Video of the Week: The Carnage They Had Coming



[The Daily Show excerpt at 2:33]

Bush (debate video clip): I think it's important to promote a culture of life. I think a hospitable society is a... is a society where every being counts, every person matters.

Stewart: Every... being... counts. Every... person... matters.

Bush (Q&A video clip): How many Iraqi citizens have died... in this war? Uhm... I would say 30,000 more or less.

Stewart: Each one precious. Each one... each one sacred... ish. As it turns out, there seems to be a bit of a loophole in the culture of life promotion thing. When spreading democracy, moral absolutes... eh, get a little wiggle room.

Snow (White House briefing): It is one of the horrible side effects, that civilians do get injured and killed and that is one of the lamentable things.

Stewart: It's not murder, it's a... "lamentable side effect". The upset stomach and diarrhea of freedom, if you will. So when it comes to the theory... when it comes to the theory that embryonic stem cells can help the fight against disease?

Bush (TV interview): This country's gotta be very careful... on... uh... destroying life to save life.

Stewart: And when it comes to the theory that military intervention can promote Middle East Democracy?

Snow (White House briefing): In a situation like this, you do not want to create undue carnage with civilians.

Stewart: Yes. You want to create due carnage with civilians. You know what I'm saying. The carnage they had coming.
