VIDEO: Jon Stewart Vs. Chris Matthews
"What you are saying is, people can use what politicians do in political campaigns to help their lives. ... That strikes me as fundamentally wrong," says Stewart. "It strikes me as a self-hurt book, if you will. Aren't campaigns fundamentally contrivances?" He then compares it to Machiavelli's The Prince and calls it a recipe for sadness. "If you live this book, your life will be strategy, and you'll be unhappy." Matthews retorts: "There's something in here that you fear," and Stewart replies: "Like fascism; I fear fascism."
