Stewart: John, doesn't the President want us to feel that the people that he hires are competent?

Oliver: No, no, absolutely not. No, he wants you-and the American people-to leave him the f@%# alone. Now, Jon, legally, Gonzales had to appear before Congress. So his choice was either to expose the administration's political machinations or appear to be a functioning pinhead. He went with pinhead. And if I may say: NAILED IT!
