Last night, Republicans strong-armed a government shutdown over Obamacare, aka “The End of the World For Reasons No One Is Clearly Able to Explain,” as Jon Stewart put it.
Stewart, exasperated, explained the contradictory logic behind House Republicans’ desire to defund or delay the Affordable Care Act: “This bill is now a law vetted by the very system all these Republicans profess to love, but to hear the Republicans tell it, the whole thing could just be avoided if President Obama would meet them half way.”
“There’s no bridge! What divide?! It’s a [bleep] law!” cried Stewart.
He likened the shutdown to a football team rebelling against the NFL over a score: “Did you see the Giants game on Sunday? Okay, they lost 31-7. And you know what the Giants didn’t say after that game? ‘If you don’t give us 25 more points by midnight on Monday, we will shut down the [bleep] NFL,’” said Stewart.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
