Jon Stewart Proposes Geraldo Rivera Assume Leadership of Libyan Rebels (VIDEO)

On 'The Daily Show' (weekdays, 11 PM ET on Comedy Central) Jon Stewart played some clips of the reporting Geraldo Rivera has been doing over in Libya for Fox News.

In the clips, Geraldo dodges bullets, strikes poses, and at one point seems to be barking orders at the rebel fighters. The last clip Stewart played was one of Geraldo reporting that the anti-Qaddafi rebels in Libya are so poorly trained that they would be a grave danger to themselves if they were given more powerful weapons.

"If only someone would come forth, take control of this control of this ragtag bunch," Stewart said, playing off what Geraldo had reported. "A charismatic brave somewhat narcissistic figure who already posses the confidence and the facial hair configuration of an old world guerrilla force leader."

"This has potential," Stewart concluded.

Then, to drive his point home, Stewart played the trailer to the classic movie "Lawrence of Arabia," only with Geraldo's head superimposed onto the title character (and rebel leader's) body.
