      • (discussing mortgage loan crisis)
        Jon Stewart: Are the rates different on a subprime mortgage?
        Richard Bitner:Yes, absolutely.
        Jon Stewart: Higher?
        Richard Bitner:Yeah clearly because there is a greater level of risk. Remember, this is a risk-based business.
        Jon Stewart: Absolutely. If you're going to give money to people who have a tough time paying it back, charge them more. It makes total sense.
        Richard Bitner:It's the logic of the American financial system.

      • (in video clip) John McCain: It's a very hard struggle, particularly given the situation on the Iraq/Pakistan border.
        (shows map)
        Jon Stewart: The Iraq/Pakistan border, also known as Iran!

      • (Discussing Barack Obama's trip to the Middle East)
        News Anchor: (clip) It's an opportunity for a big faux pas.
        Jon Stewart: A faux pas? Will he visit a Muslim country wearing his all-bacon suit? Perhaps his zipper will be down? Or maybe he'll start a war!
