath?” Stewart asked at the beginning of the segment.


Despite being beside himself with disbelief for most of the segment, Stewart ended with a moment of thanks. "George W. Bush," Stewart began, "thank you for not dying while you were in office."
