Veto Aside, Jon Stewart Rips Arizona a New One

Categories: Laugh Track

The Arizona Legislature has proved incapable of sneaking craziness past the Daily Show.

Although Governor Jan Brewer announced Wednesday evening that she had vetoed SB 1062, the so-called "religious freedom" bill, the Daily Show and host Jon Stewart already had their smackdown of Arizona ready to go.

There was so much Arizona-bashing that it doesn't fit into one video clip online:

Part one:

Part two:

If you watch the clips, then you know that the entire segment isn't dedicated to Arizona-bashing, but it's evident that even before Stewart's bits, SB 1062 did extreme harm to Arizona's image, even though it didn't become law.

As Stewart put it, while mentioning SB 1070 and the state's voter-ID law, and noting that at least Arizona has good weather, "If you had your attitude in Seattle's weather, you would be the world's largest used condom and nuclear waste dump."

"nobody showed us why not to sign it"???????? just sign anything in front of you without reading it or looking into what it will do??? "this is bad for Arizona"? really?? not the idiots who just signed it without thinking about it first? maybe its just me, but if thats how you pass laws, you are worse for Az than that bill would have been

As we learned with USAPATRIOT, our legislators don't read shit before passing it. Personally, I think they should be charged with treason for subverting the process with their lazy incompetence.
