CBS: Bush is retard is "very funny observation"

In an article on Jon Stewart's announcing he'll vote for Kerry at a breakfast yesterday, CBS's Jon Friedman reports that,
There was no meanness in his comic arsenal -- simply stinging wit and very funny observations.
He also reports that Stewart mentioned, "retarded Bush from the first debate."

I happen to like Jon Stewart despite my disagreement with his politics. His show and his book both have moments of hillarity.

But does Friedman really think that calling the president retarded is more "very funny observation" than meanness? I can only guess where Friedman's political sympathies lie.
