I just got around to going back for this clip but it's worth sharing. Jon Stewart smacks down John Sununu for Republican hypocrisy over their sudden new found religion on deficits now that it's for domestic spending and trying to get our economy out of a free fall, not wanting to regulate industry as well as their lack of concern for our future generations paying back what the occupation in Iraq and the Bush tax cuts have added to the deficit.

John Amato:

Stewart also asks Sununu if Judd Gregg just learned that he was a conservative? Wouldn't he have known that two weeks ago?

And then Jon talks about how the Bush tax cuts killed the Fed budget and, well...you know...

Stewart: I'm not an economist, but let's say I start out with a surplus and I say lets have a tax cut to stimulate the economy, lets make it 1.2 trillion dollars and that surplus turns into a deficit. Why would I at that point go, hey you know what could fix that? A tax cut.

Heather: As much as the villagers are trying to protect the Republicans over their Bush behavior, the only ones that are left to expose them are the late night comedy/talk show battles as of late. Whether anyone thinks SNL's skit of the Republican leadership was funny or not, which I actually didn't think was all that funny, doesn't really matter and that was not what I was trying to convey by posting it.

I posted it because like this clip, their two faced concern over how our tax payer dollars are spent is being made a mockery of as it should be. It's just sad that our MSM is so corrupted they're not reflecting how they should be scorned for their actions and it's taking our comedians to call them out for it, whether anyone thinks they are funny or not.

Can you help us out?
