This afternoon, Eric Garland posted this video clip on Twitter. It's a seven minute clip from The Daily Show in which Jon Stewart lambastes the last eight American Presidents for their empty words about "independence from foreign oil".
While it is classic Jon Stewart humor, it's also very sad. But I'm not sure which is sadder: the content of the video, or the fact that such an important statement has to come from a comedy program.
Lest we blame all of this on the President, there are another 535 parasites on Capitol Hill who bear just as much responsibility.
So enjoy the video, but if you're an American citizen, please think long and hard about who gets your vote this fall.
