From The Daily Show April 20, 2009.

Stewart: America, where we are..is a simple country governed by simple rules. In fact, the simpler the better.... We don't torture. Three words, that aren't said enough that symbolize America like I love you or where's the beef. Totally clear. No matter how bad it gets. No matter how ruthless our enemies, we... don't... torture. Now whether or not that statement is true isn't the point. The point is..don't f#@king worry about it.....

Oh great!! So instead of just enjoying the fact that we don't torture, we're going to have to sit through a list of the things we do do, in a blatent attempt to hurt our brains.

My favorite part was him taking my good buddy Peggy Noonan to task for her idiocracy on This Week.

Stewart: Just keep walkin'. Slavery.... Genocide..... Hey you know what else you want to do when you're walking, you want to do this (holds ears) because the screams of the people that are getting tortured might get really loud. Ladies and gentlemen that's Peggy Noonan putting the question of why our country tortures people into the same category with why men have nipples.

Can you help us out?
