Jon Stewart made more tasteless jokes at the expense of Kansas’ senior senator Wednesday on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” doing a bit about what he called “the stem cell prop comedy of Sam Brownback” on the Senate floor.
After a clip of Brownback pointing between an image of an eagle egg and an eagle and saying, “The egg is the eagle because the eagle comes out of the egg,” Stewart said, “By that logic, Sen. Brownback is a vagina.” After the laughs died down, Stewart added: “I’m going to guess that that sentence has never been uttered.”
After a clip of Brownback with a chart illustrating the life of a girl named Hannah who’d been adopted as an embryo, Stewart suggested Brownback would next pass around her placenta. And after the senator switched to Hannah’s embryo chart, mentioned earlier on this blog, and suggested that one of its depicted embryos was asking, “What, are you going to kill me?” Stewart broke in and said: “I have to say, if you have a talking embryo who is cognizant enough to wonder if you’re going to kill it, I say we don’t do research on those ones. And if we find them and identify them, perhaps one of them will grant us three wishes.”
