Last night on the Daily Show, host Jon Stewart took on directly the charge by Republicans that Barack Obama and the Democrats own the shutdown.
Stewart began by referencing a recent interview Speaker John Boehner gave to CBS’ George Stephanopolous, where he said this:
“I and my members decided that the threat of Obamacare and what was happening was so important that it was time for us to take a stand,” Boehner said at the time, which incensed Stewart.
To which Stewart responded:
“Did you f*cking hear that?” Stewart yelled at his audience. “Can we stop having a conversation about if ‘both sides are gonna blink.’ They had a deal.” Stewart continued, You think Obamacare’s a big enough threat to this country that you need to shut down the government, fine. Own it. Don’t fart and point at the dog.”
So there you go. John Boehner is farting and pointing at the dog.
