15. your moment of levity: America, Meet the Mouth of John Burton /

California Democratic Chairman John Burton has a certain way of talking that is familiar and even entertaining to those who know him, but the Daily Show seemed genuinely shocked to discover a politician who doesnt give a shit about our Victorian sensibilities.

The issue at hand in the video below is Amazons battle with California to escape paying sales tax to the cash-strapped state. Or, as Burton puts it: because they dont want to have a goddamn sales tax like everybody else. PZS
