Jon Stewart : On Sarah Palin Hypocrisy

Jon Stewart : On Sarah Palin Hypocrisy

Wednesday night on “The Daily Show,” Jon Stewart hit Karl Rove and Bill O”Reilly with damning evidence of their hypocrisy regarding Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin.


While Rove recently praised Palin”s experience as the mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, Stewart showed video of Rove trashing Virginia Governor — and former Richmond Mayor — Tim Kaine”s executive experience, listing all the cities that are bigger than Richmond and calling such a pick “political.”


Then, after recent video of O”Reilly describing Bristol Palin”s pregnancy as a family issue, Stewart showed a clip of the Fox News host blaming Jamie Lynn Spears” parents for her teenage pregnancy.


Finally, after showing video of Dick Morris complaining about the rampant sexism in the media coverage of Sarah Palin, Stewart unveiled a clip of Morris saying that Hillary hides behind the sexism defense, and that anytime “the big boys” pick on Hillary, “she retreats behind the apron strings.”


“In Dick Morris” defense,” Stewart said, “he is a lying sack of sh*t.”
