It's no secret that the Republicans and Democrats in Congress have trouble getting stuff done, so it was a pleasant surprise when a sweeping food safety bill recently passed the Senate with bipartisan support. It seems even the vicious partisan divide in Washington can't stand in the way of our leaders' sincere concern that we not be killed by e-coli in our cheeseburgers, so we can instead be killed by the fat and sodium in our cheeseburgers like God intended. And yet, as Jon Stewart discussed on last night's Daily Show, even something so universally supported and wholly virtuous has its detractors.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.
