An Extremely Giddy Austan Goolsbee Tells Jon Stewart: I Feel Bad Obama Has To Be Around The Folks In Washington

Austan Goolsbee, the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers for one more day before he bolts back to Chicago, was on Jon Stewart last night.

And boy was he happy to be getting out of D.C.

“You’re giddy as a schoolgirl!” said Stewart.

Said Goolsbee:

Once you get to Washington there’s only so long you can go.  There are a number of people there who’s tray tables are not in the full, upright and locked position [huge applause].  Eventually you just have to get on with it.  I feel bad the president’s got to be around these folks for years to come.

Responded Stewart:  “Well, you know he doesn’t have to.”
