After some obnoxious partisan clips from Fox News of early reaction to the capture and subsequent death of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi, Jon Stewart asked “Is there no Republican that can be gracious and statesmen-like in this situation?"

He then played clips of Republican Senators Marco Rubio, Chuck Grassley, and John McCain praising the French and the Brits.

Stewart's reaction was to throw his hands up in the air in utter disgust.

The segment ended with the kids on Fox & Friends lamenting the successful removal of a tyrant, capturing the absurdity quite nicely.
