Jon Stewart Rocks

I saw that wonderful, blistering piece where Stewart showed the hypocrisy of Republicans who had wrapped themselves up in 9/11 patriotism voting against health care benefits for 9/11 responders.
"I can't wait for them to take to the floor to talk about why their party hates first responders,"
Did this tip the political balance?  Maybe
John Feal, founder of the FealGood Foundation who connected Stewart with the first responders who came on the show, says moving the bill toward passage has been a team effort. But he credits Stewart for its recent progress: "What Jon Stewart did was he literally shamed conventional media and the U.S. government into doing the right thing." 
Maybe not, but it sure was a blast to see the hypocrisy displayed.
