On Tuesday night, California Gov. Jerry Brown sat down to talk drought with L.A. Times publisher Austin Beutner.
On Wednesday night, some of Brown's loftier words at that USC talk made it onto "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."
"He's still good old Gov. Moonbeam putting the water scarcity in terms that anyone on 'shrooms can understand," Stewart said, before showing a clip of Brown waxing lyrical.
Watch the whole "Water in the West" conversation between Brown and Beutner.
