Jon Stewart: Would you let a Jew drive you to the airport?

I am convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the nature of America, by the time they're my age they will be in a secular Atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists..." I'll just let that one sink in for a minute. Atheist Islamists: an evil hybrid designed to destroy the America its forefathers so bravely fought for.

Haley Barbour, governor of Mississippi, said "Mississippi is the safest state in America for an unborn child."
"And [has] the highest mortality rate in America for children out of the womb - 50th," Jon Stewart responds.
And Donald Trump wants to see Obama's birth certificate.
Well, these people are all well-educated, obviously. That's why they have such power. Because people wouldn't elect idiots to govern states or countries, right?
May the voters have mercy on our neighbour's soul.
