The most ironic statement in history

Perhaps you've seen the video on "The Daily Show". It's Jon Stewart's favorite "Moment of Zen". The actor Craig T. Nelson decries government bailouts, and says this to Glenn Beck:

"I've been on food stamps and welfare, did anybody help me out? No. No."

C'mon Craig, even The Beatles admitted they needed help.

"Help me if you can, I'm feeling down.
And I do appreciate you being round.
Help me get my feet back on the ground.
Won't you please, please help me, help me, help me?"
