Outbreak of postpartum compassion

Jon Stewart, most trusted newsman in America, if you are under 40, laughs at the hypocrisy of Faux News bubblehead Megyn Kelly.

Recently returned following birth of a baby, Kelly defended her entitlement to maternity leave. This is a giant shift from her earlier claims that such entitlements are nothing more than "tentacles that government has placed into our lives", the "first step towards socialism" and "the creation of a welfare state."

Stewart observes:
"They're really only entitlements when they're something other people want. When it is something you want, they'e a hallmark of a civilized society, a foundation of a great people."
As the great George Carlin said,
"Have you noticed that their stuff is shit and your shit is stuff?" (at 2:12)
