Court Jester - Just Facts

The court jester, many times throughout history, has spoken truth to power.  Sometimes, it is to comic effect. Sometimes, it is to their own demise.  Ricky Gervais is very abrasive, and can come across as an extremely unpleasant human being, but he has some nice friends - Jon Stewart being one of them, and I have a great deal of respect for Stewart.  I have to say, I cannot agree more with Gervais's statement: "You can have your own opinions. But you can't have your own facts."
