I Love This Man

Tonight on the Daily Show, Jon Stewart introduced the concept of generational equity to his loyal viewers.
(approximate transcript, by me)

The cost of the Iraq war so far ? $2,083 per taxpayer. I know what you're thinking--I could have adopted several Third World children with that money. Or spent it on an eight-ball and a night with a fancy hooker.
But hey, that's not money out of your pocket. We have deficit spending! Borrowing! Don't think of it as $2000 you don't have. Think of it as TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS your GRANDCHILDREN don't have [cut to pic of adorable grandkids]. And seriously! F*ck them! They think you smell like ass!!!!!
