Given Dick Cheney's cold response to Wolf Blitzer's question about Mary's baby and how it's in contrast to what conservative groups like Focus on the Family -- who comprise the GOP's core political base -- have to say about it, Jon Stewart wonders if it was a legitimate question or if Blitzer was indeed "out of line." John Oliver and Dick Gephardt's lesbian daughter Chrissy join to chime in as well.
"Let's say Strom Thurmond, who advocated for segregation, let's say he ended up having a black daughter. Would it not point out the rank hypocrisy of his political positions and the cowardice in not fighting for the human rights for your own flesh and blood?"
This is why The Daily Show is such an invaluable resource. They poke fun at the hypocrisy of our political system yet take on the so-called taboo issues in a thoughtful way -- something you'll rarely see the cowardly mainstream media do.
