Conservatives may have lost big last week with Supreme Court rulings in favor of both the Affordable Care Act and gay marriage, but Jon Stewart played a clip on Tuesday night showing the right had a couple of big wins this week.
“Did the Court reaffirm America as officially awesome?” Stewart wondered. “Did they declare Reagan on all of our currency? Can eagles drive now?”
Turns out, it wasn’t nearly as exciting.
The Supreme Court ruled in favor of Oklahoma’s controversial lethal injection drug, and against the EPA’s regulations on mercury and other toxic emissions from power plants.
“So yes, gay people have the right to marry, and poor people have the right to insurance — but on the bright side, Americans can still kill prisoners painfully and everyone else slowly,” Stewart summed up.
