What Politicians Do

"Politicians are doing what politicians do. I liken it to when you go to the zoo, and the monkeys are sitting in there jerking off and throwing their s---. And you just gotta go, 'Well, they're monkeys.' But you can yell at the media and go, 'You know, your job is to tell them when they're being bad monkeys.'"

-- John Stewart, quoted in the Sept 17, 2004 issue of Entertainment Weekly

Hey! Rob here from Jalpuna.com... thanks for the kind words about my site. I couldn't find your email, so I'm posting here. Great John Stewart quote by the way. Have you read his commencement address? It was superb.

Cheers!

I haven't seen the commencement address. I'll have to look for that.
