Stewart Tackles Midterms: Dems, GOP Running on ‘How Much They Hate Themselves’

Jon Stewart broke down the midterm elections in very stark terms tonight: the Democrats are running far away from Obama, and the Republicans are running away from themselves. Because rather than clear articulation of policy, the obvious solution here is to “wait for your opponent’s dick to slip out of his pants.”

Stewart ripped Kentucky Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes in particular for hedging on whether she voted for Obama or not. She claims she’s exercising her right to not have to share who she voted for, but Stewart pointed out she had no problems publicly boasting about voting for Hillary Clinton in 2008.

And between that and Republicans hedging on social issues all over the place, Stewart concluded the real race here is Democrats and Republicans running on “how much they hate themselves.”
