After being away last week, Jon Stewart got a chance to go after these hypocritical Catholic bishops for their opposition to the new health care mandate to cover contraception as only he can:

STEWART: Yes! We are men of god! That money must not be used for contraception! That money has been set aside for out of court alter boy settlements and of course, some priest relocation. Respect our authority! Seriously? A firestorm among "many Catholics" or the old dudes who run it? [...]

Old dudes who run it. Check.

Stewart got some good knocks in on Santorum, Gingrich and now the GOP for going off the cliff with their proposition for any employer to be able to deny health care coverage for "moral" reasons as well. Once again here, we've got the comedian pointing out how far off the Republicans have gone off the rails, while the media fails to do their job.

And speaking of media failures, more with Stewart nailing Hannity for his panel full of more crusty old white dudes as supposed "experts" on women's reproductive rights and the wingnuts out there pulling the Hitler card when claiming to be persecuted over this matter below the fold.

Can you help us out?
