Stewart Jabs Sebelius, Rips Into ‘Grandstanding’ Congress for Insane Obamacare Hearing

Both Obamacare and Congress have been potent Daily Show targets, so when both come together, well, that’s just a comedic goldmine for Jon Stewart, who went after both Thursday night over the Congressional hearing on what the hell went wrong with the Obamacare rollout.

Stewart was thrown by Sebelius taking responsibility and Congress actually asking “surprisingly relevant questions,” but he was back in full mockery mode when Republicans and Democrats alike invoked The Wizard of Oz, with this message for the Democrats.

“You’re really gonna use the Wizard to defend your program, how great it is? Did you watch the movie? The Wizard is a charlatan!”

He proceeded to skewer each and every instance of “impressive grandstanding” and “populist nonsense,” including a particularly bizarre impression of one Southern Republican.

Stewart also took on Marsha Blackburn for touting how important the hearing was, only to ditch it to appear on Fox Business Network to tell them literally the same thing she said in the hearing.
