Jon Stewart Plays a Disturbing Game with the Laboratories of Democrac

The Atlantic

State lawmakers have it in their minds to regulate all kinds of things, which means last night Jon Stewart played a new Daily Show game he likes to call "Sodomy! Zygotes! Welfare!" Watch as he tells us about Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who wants to forbid oral and anal sex and keep the state's anti-sodomy laws. This prompts Stewart to do some intentionally bad stand-up. He travels to Tennessee, where Dickensian villain state senator Stacey Campfield wants to cut welfare benefits for people whose kids don't get good grades. You don't even want to know what Campfield thinks about AIDS.

Of course Stewart is funny about all of this, but it's also incredibly depressing. Enjoy the trip through the laboratories of democracy:
