Jon Stewart to Dems: ‘Pick Up Your Game’
Posted on Mar 1, 2006
CNN via Crooks and Liars:
KING: You don’t want Medicare to fail?
STEWART: Are you insane?
STEWART: You’re literally asking me if I would prefer—yes, Larry, what I’m saying to you as a comedian I want old people to suffer, old and poor people to suffer. That is—that is—what we want is—what seems absurd to me is the length that Washington just seems out of touch with the desires of Americans to be spoken to as though they are adults.
I mean when you listen to Bush’s speeches, and I’m leaving the Democrats out because I honestly don’t feel that they make an impact. They have 49 percent of the vote and three percent of the power. At a certain point you go “Guys, pick up your game.”
