While We Fight For Birth Control Coverage, Medicare Is Spending Millions On Penis Pumps

It's A Whole New Brand Of Double Standard!

We know that conservative Republicans go batshit insane over the idea of the Affordable Healthcare Act covering preventative health care like birth control. But thanks to “The Daily Show,” we now know that America has bigger problems, literally: Medicare is spending millions on penis pumps. The program has spent $172 million in the past five years, to be exact. Apparently there are a lot of limp penises in need in the United States. How did contraception manage to be considered a more controversial use of government money than a contraption that makes your dick big and hard? Of course, Samantha Bee addresses this hypocrisy in a way that nobody else could. [NARAL]

Watch John Oliver Bid Farewell To “The Daily Show”

We'll Miss You, John!

Last night was John Oliver’s last episode on “The Daily Show” as he gears up to host an HBO comedy series next year. He spent over seven years with the show, and even stepped in as host this summer. Jon Stewart refreshed audiences on some of Oliver’s best moments and made for a teary farewell. I couldn’t watch it without tearing up myself. Best of luck, John! [NYMag.com]

Women's War Daily

Jon Stewart’s latest crusade: picking apart the right-leaning backlash stemming from Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s decision to allow women to serve in combat roles.  A former U.S. Marine penned a piece in the Wall Street Journal [second item] fretting that in combat soldiers often have to urinate and defecate in front of each other — often in close proximity to a fellow soldier’s face. Stewart points out: In a war zone, are you really worried about “dying from embarrassment?” Keep reading »

Kristen Helps Republicans Vajazzle Their Message

Once upon a time, Kristen Schaal from “The Daily Show” was a selfish single woman just like me, only caring about where her next free “whore pills” came from. But just as conservative pundits say, once she became a married woman, Schaal suddenly cared about the future of this country. You know, like a married lady does. Here is Schaal on why that ring around her finger made her throw support behind Mitt Romney. [The Daily Show]

"Boy you are better off, kick her to the curb!"

Last night, Jon Stewart went easy on Robert Pattinson, whose appearance on “The Daily Show” was his first since his ‘Twilight” co-star/girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, was busted publicly cheating on him with director Rupert Sanders. Jokingly (but sweetly) offering him a pint of Ben & Jerry’s, Stewart said that for young people, breaking up sometimes feels “like the would is ending … this is the first time I’ve seen the world react that way.” An awkward situation, graciously handled by both fellows. Clip above!

Watch Louis C.K. Explain To Jon Stewart
  • Comedian Louis C.K. hit up “The Daily Show” last night and addressed his tweet from last week that seemed to be in support of Daniel Tosh’s rape joke. C.K. said he was in Vermont on vacation and not following the controversy raging on the Internet; he sats innocently watched an episode of “Tosh.0″ and was compelled to tweet at Tosh that he liked his show. Then when he got back from vacation, he realized that he was getting called a “rape apologist” and had no idea what was going on. [The Daily Show] Keep reading »

Yay: Huffington Post Has A “Sideboob” Section Now

It’s no secret that Huffington Post has some pretty ridic sections on its voluminous site. The idea behind the massive conglomeration of categories is to cover and “win” as many kinds of content on the web. We get that. But yesterday, after Jon Stewart made fun of all the sideboob on HuffPo on “The Daily Show”, the site countered by mocking up a whole sideboob section on the site. It’s all too real, don’t you think? What’s next? A dick pic section?

Jon Stewart took on Rush Limbaugh’s “slut” slur on last night’s show and put it best, as always: “Personally, I don’t get too worked up by the things Rush Limbaugh says because he is, and has been for many years, a terrible person.” This is so amazing, I have nothing better to say than put your headphones on and watch it.

Last night on “The Daily Show,” Jon Stewart was freaking hilarious in his coverage of last week’s anti-birth control sausagefest in Congress, in which a panel of all dudes tried to argue against President Obama’s health care reform compromise. Did you know these men mentioned “spiritual rape,” whatever that is, and Josef Stalin? When you have to invoke Stalin (or Hitler, or Mussolini, although let’s be honest, no one invokes Mussolini) into an argument to get people on board, you know you’re reaching. [The Daily Show]
