Jon Stewart may lack perspective since his New York studios are in the center of the area hit by Hurricane Sandy. But that didn't stop him from going on a profanity-laced tirade against the GOP for daring to demand accountability in the bill. From Mediaite:
Jon Stewart used his first show of 2013 to tear into House Republicans for the rather notable opposition to the Hurricane Sandy relief bill passed in the Senate. Stewart called them “assholes” and their reasoning “bullsh*t,” as well as mocking the idea that there was so much pork in the bill many Republicans couldn’t bring themselves to vote for it.
Stewart compared the natural disaster of Sandy to the human disaster of the House GOP, highlighting how Congress left for the night last week before voting on the relief bill. He credited the Republican voices of outrage, including Chris Christie and Peter King, for getting results and forcing the GOP to hold the vote.
Sorry, buddy, but this $60 billion boondoggle is well-named and may be well-intentioned but it's so loaded with pork that Patrick Cudahy is looking to slice it up.
Wait, I have another one: It's so loaded with pork that people mistake it for a police officer walking down the street.
Ooh, wait: It's so loaded with pork that it's going to bust out at the end of the movie and declare, "That's All, Folks!"
But seriously, this is a bad bill with a good name. The GOP was right to withhold support, Stewart's harangue notwithstanding.
