Jon Stewart on Torricelli

Stewart continues to deliver the best political commentary out there and captures why the whole David Chang gift issue is sort of stupid and silly:

Torricelli, a powerful fundraiser who raised more than a $100 million for Senate Democrats, took inappropriate gifts from a businessman, including an $8000 watch, for which he was severely admonished by the Senate Ethics Committee in July.

To recap, raising a $100 million in contributions from gigantic corporations, ethical. Taking a watch, unethical. That's the Senate Ethics Committee- an oxymoron since 1974
