It's time for an Entertainment Break, and what a glorious one this is.

I happened to stumble across a video of the first time Pastor John MacArthur and California Governor Gavin Newsom (then mayor of San Francisco) squared off. It was in 2004 on CNN's "Larry King Live" and J-Mac, well, devoured him.

Here's the video:

When MacArthur first appeared on the screen looking like this, you knew it was already over for Newsom:

Also, even 16 years ago, Newsom exuded that "Disney villain" vibe. And when he pulled the "I'm a practicing Catholic, don't you question spiritual credentials" card, MacArthur had the killshot ready:

"As a practicing Catholic, do you believe the Bible is the word of God?"

Checkmate. Cue Newsom squirming. So much squirming. It's uncomfortable to watch.

What a glorious video.
