The Daily Show's Jon Stewart with his take on the beating the Democrats just took this midterm election. After showing some of the media coverage from this Tuesday, and the predictable celebration over at Faux "news," Stewart wondered what the next order of business was going to be.

After playing clips of Sen. Rand Paul, Sen.-Elect Shelley Moore Capito, Sen. Jerry Moran, Rep. Paul Ryan and the turtle-man himself, Sen. Mitch McConnell all saying that the Congress should get together and work with President Obama, Stewart wondered:

STEWART: Who the f**k are you people?

Wow. That was... I've got to tell ya', that sound byte probably would have been better not coming from the guy who for six years has been one of the sole owners and operators of this country's Perpetual Conflictonator.

Stewart wrapped things up with Daily Show Senior Political Analyst Jason Klepper and a discussion of the GOP's "new" agenda now that they've taken back control of the Senate.

STEWART: This new, ungridlocked GOP, can the GOP follow through on their pledge to get something done for America?

KLEPPER: Can they? Last night, at approximately 11:27 EST, the Republicans gained control of the U.S. Senate and the results were almost immediate. The economy, now growing at a robust 3.5 percent. Gas this morning, under three bucks a gallon. Look, stock market at record levels. Deficits cut in half. Ten million more Americans have health insurance. And unemployment sub six percent for the first time since we elected "chairman" Obama.

STEWART: But wait. Hang on a second Jordan, because the things that you're describing...

KLEPPER: Even Ebola... look Jon... which was on the verge of destroying the country under Obama's feckless leadership has suddenly become a problem for like... one guy. It's morning in America Jon!

STEWART: Jordan, that is an incredibly impressive list that you ticked off of things that happened under Obama and the Democratic Senate.

KLEPPER: Oh please Jon, if Democrats had accomplished all of that, they would have been out there bragging about it for months. It would have been the central message of their campaign instead of their actual message, which was like, I'm quoting this here, "We're sorry, don't be mad! We don't like Obama either and we like guns too! Amen.

It would be funnier if there won't so much truth to it. Just watch the clip above for the rest.
