    67 Republicans.....Yes 67 vote against initial Sandy aid. Including asshole VP candidate Paul Ryan

    Jon Stewart Tears Apart House GOP Over Sandy Aid: If You Can’t Vote For This, ‘Then We’re F*cked’ | Mediaite

    Stewart compared the natural disaster of Sandy to the human disaster of the House GOP, highlighting how Congress left for the night last week before voting on the relief bill. He credited the Republican voices of outrage, including Chris Christie and Peter King, for getting results and forcing the GOP to hold the vote.

    However, the House has only so far approved $9 billion of the $60 billion relief bill, and will take up the rest of it next week, because as Stewart put it, “what’s another week when you’ve been fucked for months?” He scolded the sixty-seven House Republicans who voted against the bill and wondered why they would vote against the bill, asking, “What would Jesus, or any other human being that isn’t an asshole, do?”

    As for the argument that the bill was loaded with pork, Stewart shot back by saying that there were only two such paragraphs in the entire bill, about as much pork as in a PETA staff fridge. He said their reasoning was “bullshit,” and in particular called out a Mississippi Republican for voting against the bill while also, last year, requesting money for the national flood insurance program this past year for his constituents.

    I don't care what a liberal comedian thinks.

    He doesn't really care how much pork was in the damned thing ether.

    Probably was some funding for some gay studies about whether
    lesbians are more weepy after watching a romance movie or are gay Hispanic men.
    Libs are big on that gay stuff.

    I would suggest Jon Stewart's thinking is the perfect example of why were fucked if in fact we are instead of asking the more important question of why all this stuff that has nothing to do with Sandy relief is even in the bill and has gone into so many bills before it and will go into many more to come which helps contribute to our ever growing debt he instead goes on one of his typical paint by the numbers partisan rants.

    There's no excuse for the blatant hypocrisy and selfishness that was on display. But when you have selfish voters, you get selfish representatives.
