Samantha Bee on John McCain, Abortion, and Women’s Health

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

When I get back from paternity leave next week, I’ll start posting more substantive items again, but in the meantime, here’s a great clip from the Daily Show earlier this week.   In it (starting at about 2:50 – although the first couple of minutes about McCain’s memory and general use of scare quotes are quite funny as well), correspondent Samantha Bee gives a nice incisive (and at times ribald) critique of John McCain’s use of scare quotes around the word “health” when talking about abortion during the third presidential debate.   It’s worth watching.
