Jon Stewart criticize the big vaccine debate with equal scorn for Republicans like Rand Paul and “science-denying affluent California liberals.”
Stewart first mocked CNN’s “unnecessary hologram of measles floating through an airplane” before getting around to the fact that the measles is being spread in liberal enclaves. Stewart mockingly explained, “They’re not rednecks, they’re not ignorant, they practice a mindful stupidity.”
But Stewart also couldn’t help but mock Rand Paul (a.k.a. “Dr. Paul, Anecdote Man”) and Chris Christie for their hesitations on vaccines. He even bemoaned Obama coming out in favor of vaccines, because now half the country will want measles just on principle.
