Jon Stewart Asks If Anyone's Conservative Enough For The Tea Party

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart takes a look at the right wing turning on John Boehner, Paul Ryan and St. Ronnie.

Following the passage of the lousy bipartisan budget deal that finally managed to make its way through the Congress this week, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart took some shots at the so-called "tea party" Republicans, their dust up with House Speaker John Boehner, and the fact that Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. John Cornyn are now no longer considered "conservatives" by the wingnuts on the right.

Note to Jon Stewart -- it's nothing new that the GOP has moved so far to the right that their patron saint Ronald Reagan would no longer be welcomed in the party and called a RINO. And there is no "tea party." It's an AstroTurf movement funded by a bunch of billionaires designed to get the Bush-stink off of the word Republican so they could pretend none of them are responsible for the damage that was inflicted on our country while they had control of our government.
