Jon Stewart: All the GOP’s Tyranny, Impeachment Talk Is ‘Bullsh*t’

Jon Stewart opened tonight’s Daily Show going after Sarah Palin’s “patented word sausages” on impeachment. Stewart suggested it’s probably “time to stop checking Sarah Palin’s Facebook page,” but the only reason he thought this was important was that elected Republicans have been making similar comments about impeachment.

With one slight caveat.

Plenty of House conservatives backed away from the idea of impeachment this week, and one even said that this would fire up Democrats and deter independents from the GOP. And to Stewart, that’s why “all this talk of tyranny is bullshit.”

He explained, “When your main concern when you’re deposing a tyrant is how it will affect your party’s chances in the upcoming midterm elections, that’s not tyranny.”
