'The Food, the Bad, and the Ugly': Jon Stewart Mocks Food Safety Opponents

Watch Jon Stewart eat a hotdog ("I should have known you can't make flavor like that under proper conditions"), slurp questionable SpaghettiOs, and cue a montage featuring a true gem from Glenn Beck: "Now you might be thinking to yourself, 'Glenn, I think my food is already safe'—but that's just how stupid you are. They know better in Washington!"
