(Newser) – Jon Stewart turned his attention once more to the Gulf spill, or, as he likes to call it, Day 59 of the Strife Aquatic—which means he naturally had to rip into Joe Barton and his mea culpa, which Stewart likened to saying something as sensible as: "It pains me today to sit here today and see Jeffrey Dahmer remanded to a cubicle. It's an effort by the government of these United State to pretend that brains is not delicious." Then he half screams, "I don't like you!" before going on to brand Barton a "disdainful asshole." Watch.
