Jon Stewart lashed out at Republican opposition to the prospect of a non-military solution to Syria’s chemical arsenal on The Daily Show Monday.

To many conservatives, Stewart argued, “international diplomacy is like a glory h*le: Just stick it in, and you worry about the consequences later.”

Stewart took particular issue with Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) calling negotiations between the U.S. and Russia to take the weapons down “a debacle,”

“This is a debacle,” Stewart said with a mocking faux-Southern lilt. “I have not seen a disaster such as this since I arrived at the Beauregard Cotillion with a magnolia in my hair when everyone else was wearing orchids. I mean, talk about a debacle.”

Stewart resumed the accent after playing a clip of Graham saying he wanted to “punish” Syrian President Bashad al-Assar.

“I wanted to see him squirm,” the host said. “I wanted to tie Assad up and spank his taut Syrian … I’m getting the vapors. You can read all about it in my new book, Fifty Shades of Graham.

Watch Stewart lambaste Graham and conservatives who insist a military action against Syria is “off the table,” as posted on YouTube by “CoffeeAndNews32″ on Monday, below.
