(Newser) – John McCain and Lindsey Graham are very "troubled" by the idea of Susan Rice as secretary of state, but Jon Stewart on last night's Daily Show wasn't having any of their self-righteous anger, considering they're the very pair that helped march us into unnecessary war in Iraq with their talk of WMDs in 2001 and 2002—and unlike Rice, Stewart howls, "these two still refuse to acknowledge that invading a country based on information from a source named 'Curveball' was actually considered a pretty [expletive] idea by many at the time."

And then there's 2002's Condoleezza Rice, who Stewart labels "another high-ranking government official passing what they knew at the time was misleading intelligence to the American public, on a Sunday news show, also in line to become secretary of state, and was African-American, and a woman, and let's say her name was also Rice." But when she talked about Iraq building nuclear weapons, which "she knew ... was bulls**t at the time," McCain and Graham defended her loudly.
