Jon Stewart ” I don’t know if you happened to be near a television set today, although clearly you’re at one right now, but you might have heard the big news out of the Senate.”

Reporter (CNN) “Harry Reid is poised to launch the nuclear option.”

Stewart “Nooooooo!!!!! No Harry, don’t, there’s still good in this world. Don’t kill us all. What is the nuclear option, by the way?”

Reporter “The nuclear option means that it would only take 51 votes, a simple majority, to get, overcome this filibuster threat.”

Stewart “Ooooooh! So, deciding to allow majority rules, to incrementally increase governmental efficiency in Presidential appointments is so unthinkably extreme it’s the nuclear option? It’s just like Hiroshima, of voting.”
