Sen. Claire McCaskill mocked over letters on The Daily Show

Posted By on Thu, Sep 8, 2011 at 9:42 AM

The United States Postal Service is in a dire financial situation. It might even shut down, which has Sen. Claire McCaskill all upset. During a hearing, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said the USPS seriously needs to consider laying off 200,000 people, but that stop-gap measures just wouldn't save the mail.

McCaskill had a different idea. She likes letters. Furthermore, Clairebear says, she didn't like it none too much when her kids would ask for money over text. So she has a suggestion: The USPS should start a marketing campaign to show Americans how awesome letter writing is. As the clip above shows, Jon Stewart thought that was a goofy idea.
