Jon Stewart on Healthcare Reform

The whole healthcare reform thing is getting ridiculous on a number of levels. It was great to see Obama finally stand up to some of the parading and shameless tactics that have been passing for debate. I especially liked seeing him destroy Eric Cantor in this clip from John Stewart. If you're in a hurry, skip to around 6:00 in the video.

And here's another moment from the summit when Obama chastises Cantor for his theatricality. I direct plays for a living, and so I recognize the difference between a prop and a reference material. Look at how the books are stacked on Cantor's table. They have nothing to do with reference or substance. They are merely a visual image to prevent the conversation from moving anywhere. I'm so sick of politicians who play to the lowest denominator without any real substance in their arguments. While I disagree with what McCain had to say, at least his arguments have substance to them and are legitimate concerns. Cantor, on the other hand, is just grandstanding. My favorite quote: "These are the kind of political things we do that prevent us from actually having a conversation."
