Last night, on the final Daily Show of 2010, Jon Stewart made a sincere plea to the Senate by spending the entire show discussing the Zadroga health care bill for 9/11 first responders. First, he mocked the media for their lack of coverage of the bill, which is being filibustered by the same Senate Republicans who fought tooth and nail to pass an extension of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans. Jon followed that with a panel of actual 9/11 first responders and an interview with Mike Huckabee, who urged all Republicans to vote for the bill. This is all pretty important stuff, so I'm just going to post the entire episode, including an extended and uncensored version of the Huckabee interview.
The episode continues below. The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.
