Jon Stewart mocks Palin over her blindness to spewing divisive vitriol
On his show Wednesday night, Jon Stewart mocked Republicans who freaked out over recent comments made by Vice President Joe Biden.
Biden had warned voters in Virginia that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was going to “put yall back in chains.” Republicans blasted Biden for the comment, a response Stewart described as “Defcon Apeshit.”
Romney told Obama to “take his division and anger and hate back to Chicago,” to which Stewart responded, “As a general rule, I find it helps not to frame a plea for national unity by insulting a major city within that nation.”
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin also criticized Biden, asking Fox News host Greta Van Susteren “to name one Republican who even comes close to what like the Alan Grayson, the Harry Reids, the Joe Bidens come up with and spew out to the American public.”
“I can’t think of one prominent Republican who talks the way that they talk,” Palin added.
Her comments prompted Stewart to play clips of Palin bashing Democrats and “left-wing liberal socialists.”
“So you don’t know of any prominent Republicans who spew divisive vitriol?” Stewart said. “There can only be two explanations for that. One, not even Sarah Palin believes she’s a prominent Republican anymore or, two, Sarah Palin can no longer hear herself speak. You can read about it in my new book The Luckiest Woman in America.”
