There's been a lot of talk this week about Jon Stewart's appearance before Congress, shaming members for skipping a hearing on a victims' compensation fund to help 9/11 first-responders.

Our own Bill Spadea thought it was grandstanding. Jeff Deminski thought it was anything but. But Jim Gearhart thought it was something extraordinary for entirely different reasons.

"There were several headlines that said Jon Stewart shames the Congress," Jim said in this week's LIVE podcast, available each week here as well as on Apple Podcasts and Google Play. "If you can shame te most shameless organization, the most shameful organization on the hemisphere, you have done something truly remarkable."

Jim's podcast is presented each week LIVE at, as Jim and Bob Williams take your questions and comments in the Facebook chat.
