Elizabeth McCaughey has gained attention recently as being the source of the “Death Panel” discussions that have brought our news networks to a halt time and time again. Leave it to John Stewart over at The Daily Show to pwn her on national television and cause her to leave her position as the director of Cantel Medical the next day. Congratulations John Stewart: you officially pwn the death panel.

Here’s an excerpt from the press release on Friday, August 21st, 2009:

“CANTEL MEDICAL CORP. (NYSE: CMN – News) announced that on August 20, 2009 it received a letter of resignation from Ms. Elizabeth McCaughey as a director of the Company. Ms. McCaughey, who had served as a director since 2005, stated that she was resigning to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest during the national debate over healthcare reform.”

Resigned? After her performance on The Daily Show, I’m surprised she wasn’t tarred and feathered. John Stewart, yet again, has delivered what other “news correspondents” could not, and publicly debunked most everything the poor woman was trying to say.

Part II – Extended Interview (great stuff here too)

She agreed numerous times to points John Stewart was making in such an absent fashion that the audience could do nothing more than laugh and applaud. She also referred to John Stewart as one would a small dog whilst calling him cute, and “good at arithmetic” in such a Palinesque fashion that I thought a “youbetcha” would erupt at any moment.

Well done John Stewart. Well done.
