Apparently this comes from the show Newsroom, which I've never seen. Probably the most accurate monologue I've heard in any medium in years...
"You may think that you are some kind of god to these people. But we both know what you really are."
"What's that? A criminal?"
"Worse. A politician."

Its a decent show. I enjoy it, though it gets a bit to left-leaning sermony for my taste from time to time. Sometimes Sorkin hits the nail on the head and other times he sets up debates just to knock them down while preaching.
Liked this rant in particular from the show:
Terrorist attack count against the Anything Goes Thread: 2
I love this show. And that speech in the original post hits it dead on. When I first watched that speech on HBO I was riveted.
One time we mixed a bulldog with a shiatsu. We called it a bull****.
