AND YOU KNOW WHAT, JONACTUALLY WARNED ME ABOUT

THIS.

HE LEFT ME A LITTLE PAMPHLETABOUT HOW TO HANDLE DICK

CHENEY, HE DID.

IT'S CALLED JON STEWART'SGUIDE TO HANDLING DICK.

(APPLAUSE)PROBABLY NOT THE BEST TITLE.

THAT'S ALL RIGHT.

OKAY.

NUMBER ONE, MAKE IMMATUREDICK JOKE, COMPLETE, DONE.

APPEASING HITLER IN MUNICH IN1938.

REALLY?

>> YES.

>> Larry: THAT IS BULL[BLEEP].

JON WAS RIGHT.

OKAY.

SO YOU ARE GOING TO OPENWITH LINKING OBAMA TO HITLER,

THAT'S HOW YOU ARE OPENINGIT.

BILLY JOEL DOESN'T OPEN WITH"PIANO MAN"

DID I JUST LINK PIANO MAN TOHITLER?

SORRY, BILLY JOEL.

ALL RIGHT, BUT MAYBE IT GOTBETTER FROM THERE.

WHAT ELSE DID CHENEY HAVE TOSAY.

>> WE DID A LOT TO LIMITNUCLEAR PROLIFERATION IN THE

REGION >> BUT THE

CENTRIFUGES WENT FROM 0 TO5,000.

>> THEY MAY WELL BUT THATHAPPENED ON OBAMA WATCH, NOT

ON OURS.

WHERE LYING IS TO BE EXPECTED,RIGHT.

WHATEVER, BABY, YOU KNEW ILIED WHEN YOU STARTED GOING

WITH ME.

WHAT?

GO GET ME SOME COURVOISIER.

AND NUMBER THREE, ANDPROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT,

IF CHRIS WALLACE HADN'TCALLED YOU OUT ON IT, YOU

WOULD HAVE BEEN HAPPY FOREVERYBODY TO JUST SWALLOW

THAT POISON PILL, RIGHT?

LIKE IT WAS-- A POISON PILLTHAT EVEN FOX NEWS CHOKED ON.

WELL, WHATEVER, IT'S JUST ALIE.

>> THIS IS WHY IT'S HARD TOHAVE AN INTELLIGENT

CONVERSATION WITH THISIMPERSONATOR OF A HUMAN

BEING.

MR. CHENEY, IT IS ONE THINGTO NOT HAVE A PULSE ANY

MORE.

BUT TO NOT HAVE A CONSCIENCEIS UNCONSCIONABLE.

I MEAN GUYS, HE'S JUST LIKESOME CREATURE WHO JUST MAKES

[BLEEP] UP.

AND LOOK, I KNOW IT SOUNDSLIKE I'M PICKING ON DICK

CHENEY, I KNOW, ACTUALLY IHAVE TO ADMIT, SOME OF THIS

IS MY FAULT.

NO, NO NO.

I CREATED DICK CHENEY.

ALL RIGHT, OR MORE PRECISELY,I SUMMONED HIM.

I KNOW.

I KNOW, I KNOW IT SOUNDSCRAZY.

GUYS, GUYS, OKAY.

THIS IS A STORY I NEVER TOLDANYBODY.

AND PLEASE DON'T TELLANYBODY THIS IS JUST BETWEEN

US, AMERICA, OKAY.

ALL RIGHT SO, I WAS LIKENINE AREAS OLD AT THE TIME

AND I WAS ON A-- I WAS ON AHIKE IN THE WOODS AND I KIND

OF GOT SEPARATED FROM ASCOUT TROOP.

AND THAT'S WHEN I MET THETALKING DOG THAT I FOUND OUT

LATER WAS A SHAPE SHIFTINGWITCH.

BUT THAT'S BESIDES THE POINT,REALLY.

BUT ANYWAY, THE DOG LEAD METO AN ANCIENT CAVE.

AND THEN HE HAD ME REPEAT ASPELL IN A LANGUAGE I DIDN'T

UNDERSTAND, OKAY.

BUT IN MY DEFENSE, THE DOGWAS VERY PERSUASIVE.

YEAH.

>> SUMMON THE DARK LORDFROM THE ETHER AND WILL YOU

GET LOTS OF TOYS FORCHRISTMAS.

>> RIGHT?

>> IF YOU HAVE EVER BEEN INTHAT SITUATION, YOU KNOW THE

REST.

THE FIERY HELL, THE DEMONMATERIALIZES, THE TALKING

DOG REWARDS ME WITH THE KICKASS CHRISTMAS AND EVENTUALLY

HE BECOMES VICE PRESIDENT,INVASION OF IRAQ, BLAME

OBAMA, WA, WA, WA, SO SORRYABOUT THAT, MY BAD, ALL

RIGHT.

WHOOO, GOT THAT OFF MY CHEST,MAN.

THAT'S GREAT.

>> JUST EMOTIONAL FROM THECATHARSIS, SO I APOLOGIZE

FOR THAT OKAY.

ALL RIGHT SO, DICK CHENEYEXPECTS US TO BELIEVE HIS

PREDICTIONS ABOUT THE IRANDEAL WHEN PREDICTIONS ARE

SOMETHING HE IS JUST NOTTHAT GOOD AT.

>> SIMPLY STATED, THERE ISNO DOUBT THAT SADDAM HUSSEIN

NOW HAS WEAPONS OF MASSDESTRUCTION.

>> Larry: NO DOUBT.

>> WELL, IF I COULD QUOTE NODOUBT, DON'T SPEECH.

>> AND IT'S NOT EVEN JUSTPOLITICS, DICK CHENEY HAS

MADE HORRIBLE PREDICTIONSABOUT ALL KINDS OF STUFF.

