Jon Stewart featured a great segment last night on "The Apparent Trap" that Republicans like John Boehner fear if they walk into President Spider-Man's Obama's lair to talk over health care.

As a bonus, this clip also has a hilarious report from John Oliver about how Republicans' message of bashing public health care goes over with Hawaiians -- who have such a program in place statewide. It has a precious moment when a Republican woman babbles something about "He who pays the piper calls the tune." As Oliver says: "What?!!?"
