Jon Stewart Rips into GOP's White Male Situation

GOP appoints just one woman to chair a House committee.

Despite the GOP’s resounding loss at the presidential level of this year’s election, Republicans appears dead set on continuing the old discriminatory antics that have run the party into the ground.

The GOP’s appointment of only white men to the House committee chairs caused a flurry of outrage and confusion last week. It was a particularly devastating decision for the GOP to make because Romney’s defeat was widely viewed as the deathblow to the GOP’s old boys’ club.
This week, House majority leader John Boehner tried to remedy the white male situation by appointing Representative Candace Miller to the position of House Administration Committee Chair. But, as Jon Stewart searingly points out, this post is really just the position of House Wife--a secretarial job that has been handed to the one woman on the committee.
Ironic or not? Watch his commentary to decide for yourself:
