WATCH: Jon Stewart Mocks Hilariously Insane 2014 Campaign Ads

Jon Stewart got off another one of his famous lines last night about how unpopular Congress is: They're viewed "less favorably than the moment you smell vomit right before you're going to vomit." Luckily, there is a chance to throw the bums out coming up in the midterm elections.


Judging from some of the attack ads running around the country, the landscape is not too favorable though. It's not just Republicans. Democrats are running Obama-attack ads, and in some cases, refusing to be seen with him. "The President has two teenaged daughters," Stewart pointed out. "He's used to being shunned."

Alison Grimes, Mitch McConnell's opponent in Kentucky is being attacked for the fact that her father owns a business called, "Hugh Assburgers," boasting a menu replete with insulting, sexist items. like Abby's Hugh Ass and Charlotte's Big Rack.

In Alaska, two prizewinning fellows are duking it out, one by out-and-out lying about his opponents criminal justice background, the other by saying that these negative ads make him so mad, he just wants to shoot his television. And then he does.

Isn't this a great country? Watch Stewart's hilarious bit:
