Jon Stewart mocks Democrat Harry Reid's poor oratory, Koch hypocrisy

Daily Show

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has been waging a pretty high-profile rhetorical war against Charles and David Koch, the multi-billionaire industrialists who are putting their money where their conservative, small-government mouths are. Jon Stewart isn't against that crusade, but on Tuesday night's Daily Show he focused more on Reid's unwillingness to similarly criticize Nevada billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, who also dumps tons of money into conservative causes. In case the flagrant double standard isn't obvious, Jason Jones spelled it out, with visual aids. --Peter Weber
