The knock on the Democrats for some time now has been that they're too timid, that they roll over every time they face a little opposition, even when public opinion is in their favor. And of course, despite the fact that the party now controls both the Executive and Legislative branches of government, and has a theoretically filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, the Democrats are not doing much to change that reputation lately. Below, Jon Stewart has a little fun at their expense, as only he can.
