Jon Stewart: Conservatives Gloat After Supreme Court Rules That America Can Kill People

On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart talked about the Supreme Court's very busy week last week. First, he brought up the Court's rulings on health care and gay marriage. Cue Bill O'Reilly, Ted Cruz, and Paul Walker decrying the Court's decisions. "Might as well get rid of the Supreme Court, save some money," faux populist Bobby Jindal said, pandering at a campaign event. 

But conservatives could take heart. "After a series of losses, conservatives get a victory at the Supreme Court," a Fox News host intones. Stewart is excited. What could it possibly be? "Can eagles drive now?" he jokes.

As it turns out, the grand conservative "victory" handed down by the Supreme Court is that states are still allowed to kill prisoners with questionable, untested lethal injection drugs. The Court also tossed out EPA pollution guidelines. 

"So gay people have the right to marry, and poor people have the right to insurance. But on the bright side Americans can still kill prisoners painfully ... and everyone else slowly," Stewart says. "What the f*ck!?"