LET'S LOOK AT A FEW YOUPROBABLY AREN'T EVEN AWARE

OF.

>> I PREDICT BRUCE JENNERWILL NEVER, EVER BE A WOMAN.

>> Larry: WRONG!

WRONG.

(APPLAUSE)IT'S WEIRD.

KIND OF WEIRD HE WOULD WEIGHIN ON THAT DURING THE '70s.

SO I THINK WE'RE ALL AGREEDHE GETS A LOT OF [BLEEP]

WRONG.

ACTUALLY, I NEED TO CLARIFY.

THERE IS JUST ONE BRIEFMOMENT WHEN DICK CHENEY GOT

SOMETHING RIGHT.

IN THE '90s, HE SUPPORT THEDECISION NOT TO INVADE

BAGHDAD.

>> ONCE YOU GOT TO IRAQ ANDTOOK IT OVER, TOOK DOWN

SADDAM HUSSEIN'S GOVERNMENT,THEN WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO

PUT IN ITS PLACE, THAT'S AVERY VOLATILE PART OF THE

WORLD AND IF YOU TAKE DOWNTHE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT IN

IRAQ YOU CAN EASILY END UPSEEING PIECES OF IRAQ FLY

OFF.

IT'S A QUAGMIRE.

>> Larry: YES, THAT'S RIGHT,MY [BLEEP].

YOU PREDICTED THE VERY THINGTHAT YOU ENDED UP DOING.

IS YOU KNEW IT WAS WRONG.

YOU KNEW HOW IT WOULD ENDUP.

AND YOU DID IT ANYWAY.

YOU NEVER APOLOGIZED FOR ITYOU NEVER ADMITTED YOUR

MISTAKE AND THEN YOU JUSTDROP LITTLE LIE BOMBS AND

YOU TRY TO MAKE THE BROTHERCLEAN UP YOUR MESS.

YOU ARE LIVING IN AN EXTREMECOGNITIVE DISSONANCE THAT NOT

EVEN BILL BELICHICK WOULDRECOGNIZE.

I DID NOT CONJURE UP BILLBELICHICK, YOU GUYS.

ALL RIGHT.

NOW LET'S GET BACK TOOBAMA'S IRAN DEAL.

YES, COMPLEX, YEAH, JUST ALOT OF BAD CHOICES.

HERE'S FORMER SECRETARY OFSTATE HILLARY CLINTON'S

ASSESSMENT.

>> WITHOUT A DEAL, IRAN'SBREAKOUT TIME, HOW LONG THEY

NEED TO PRODUCE ENOUGHMATERIAL FOR A NUCLEAR

WEAPON WOULD SHRINK TO ACOUPLE OF MONTHS.

WITH A DEAL THAT

BREAKOUT TIME STRETCHES TO AYEAR.

>> Larry: AND THAT'S SOMEONETRYING TO MAKE THE CASE FOR

IT.

RIGHT?

LISTEN, I DON'T LOVE THISDEAL EITHER.

BUT OFTEN YOU HAVE TO MAKEDEALS WITH PEOPLE YOU DON'T

TRUST WHEN THE STAKES ARE SOHIGH.

SOMETIMES IT AVOIDS NUCLEARWAR LIKE THE SALT TREATIES

WITH THE SOVIETS.

I DON'T THINK THERE WASENOUGH INFORMATION WHEN I

FIRST CAME INTO THE LEAGUEIN 94 THAT SAID HEY, TONY

THERE IS GOING TO BELONG-TERM EFFECTS.

I KNEW THERE WOULD BE ACHESAND PAINS AND THINGS OF THAT

NATURE.

BUT WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT THEBRAIN AND AS MUCH AS YOU ARE

LEARNING I WOULD HAVEHANDLED DIFFERENTLY.

>> I LOVE PEOPLE SAY THEREWASN'T ENOUGH INFORMATION.

IN FOOTBALL HEADS COLLIDEAGAINST EACH OTHER, LIKE WE

DIDN'T-- DID WE REALLY NEEDTHE SURGEON GENERAL TO TELL

BECAUSE YOU HAVE MOREPROTECTION, LIKE YOU ARE

GOING AT IT -- WHEN I SAYYOU GUYS LIKE US GUYS GO AT

IT.

I MEAN NOT THESE GUYS.

AS FAR AS THE KNOWLEDGE IDIDN'T HAVE, BECAUSE BEFORE

AS A FULLBACK I WOULD RUN INAND SOMETIMES COME OUT AND

SEE STARS, OKAY, YOU'RE FINE,GET BACK IN, THOSE STARS

WERE PROBABLY A CONCUSSION.

>> PROBABLY. IT'S NOT A BUGSBUNNY CARTOON

I'M NOT LAYING OUT ON THEFIELD, I'M NOT ABLE TO

REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED ANDYOU KNOW, TWO QUARTERS

BEFORE THAT, RIGHT, SEEINGSTARS, OKAY, I CAN DEAL WITH

THAT I PUT MYSELF BACK IFTHE GAME.

WHERE NOW THERE IS APROTOCOL IF YOU SEE ONE OF

YOUR TEAMMATES AND HE'SSTRUGGLING OR CAN'T QUITE

GET TO YOUR FEET,AUTOMATICALLY YOU CALL FOR A

REFEREE OR SEND TO THE FOULLINE BECAUSE ARE YOU

FOOTBALL. SEEING STARS IS NOTNORMAL.

>> YEAH.

>> I DON'T KNOW IF I COULDHAVE DONE THAT, COULD YOU

HAVE DONE THAT.

>> LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING,THE REASON I DIDN'T PLAY

FOOTBALL: I DON'T LIKEGETTING HIT AND THEY HIT IN

FOOTBALL.

I'M NOT A FAN OF GETTINGHIT.
