Jon Stewart took on the GOP's "war on women" during his opening segments Monday, first with highlighting the hypocrisy of the media firestorm over Hilary Rosen's comments and the Romneys' blatant hypocrisy on whether he respects "the dignity" of motherhood or not.
Stewart went after Fox "News" in both segments, who have been flogging this story for everything they can get out of it, trying to do damage control for Mittens given the Republicans' sinking poll numbers with female voters. I was glad to see someone finally go after them as he did for their feigned outrage over the Democrats using the phrase the "war on women" when Fox has happily used the same type of language for everything from their fake "war on Christmas" to the "war on Easter" or the "war on food" or whatever their latest ridiculous outrage of the week is.
I could have done without the picture of the pregnant woman spread eagle his graphics department chose to use in the segment though. Tasteless addition to what was otherwise a pretty good summation of the rank hypocrisy we've been seeing from Republicans who would be content to take us back to the 1950's with women's reproductive rights and the desperation of the Romney campaign to now try to distance himself from the way his party is governing, or at least distract the voters from paying attention to it.
You can watch the second segment below the fold.
