Stewart Meets with Treasury Secretary

This past April, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner paid a visit to comedian Jon Stewart to discuss the economy.

Um... why?

“Jon Stewart is influential in America, so we took the opportunity for the two to meet and to discuss the economy,” is the response given by the Treasury spokesman.

Uhh... what? Because a comedian is influential (a sign of the times in and of itself), the treasury secretary goes to discuss the economy with him. I would say Glenn Beck, Ronald McDonald, or Justin Bieber have as much influence as Stewart does, why choose the liberal comedian? Is there some benefit to one or the other?

I'd like to see the minutes of that meeting.

For what it's worth, many politicians have been on Jon Stewart's show...including Ron Paul. XD

But, you do know that this meeting was in private at Stewart's office, right?

Apparently, Blogger is having a problem, because I know Bria left a comment here, and now I can't find it. Hm.
