Tea Party and the Right
Jon Stewart Begs, "Please Tell Me This Is Rock Bottom" After Republicans Thwart Treaty to Protect the Disabled
December 6, 2012
Yesterday, 38 Republicans in the Senate blocked the U.S. from signing on to a U.N. Treaty that declares equal rights for people with disabilities, throwing Jon Stewart into a fit of rage.
“How did that fail?” he cried.
Stewart promptly renamed the news segment to: “Please Tell Me this Is Rock Bottom,” and the proceeded to ridicule the various reasons that “Republicans hate the United Nations more than they like people in wheelchairs.”
Yet, he ultimately ended up with a solution to the problem: add “delusional paranoia” to the list of disabilities to incentivize Republicans to sign on.
