The Daily Show: Bill Bennett Finds Comedians More Offensive Than Waterboarding


The Daily Show's Jon Stewart has a bit of fun with the Hollywood elite attending this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner, and slaps around Bill Bennett for his feigned outrage over Wanda Sykes' and Stephen Colbert's performances at the event.

Stewart: So sometimes comedians are so offensive that Bill Bennett and his lovely wife Elaine Bennett have to leave the room because offensive jokes are not a hallmark of good decent society. They are over the line. By the way what's waterboarding? Is that within the line?

Bennett: These are serious measures. This is not torture. These were serious measures. But I don't care if you do call it torture.

Stewart: Bad jokes and gay marriage are destroying this country. But torture can save it.
