VIDEO: Jon Stewart Shreds House GOP Over Sandy Vote

Jon Stewart Shreds House GOP Over Sandy Vote: 'What Would Jesus Or Any Other Human Being (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart didn't really have a joke at the end of his rant against the 67 GOP members of the House who voted against aid to victims of Hurricane Sandy, and he didn't seem to need one. As is "The Daily Show's" style, the host had so thoroughly painted the vote as incomprehensibly laughable there was nothing left to say but "we'll be right back."
The issue is certainly personal to Stewart as a native of New Jersey, but this wasn't a question of residence for the host, simply one of conscience. At one point, he queried to members on the wrong side of the vote, "What would Jesus -- or any other human being that isn't an asshole -- do?"
Watch the full clip above and then breathe a sigh of relief that Stewart and company are back from their two-week break to give voice to the country's collective exasperated sigh.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
