    • QUOTES (2)

      • Lewis Black: Gosh, I'm so tired of all this health care talk. And I know I'm not the only one. Noonan?
        Peggy Noonan (video clip of "morning joe" show: When I was a kid growing up, we never talked about health-care. Why did America become obsessed with health-care the past twenty years or so?
        Lewis Black: You're not fooling anybody, lady! You weren't a kid twenty years ago.
        When you were growing up, people didn't talk about health-care because they thought they got sick from witches.

      • Jon Stewart: Now, back here on Earth, several weeks ago, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford disappeared without explanation for five days. Now, of course, as it turns out, he didn't really disappear. He was hiking on the Appalachian Trail, which is a trail that starts in Maine and ends in an Argentine woman's vagina. Bring gorp.
        Since then the governor has apologized many times. Most recently in an open letter to the people of South Carolina in which he promised to quote, " God in his larger work of changing me".
        Man, I thought reformed Judaism was lax. This Christianity thing sounds amazing!
        See, you're not banging a hot Argentinian woman, you're undergoing a religious metamorphosis ...and you get to do that and eat bacon!
