The Mother of Lies: Betsy McCaughey On Jon Stewart

21 Aug

The woman largely responsible for the misinformation being peddled around the internet is Betsy McCaughey. On Thursday night, Jon Stewart interviewed her. Everyone needs to watch this.

If you’re for reform, it will probably make you very frustrated the majority of the time (as it did me), but you will occasionally get to laugh when Stewart manages to get a word in edgewise and make McCaughey look ridiculous. Of course, then she just keeps on going like nothing happened, and you’ll soon be frustrated again.

If you’re against reform, and more specifically, if you’re against reform because you think it means tax-funded abortions, coverage for illegal immigrants, “socialized” medicine, or “death panels,” — you need to know that this woman (not the text of the legislation she carries with her) is the source of that highly erroneous information. If, after you watch these clips, you still believe all of those things, then let me be the first to say to you, “The hope of having a rational debate about health reform between you and I has officially died.”
