Jon Stewart Rips Michigan GOP For Vagina Controversy, Banning Woman Speakers (HuffPo VIDEO link)




VIDEO here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/19/jon-stewart-michigan-gop-vagina-video_n_1608421.html


Last Thursday, Republicans banned two Michigan lawmakers from speaking on the State House floor because of a "temper tantrum" they'd thrown the day before. Their offense? Using the word vagina in a debate about abortion.

The controversy is mostly attributed to Rep. Lisa Brown, who ended her address to her colleagues with, Im flattered youre all so concerned about my vagina, but no means no.

On Monday night's "Daily Show," Jon Stewart called the remark "a pretty decent vagina zinger," but he couldn't quite understand all of the controversy.

What are they worried about? Vaginas aren't like Voldemort or Beetlejuice. Invoking the name 'vagina' doesn't make them suddenly appear. Believe me, if it did, high school would have been very different for me.
