The Daily Show Goes To Berkeley, With Predictable Results
Correspondent (and former Marine) Rob Riggle of The Daily Show went to Berkeley to explore the Marine recruiting center controversy, disguised as a scarily accurate hippie throwback "to earn the trust of the locals." In classic, brilliant Daily Show style, Riggle basically points a camera at members of Code Pink and lets them bury themselves with their own absurd statements, leading to this satiric crescendo between Riggle and a Code Pinker:
Code Pinker: "Wars in general would stop if we didn't have weapons, just like violence in our streets would stop if we didn't have weapons."
Riggle: "So if we got rid of police we wouldn't have crime?"
Code Pinker: "Potentially."
