Jon Stewart Mercilessly Mocks Media and Republican Dummies for Obamacare Hysteria and Shutdown Stupidity

Watch the 'March of Dumbs.'

Jon Stewart ripped into House Republicans and Fox News for their ridiculous over-the-top Obamacare attacks, and their callous attitude towards a government shutdown and its effect on the poor last night.

"Thanks to the tireless efforts of a few brave House Republican morons we all get to celebrate the March of Dumbs," he said. One of the first dumbs was Rep. Todd Rokita,  a Republican from Indiana who said:

"We just want to help the American people to get through one of the most insidious laws created by man, that is Obamacare."

Stewart pointed out the absurdity of saying the effort to get people affordable healthcare is worse than not just American laws like Jim Crow and slavery, but the Nuremberg Laws and the medieval law that said hte king got to sleep with your bride on your wedding night.

He went on to lambast Sean Hannity for saying that the government shutdown was not personally affecting him.

"How bad can it be if it didn't personally effect Sean Hannity?" Stewart said. "I mean it's not like they closed Smith & Wollensky for private events."

There's much more. Watch:
