I think the point is now what we should say to the twelve people on the Super Committee, get in a room, sit down, reach agreement, on public television." Imagine: it would be like the GOP debate, except with bigger consequences. Unfortunately, Stewart didn't tee off on the suggestion, he appeared to just be transitioning to a commercial break, noting "I think we have a beer to sell."
