Jon Stewart on the Supreme Court's Supreme Mess

On yesterday's Daily Show, Jon Stewart waded into a Supreme Court case hyped to be bigger than Bush v. Gore and United States v. Nixon combined. Yes, it's the judicial showdown over the Affordable Health Care Act, which is giving the Supreme Court much more media spotlight than its camera-shy justices are used to. Amid all the high court's pomp and circumstance, Stewart can't help but notice that the protesters outside the courtroom and the lawyers within it can't seem to agree on what they're arguing about. "The two sides have drawn the battle lines," he says. "It's 'I believe preexisting conditions should not disqualify people from insurance coverage' verses 'I believe in freedom.'"
