Jon Stewart on Oprah

Rally to Restore Sanity
I was alerted to these videos by CJ and Jordan–who, by the way, would really appreciate your help in getting them to DC for the Rally to Restore Sanity–so here you go: Jon Stewart’s appearance on Oprah from earlier this week. (You might need to turn up your volume a few clicks.)

I wish we’d listened to George W. Bush …

… when he said, on October 12, 2000:

If we are an arrogant nation, they will resent us. If we’re a humble nation, but strong, they’ll welcome us.

He was right.

In fact, I wish George W. Bush had listened to himself, as Jon Stewart points out in this clip from a few years ago (thanks to Eric for the tip):

9/11 changed a lot of people in a lot of different ways. I wish it hadn’t changed 43 in the way that it did.
