Jon Stewart hammers ‘fat motherf*ckers’ in Congress with ‘Schoolhouse Rock’ update

In light of Congress’ turn toward the “childish and cynical,” Daily Show host Jon Stewart said on Tuesday, the classic Schoolhouse Rock song “I’m Just A Bill” needed an update.

“I’m just holding my d*ck as I sit here and wait, while these fat motherf*ckers hold a phony debate,” the titular Bill laments in the new version. “I can’t take it anymore, I’m done, I’ll buy a gun and my brains I will spill on the steps of Capital Hill.”

Stewart pointed out that, instead of actually trying to pass legislation, Republicans and Democrats are locked in a game of one-upmanship: Democrats will advance hopeless proposals in order to use the bills as fodder for election attack ads against the GOP, while Republicans run out the clock on the legislative calendar so that they can avoid voting on “volatile” issues before the elections.

“Democrats and Republicans are on a bad date,” Stewart explained. “Democrats know the Republicans don’t want to be there. And Republicans know that the Democrats know that Republicans don’t want to be there. So in their cynicism, the Democrats have asked, ‘Wanna see the dessert menu?’ And out of spite, the Republicans have said, ‘Bring over the whole f*cking cart. And the espresso machine, ’cause I can do this all night long. You know what? We’re not gonna have sex, but I’m gonna make sure you’re don’t get to f*ck anybody else here.’”

As a result, he said, this Congress is on pace to be the least-productive in history.

2. How difficult is it for American voters to see through all the BS!

Enough already of the jihadist Rethuglicans.

Get people to register to vote. Get them to vote and sweet Mitch Mcconnell, John Boehner & Co. motherf--kers out! I don't care if you have to vote for a no-name Democrat! Any Democrat or write-in candidate is better than any Republican.

NO
MORE
REPUBLIS!

4. I usually really enjoy his program. But, would he suggest that the Democrats not propose any thing.

I firmly believe that the Democrats would be negligent if they did not expose the Republicans' objection to anything that would assist the working class. This can only be done by putting up the proposals for them to vote against or refuse to put to a vote. Is our government broke? Of course and it appears that it is headed for what I would consider a catastrophic situation if the Republicans gain control of both houses. If they do and they push for the impeachment of President Obama it could be the tipping point for massive social disobedience demonstrations. The situation could get pretty nasty real quick especially if the Red State governors called out the National Guard. It could be pandemonium.
