Jon Stewart Rips Into Out-of-Touch Millionaires, Including Bill O'Reilly
Jon Stewart reserved his most potent strain of sarcasm last night for a group of millionaires including GOP politicians and Bill O'Reilly, who are making the media rounds warning of the dire effects that a minimal increase on their taxes might have.
After some ribbing at their expense, he ended the segment with a faux commercial begging the audience for charity to help these poor "endangered" millionaires--set to the tune of Sarah McLachlan's sappy animal rescue ads. Well-done.
Policy-wise, he also makes a pretty convincing case for progressive taxation.
