After John Ashcroft's testimony last week in which he bobbed and weaved his way around answering every question about what he did during his time in the White House, Jon Stewart and John Oliver compare Bush and his merry band of obfuscators to other American Presidential liars in order to make a historical comparison. Needless to say, the Bush team is in a league of its own.

Oliver: "I just hope everyone at home appreciates the magnitude of what they're witnessing here. For 7 straight years, this administration has been untouchable in hearings. These guys are the '27 Yankees of dodging questions. The '55 Dodgers of yanking Congress' chain. They're the right stuff of wrong stuff. John, this is once in a generation bullsh*t."

Steart: You really think this admininstration is that good at this?

John: Sure, look, we can quibble at the level of competetition. You can criticize the strength of their opponents -- lets face it, the Democrats have been pathetic. But you still can't help but be impressed at the level of skills on display. I won't be surprised if in years to come they describe these hearings as the 'Immaculate Deception.'"

I truly can't wait to see those jerseys hanging from the rafters.

Digg It!
