On his show Monday night, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart skewered conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.

Stewart first noted that many of his viewers made whoopee while his show was broadcasting, but warned them against engaging in “sexy time” because of the following segment.

“Tonight you might want to post-bone those activities,” he said, “because while the show will still be employing the Spanish fly that is a comedic take on political news, we will be mixing it with the electrodes to your genitals that is this cat, human cold shower Rush Limbaugh.”

Limbaugh recently attacked Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke because of her testimony in Congress about contraception, calling her a “slut” and a “prostitute.”

“You’ve got to misunderstand so many things. One, he seems to believe that anyone using contraception is automatically having a ton of sex and that contraception is something women have to pay for every time she has sex and that nevertheless the women is benefiting from it financially from having all that dirty contraceptive fueled sex. ”

“Personally, I don’t get too worked up about things Rush Limbaugh says because he is — and has been for many years — a terrible person,” Stewart said. “So its Rush Limbaugh. Is it particularly vile Rush Limbaugh? Of course. That’s like saying this is a particularly pungent bucket of raw sewage mixed with rotting cow guts and typhoid.”

He ended his segment by observing that Fox News host Megyn Kelly had railed against the idea that employers should be required to cover contraception, speculating that Fluke had a “sense of entitlement.”

Stewart then played a clip of Kelly criticizing the fact that the United States was the only industrialized country that does not require paid maternity leave.

“You know where that maternity leave came from, right?” he asked. “Nine months prior, half a bottle of Chablis, DVD copy of the Notebook, scented candles. If you took maternity leave and employers were required to pay that for you, then we paid for you to have sex — which by the way, fine, you deserve it.”
