>> Jon: WELCOME BACK TO THE

PROGRAM.

AS WE JUST SAW IN THE FIRST

ACT, THE NATION CLEARLY IS IN

DIRE STRAITS WITH REGARDS TO

THE DEBT CEILING CRISIS.

FOR MORE ON ITS POSSIBLE

IMPACT WE'RE JOINED BY THE

DAILY SHOW'S SENIOR ECONOMIST

JASON JONES.

JASON, THANKS FOR JOINING US.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

.

JASON, IF THE EXPERTS ARE TO

BE BELIEVED, INACTION ON THE

DEBT CEILING AND DEFICIT

REDUCTION WOULD BE

CATASTROPHIC.

BUT THE NEGOTIATIONS HAVE THUS

FAR SEEMINGLY BROUGHT OUT THE

WORST IN OUR POLITICAL AND

PUNDIT CLASS.

>> THAT'S RIGHT.

AND IF THE CONVERSATION

CONTINUES THIS WAY, WE COULD

VERY WELL HIT THE NATIONAL

BULL (BEEP) CEILING.

>> Jon: THAT WOULD BE

CATASTROPHIC.

>> THAT'S RIGHT.

AS YOU KNOW, JON, THE NATIONAL

BULL (BEEP) CEILING OR TO PUT

IT IN LAYMAN'S TERMS THE

AMOUNT OF BULL (BEEP) PEOPLE

ARE ACTUALLY WILLING TO TAKE

HAS BEEN FREEZING UP.

>> Jon: WHERE ARE WE WITH THE

BULL (BEEP) CEILING RIGHT NOW?

>> RIGHT NOW AMERICANS HAVE

PRETTY MUCH HAD IT UP TO ABOUT

HERE WITH THIS BULL (BEEP).

BY THE END OF THIS MONTH IT

SEEMS LIKELY WE'LL HAVE HAD IT

UP TO HERE.

BULL WOOEPWISE.

THE LAST TIME I CHECKED WE

DON'T HAVE POOH-GILLS.

>> Jon: WHAT WOULD THE

RAMIFICATION OF THAT BE?

>> HISTORICALLY THE BALANCE IN

OUR COUNTRY COUNTRY HAS ALWAYS

BEEN MONEY TALKS AND BULL

(BEEP) WALKS BUT THIS RECENT

SURGE HAS SO BLOATED BULL

(BEEP) IT IS NO LONGER

AMBULATORY.

WILLIAM JENNINGS BRIAN MUST BE

ROLLING OVER IN HIS GRAVE.

>> Jon: WILLIAM JENNINGS BRIAN,

WHAT DOES HE HAVE TO DO WITH

IT?

>> AS YOU KNOW HE WAS ONE OF

THE EARLIEST CRUSADERS AGAINST

(BEEP)-FLATION.

HIS FAMOUS 1896 SPEECH YOU

WILL NOT CRUCIFY MANKIND UPON

A CROSS OF POOP.

AS YOU KNOW JENNINGS NEVER

WORE BLUE.

>> Jon: CLEARLY A COUPLE OF

HISTORY MAJORS LAUGHED AT

THAT.

ANYWAY, I HAVE TO TELL YOU I'M

VERY IMPRESSED.

YOU REALLY KNOW YOUR BULL

(BEEP).

>> WELL, GOT A B.A.IN B.S.

>> Jon: WHERE DID YOU GO TO

SCHOOL?

BROWN?

>> VERY MATURE.

VERY MATURE, JON.

YOU KNOW VERY WELL I WENT TO

ANAL ROBERTS UNIVERSITY.

>> Jon: SO....

>> A GOOD SCHOOL.

>> Jon: SO FIGHTIN' FISHERS.

YOU KNOW, WE'RE CLOSE TO

HITTING THE BULL (BEEP)

CEILING.

WHY SHOULD WE WORRY.

>> JON, IF WE REACH THE POINT

WHERE THE AMOUNT OF BULL

(BEEP) EXCEEDS THE AMOUNT OF

ACTUAL THINGS, WE WILL

EFFECTIVELY DEFAULT ON

REALITY.

IT'S ALREADY STARTED

HAPPENING.

>> IF YOU WANT AN ABORTION YOU

GO TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

THAT'S WELL OVER 90% OF WHAT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD DOES.

>> WE DID CALL HIS OFFICE

TRYING TO ASK WHAT HE WAS

TALKING ABOUT THERE.

I JUST WANT TO GIVE IT TO YOU

VERBATIM HERE.

I SAYS HIS REMARK WAS NOT

INTENDED TO BE A FACTUAL

STATEMENT.

>> DID YOU SEE THAT?

WHEN JON KYL GOT CALLED ON

BUSINESS BULL (BEEP) RESPONSE

WAS TO GET ANGRY AT PEOPLE TO

EXPECT SOMETHING OTHER THAN

BULL (BEEP).

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

>> Jon: JASON, WHY CAN'T WE

JUST IN THIS TIME OF CRISIS,

WHY CAN'T WE JUST RAISE THE

BULL (BEEP) KREEL SOMETHING.

>> JON, THIS ISN'T AN

ARBITRARY FIGURE LIKE THE DEBT

CEILING.

THIS IS REAL.

AND IF WE CAN'T CUT THE BULL

(BEEP), THEN THERE'S ONLY ONE

SOLUTION.

WE AS A NATION NEED TO START

REPLACING (BEEP) WITH FARTS

FROM OUR BUTT.

>> Jon: COME ON, JASON.

>> FACTUAL ASSESS MANYS OF

REALITY-BASED TRUTHS OR FARTS.

WE NEED POLITICIANS AND

JOURNALISTS WILLING TO CALL

BULL (BEEP) ON THE BULL

(BEEP).

>> Jon: BUT YOU SAID THE FARTS

WOULD COME FROM OUR BUTT.

>> YES.

BOLD, UNCOMPROMISING TRUTH

TELLING.

BUTT.

WHY, WHAT DID YOU?

OH, FARTS FROM OUR BUTT.

JON, GROW UP.
