Stewart “So, let me get this straight.  All this destruction and bloodshed was over a dumb internet video, made by some bleephole, and it was promoted by the Koran burning Florida pastor, Terry Jones.  I believe we have a clip of him as well.”

Terry Jones (from the movie Life of Brian) “He’s not the messiah.  He’s a very naughty boy.”

Stewart “I’m sorry.  I’m being told that’s a very different Terry Jones, mocking a different world religion, in a film that’s been around for 33 years.  Well, that must be a lot of burned embassies.  Really?  None at all?  Fair enough.  Look, I’m all about cultural sensitivity.  It’s the whole point of my 1996 rap album: Black and white and great all over – celebrating our differences through phat beats.  But, I gotta say, I don’t understand this one.  An online film, that nobody’s seen, made by some bleephole.  I mean, it’s the thinnest pretext for violence imaginable.  It’s almost as if certain leaders in that part of the world are deliberately exploiting whatever they can get their hands on, to rile up the populous for their own political gain.  Ah!  Hey, wait a minute.  You really are getting the hang of this democracy thing pretty fast.”
