With last year's round of bank bailouts, Jon Stewart's comedic cup overfloweth with material. Now, with General Motors
' bankruptcy official, Stewart takes aim at the late, great automaker in the segment "BiGMess."
Although Stewart was late to the game with last night's Daily Show
and a few of his quips provide further proof that the MSM are still woefully uninformed about what brought down two of the Big Three, between gags, he poses a few questions the average American is asking. Namely, what happened to the $20 billion we (U.S. taxpayers) loaned GM
, why are we going to drop another $30 billion into the bankrupt automaker and why, if we're in the business of taking over corporations, can't we start buying companies that – you know – make money?
You can watch the segment in the clip below the fold, along with Stewart's interview with P.J. O'Rourke, hawking his oh-so-timely book Driving Like Crazy
