Video: Stewart skewers Pelosi on waterboarding

I’d give Jon Stewart credit for going after Nancy Pelosi, except that she made herself such an easy target over the last couple of weeks. Still, even with that said, Stewart does a great job of ridiculing Pelosi’s insistence that she was never told about waterboarding, and that if she was told it was only in a hypothetical sense, and if it wasn’t strictly hypothetical it wasn’t her place to object because they didn’t seek her approval, because as everyone knows, the CIA outranks Congress, or something like that (via the Weekly Standard):

The money quote: “It’s good to know that Nancy Pelosi took torture as seriously as a ‘Don’t Cancel “Chuck” petition’.”
