Jon Stewart
shifted gears from covering the presidential race to looking at more
local races, and what Republican candidates have been saying in their
races. With Republican after Republican upping the ante on outrageous
and borderline ridiculous statements, Stewart had to ask how “these
fucking crazy people make it to the national stage” in the first place.

Stewart explained that whatever one may think of the men running for
the presidency, they are at least the “cream of the crap” when compared
to others in Washington. He started with Todd Akin,
whom Stewart reminded viewers once waxed philosophical on the “vagina’s
magical powers.” Akin has been widely condemned for his remarks, but
Stewart highlighted a reverend who defended Akin and even went so far as
to compare him to Jesus Christ.
The next Republican on Stewart’s list? Allen West,
running an attack ad bringing up his Democratic opponent’s arrest in a
bar fight many years ago. As Stewart noted, it’s a choice between “an
uncontrollable lunatic and the other got thrown out of a bar once.”
Congressman Joe Walsh, meanwhile, has been attacking his opponent Tammy Duckworth
for constantly bragging about her military service, which Stewart
rebutted by bringing up none other than Allen touting his own military
service. Stewart asked, “Can I be there when you tell Allen West he’s
not a true hero?”
Stewart also mocked Paul Broun, a Republican running
unopposed who said evolution and the big bang are “lies from the pit of
hell,” and asked of him and his ilk, “How do these fucking crazy people
make it to the national stage?” The answer: by being less crazy than
local legislators, one of whom actually touted slavery as a positive for
African Americans.
