See Jon Stewart skewer George Bush's devotion to abandoned stem cells compared to the actual lives of victims of war in Iraq and Lebanon.
Here's a partial transcript:

Bush: I think it’s important to promote a culture of life. I think a hospitable society is a society where every being counts and every person matters.

[End clip]

Stewart: Every being counts. Every person matters.

[Clip of George W. Bush at a press conference]

Bush: How many Iraqi citizens have died in this war? Um, I would say thirty thousand, more or less.

[End clip]

Stewart: Each one precious. Each one… Each one sacred-ish. As it turns out there seems to be a bit of a loophole in the ‘culture of life’ promotion thing.
