I know a bunch of you don’t particularly like Jon Stewart due to his view on gun control, and his generally leftest views, but I think he hit it out of the park last night talking about the NSA.
Those whose jobs it is to oversee the NSA are either claiming “oh… we didn’t know” (either complete BS, or complete failure to do their jobs), or, in the case of the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, not only doesn’t believe that there’s not a problem, but, and I quote, believes that “you can’t have your privacy violated if you don’t know your privacy was violated.” Yes. I looked up the context. He actually believes that you didn’t do anything wrong if you don’t get caught.
By the way, Jon does blame both sides of the aisle for this one.
Oh… and his explanation of Obama’s reaction to all of this? You have to go back to two days ago for that bit. Apparently nobody tells Obama anything.
