My brother and I don’t have cable, but I subscribe to Netflix Instant, and he subscribes to Hulu Plus, so we get access to a truly massive amount of material for less than $20/month between the both of us, via the PS3. So, for the first time in about five years, I’ve been able to watch The Daily Show a bit more often than, well, never. As has been the case forevermore, once comedians began making fun of politics for the viewing pleasure of millions, it can be extremely relieving to come home after two commutes’ worth of NPR news to shake off the depressing facts of the news each day, with a little Stewart comedy.
A week or so ago he took on Fox News’s claims of “class warfare,” in response to Warren Buffet’s claims that the “super-rich” are “coddled” with their low levels of taxes. Stewart’s response is fantastic, hilarious, and with many underlying nuggets of truth. “All we have to do to raise $700 billion is cut 700,000 NPRs. It’s almost too easy!” Stewart joked.
Watch both parts, I swear you won’t be disappointed.
