Jon Stewart Blasts Republican 'Warfare Queens' For Prioritizing Military Action Over Domestic Spending

Stewart To McCain: 'Do You Do Anything But Complain Bitterly Anymore?'

Jon Stewart took the Republican party to the rhetorical woodshed on Thursday, blasting them for touting military intervention at every opportunity while blocking domestic spending.

After mocking McCain and company for suggesting further intervention in Iraq as a solution to the destabilizing effects of the United States' previous intervention, Stewart made the point that the GOP solution to every world crisis is sending in troops.

"There is apparently no country Republicans will not put under the protection of the United States. Well, except one ..." He then rolled clip after clip of reports of GOP legislators blocking domestic policies. As Stewart laid it out, Republicans seem to have no problem spending money they say America doesn't have as long as it's not being spent to help Americans.

He wrapped the segment up by putting the problem in terms that the right could understand: "I'm really worried about the Republicans. Their inability to wean themselves off of military intervention. They have a culture of defendency, if you will. I believe it's turned them all into warfare queens."
