Oh, it’s on -- “O'Reilly v Stewart 2012: The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium” as Fox News pundit Bill O’Reilly and Comedy Central snipe Jon Stewart roll up their sleeves for a political debate.
The two have faced off before on each other’s shows and the exchanges, while respectful, were pointed. This time the three knockdown rule will be in effect.
Here’s the website for the event, which will take place October 6 on the campus of George Washington University. You can livestream it on your computer for $4.95 with half the proceeds designated for charity.
Both men are gearing up for the throwdown. First Stewart.
Then O’Reilly, who as might guess, sees it more as a chance to examine political philosophies and policies.
This is a great precedent. Next up: Leno v Letterman?
