It's a sad state of affairs when comedians are the only people to do serious political interviews, but Jon Stewart's subtle questioning of Tony Blair is perhaps one of the most revealing and useful exposes of a man whose world view is utterly out of sync with reality.

The interview is funny, and Stewart takes a light hearted approach to his subject, but his deft questioning keeps Blair on the back foot and highlights many of the former prime minister's moral inconsistencies in regards to the Iraq war.
