Jon Stewart Throttles Democrats For Hypocrisy on Campaign Spending


<p>[<em>More in the cross-post on the MRC&#39;s <a href="…; target="_blank">NewsBusters blog</a>.</em>]</p>

<p>Jon Stewart attacked top liberals/Democrats on the 13 October 2014 edition of <em>The Daily Show</em> for their blatant hypocrisy on the influence of money in politics. Stewart particularly mocked former Democratic senator and current Secretary of State John Kerry for his past lament that &quot;the unending chase for money threatens to steal our democracy itself,&quot; while his party raises hundreds of millions of dollars for its campaigns.</p>

<p>Stewart gave a bit of snarky advice for the left-of-center politicians, who have wringed their hands over the &quot;corrupting influence of money,&quot; while throwing fundraisers at Hollywood stars:</p>

<p>JON STEWART: Here a tip: it may undercut your message when you&#39;re condemning a thing that you have clearly mastered. It&#39;s one of those, thou shall not kill, but if you&#39;re going to, single shot, back of the head &ndash; you want a carbon steel hacksaw, then put the parts in several trash bags, spread them out over a forest.</p>
