Video: Jon Stewart Skewers GOP Reactions to Rush Limbaugh's Attacks

| by Michael Allen

On his show Monday night, 'The Daily Show' host Jon Stewart skewered Republicans who refuse to condemn Rush Limbaugh's attacks on Sandra Fluke, whom Rush called a “slut” and a “prostitute” (video below).

Stewart said: “Personally, I don’t get too worked up about things Rush Limbaugh says because he is, and has been for many years, a terrible person. So it's Rush Limbaugh. Is it particularly vile Rush Limbaugh? Of course. That’s like saying this is a particularly pungent bucket of raw sewage mixed with rotting cow guts and typhoid.”

Stewart then rolled clips of Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Bill O'Reilly soft-peddling Rush's remarks and attacking the so-called "elite media."
