Why so green and lonely? Everything's going to be alright, just you wait and see.

Stewart on Deficits

Funniest Daily Show segment I've seen in a long time, via Crooks and Liars (WMV and QT).
But sleep tight America! The government isn't taking money from your pocket——it's deficit spending. It means the United States is actually taking out long term loans from banks and foreign governments. So, don't think of it like $2,000 that you don't have. Think of it as $200,000 your grandchildren don't have. And, seriously, f**k them; they think you smell like ass.
He totally hits the nail on the head there. See my Feynman on Deficits post for more cynical fun.
