Quote of the Day   Leave a comment

Jon Stewart “What about Ted Cruz (R-TX), did he escape the internet’s wrath?”

Newsreader “‘Nelson Mandela’, he (Cruz) wrote, ‘will live in history as an inspiration for defenders of liberty around the globe’.  More than 5,000 people liked that comment, but not all of Cruz’s Facebook followers agree.  (reads a Facebook comment on Cruz’s post) ‘he was a murderer and a Communist.  Why are you inspired by this Ted?’.  ‘What about the rampant White Genocide BECAUSE of south african’s “freedon”???????’.   And another writes ‘Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao and FDR are also dead.  They don’t deserve a positive Eulogy either.'”

Stewart “You know the ghost of Franklin Delano Roosevelt was like, how the bleep did I get dragged into this?  … Anonymous jerks on the web say stupid stuff all the time, what about non-anonymous jerks on the TV?”

Rick Santorum (Dec 5) “Nelson Mandela stood up against a great injustice and was willing to pay a huge price for that.  And, that’s the reason he’s mourned today.  Because of that struggle that he performed.”

Stewart “That’s great, as long as you don’t say anything else.”

Santorum continues “We have a great injustice going on right now in this country with an ever increasing size of government that is taking over and controlling people’s lives, and Obamacare is front and center in that.”

Stewart “How do I put this in terms that you’re going to understand here?  Uh, Apartheid is not Obamacare.  The systemic subjugation of a race of people is different from the establishment of subsidized health care exchanges.  The fact that that insurance is now mandated, again, gets us nowhere close to Apartheid level injustice in any way, shape, or, I cannot stress this enough.  So let the word go forth to a new generation of Americans wherever people gather, on whatever it is that Americans read (shows graphic of McDonald’s dollar menu with Apartheid is not Obamacare in the middle of the menu items), Apartheid, injustice wise, greater than, by a large amount of degrees, Obamacare.  If I may shout it from the hilltops (shows video of Julie Andrews from The Sound Of Music) Obamacare is not Apartheid.  The only injustice here, is that you can make a statement like that, and still get to have the TV talking stick.”
