    We knew it'd be a good show. TV hosts Jon Stewart and Bill O’Reilly faced off Saturday night for “The Rumble in the Air-Conditioned Auditorium,” and the billing lived up to its name. “My friend Bill O’Reilly is completely full of shit,” Stewart said, opening the debate. But perhaps the most shocking moments came when O’Reilly admitted that “we should not have gone into Iraq” and that Obama has “done a good job on terrorism.” Arguments got heated over Medicare and welfare, especially when Stewart revealed that O’Reilly’s father had been a recipient of disability payments, and O’Reilly responded that Stewart had no idea what the difference between the public and private sectors are. They did agree on a few things, like immigration reform and the right to chose your soda size. “I appreciate the fact that a man built like a yeti can move so fluidly,” Stewart told O’Reilly, who responded, “I admire someone who’s been in rehab six times and is still as successful as Stewart is.”
