Citáty Jon Stewart

„Obama kandidoval jako vizionář, zemi ale řídí jako funkcionář.“

„Yes, reason has been a part of organized religion, ever since two nudists took dietary advice from a talking snake.“

„Religion. It's given people hope in a world torn apart by religion.“

„I've been to Canada, and I've always gotten the impression that I could take the country over in about two days.“

„Yes, the long war on Christianity. I pray that one day we may live in an America where Christians can worship freely! In broad daylight! Openly wearing the symbols of their religion... perhaps around their necks? And maybe -- dare I dream it? -- maybe one day there can be an openly Christian President. Or, perhaps, 43 of them. Consecutively.“
