Ezra Klein posts about the length of bills and why whining about it is a lameness.
Some weeks ago on The Daily Show (TDS), Jon Stewart even pulled this complaint out when questioning someone about Health Insurance reform (was it Howard Dean? Not sure.)
I thought a great way to answer it would be to ask Stewart a question in response:
"Jon, your contract should basically be a short sentence: 'I, Jon Stewart will host TDS for x years and Comedy Central will pay me Y dollars.'"
"Now, Jon, how many pages long is your actual contract?"
