The Daily Show Meets the Washington Jackass Wagon

Scott Ray sent me a link to The Daily Show's hilarious coverage of the Congressional hearings on video game violence.

The funny thing is that even though Jon Stewart is brilliant as always, the funniest parts are listening to the Congressman talk, because they sound like they just came from the moon. Joseph Pitts (R-Pennsylvania), in particular, disgraces the human race in general.

Steward put it quite accurately: "The House of Representatives is filled with insane jackasses."

Like I've said on several occasions, there is a legitimate discussion to be had about violence in video games in regards to kids. A totally legitimate discussion. Unfortunately, no one in Washington wants to have that discussion.

The link for the video is here.
