Jon Stewart Rips Apart Supreme Court's Campaign Donations Ruling (VIDEO)


On Thursday's "The Daily Show" Stewart declared that because our judicial system gave the green light to billionaires to wear out their checkbooks, "the last great hope of preserving our democracy from the corrupting influence of money is carpal tunnel syndrome."

He then ripped apart Justice Antonin Scalia -- drawn in a hot tub full of greenbacks -- for writing off $3.5 million dollars as not a "heck of a lot of money."

If the Supreme Court still doesn't think money has a general corrupting influence on politics, Stewart said, all the justices need to do is look at all the Republican presidential contenders who tripped out to Las Vegas last weekend to "kiss the scooter-riding ass" of super donor Sheldon Adelson.
