America to the Rescue!

America to the RescueI tend to shy away from regurgitating tidbits from television you’ve most likely already seen (if for no other reason then hey, you already saw that), but I’ll confess that this clip from Wednesday’s episode of The Daily Show might be one of the most perfect summations of America’s effectiveness in the Middle East I’ve ever seen. Titled (appropriately enough) ‘America to the Rescue‘, Jon Stewart (and his trusty on screen graphics crew) take a look back the awesomeness of America’s checkbook, and how it’s made the Middle East the glowing bastion of peace it is today.

Why, oh why, is it that some of the best and least spun analysis of the news is coming from a comedy show? There’s something incredibly wrong with that.
