Daily Show Takes on Right-Wing Insanity on Women in Combat: Should Women Expect to Be "Paid Slightly Less, Raped Slightly More?"

It was quite the week for inappropriate comments about women in the military, from Rick Santorum's assertion that their emotions would get in the way and men would risk themselves to protect them, and then Fox News personality Liz Trotta who declared that the high incidence of rapes in the military were to be expected.

In a one-two punch last night, Jon Stewart replied to both these absurd statements: "Rick Santorum says women can't serve because they'll trigger men's chivalrous nature, Liz Trotta says they shouldn't  serve because they'll trigger men's baser natures."

Finally, there's a third segment featuring Samantha Bee who jokes about men's supposed lack of self-control: "we expect to be paid slightly less and raped slightly more." And her sarcastic explanation of feminism is precious.
