Time to unwrap the presidency

Richard Core Dec 29, 2008

In this time of crisis we have not one, but two presidents on the case. One is addressing the issues, while the other is unveiling his portrait. Do we really have to wait till January 20th? Can we just have him already?

This is like when you were a kid and your parents bought you a bike. You knew it was a bike — It’s shaped like a bike. What else could it be? — But they wouldn’t let you open it until Christmas. I guess what I’m saying is . . . JUST GIVE US THE BIKE!”

— Jon Stewart, The Daily Show With Jon Stewart.
