The Daily Show host Jon Stewart ran a satirical segment (via Apple 2.0) on last night's show about Apple CEO Tim Cook's appearance in front of a U.S. Senate Committee examining the tax strategies of multinational corporations.
Stewart suggests that a number of Senators are Apple fanboys for praising Cook and his company, as well as questions asking Apple executives what they think should be done with the tax code.
Though the embedded video below is Flash-based, iOS users should be able to view the clip at The Daily Show's website.

The unmitigated gaul of the Senators to do this witch hunt about paying taxes (which Apple is fully in compliance with, btw), while the people running the IRS are straight up lying about specifically targeting mom & pop political groups who dared to exercise their 1st ammendment rights is astounding.
FYI, these "mom and pops" were registered as non-profit social welfare groups which are strictly prohibited from getting involved in political campaigns. And they did.
See, everyone loves to play the victim. Even you.
