If you haven't heard by now, billionaire investor Warren Buffett wrote an op-ed in the New York Times suggesting that the super-wealthy must be taxed at a higher rate. Predictably, conservatives weren't happy with the piece. Many pundits on Fox wondered why the second-richest man in America couldn't just send the IRS a check if he was so worried about the U.S. economy.

Stewart was not having it. He fought back last night on his popular show, suggesting conservatives and Fox News have no idea what they're talking about, especially when they bring up the dreaded "S" word: Socialism.

In lighter news, Stewart also had Anne Hathaway on the program. The actress discussed her guilty pleasures, which include watching Jersey Shore. But don't worry Anne, you're not alone. Nearly 8 million people tuned in to this week's episode.
