Jon Stewart on the Gonzalez Confirmation

Hearings began today to confirm San Francisco Board of Supervisors President Matthew Conzalez as George Bush's Attorney General.

-- err, not that Gonzalez.

No sign of due diligence in the Senate today. Orin Hatch, for example, fell all over himself and thanked Gonzalez for bringing his lovely wife and his tremendous mother. Retaliated Jon Stewart: "Yo, Senator Hatch. Yo mama's so tremendous that when she hauls ass she has to make two trips."

And Howard Zinn on our rulers: "They're addicted to power. They're addicted to war."
