Jon Stewart Slams Congress’ Inability To End ‘Armadebton’ (VIDEO)

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Jon Stewart last night had some tough words for Congress, berating politicians’ inability to broker a deal to raise the debt limit.

Responding to the latest debt limit offers from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), Stewart compared Congress to a skunk with its head stuck in a jar of peanut butter.Ouch. But there’s more.

“My question to Congress, and, I think, a question many Americans may be sharing as of tonight, is this: do you want out of this relationship so bad, but don’t have the balls to leave, so you’ve all decided to act like such giant assholes you force us to break up with you? Because if so, just get the fuck out.”
