The Daily Show on limited government
Froomkin again: "On Comedy Central's Daily Show last night, satirical correspondent Robb Cordrry insisted to host Jon Stewart that 'Everything the president is doing is perfectly in keeping with the conservative ideal of limited government.'
Stewart, who had just divulged the possible $200 billion pricetag for Bush's proposals for Gulf Coast reconstruction, expressed puzzlement.
So Cordrry explained: 'This president believes government should be limited not in size, Jon, but in effectiveness. In terms of effectiveness, this is the most limited administration we've ever had.'"
