Jon Stewart Rant

I haven’t seen Jon Stewart do this good a rant in a while:

The rant is about Senate Republicans filibustering a bill that would have paid for health care for injured 9/11 first responders, or as Stewart called it, “The least we can do / No brainer act of 2010”.

UPDATE: A Fox News legal analyst also rants about Congress killing health benefits for 9/11 rescue workers, saying “Shame, embarrassment, outrage, anger — all the proper reactions to the conduct of our senators who … have turned their back on American heroes. … People like me on TV are sometimes practiced at outrage, but the injustice of this makes words hard to come by.” But in his entire rant, he somehow fails to mention that the vote against the bill was on partisan lines, with every single Republican Senator voting against it. In fact, while he rants against “Congress” and “the US Senate”, he never even uses the word “Republican”. I guess I know what he means about certain words being hard to come by. Watch it.
