Jon Stewart rips into Democrats for not passing the public option plan

What's wrong with these Senate Democrats? They couldn't pass their health care plan despite having a super majority? They had the numbers on the committee, too, but some of those mangy blue dogs voted against the amendments despite 65% national approval for the plan. Now wait a minute. While we're busy keeping the world safe for democracy, maybe we should protect the homegrown variety. Let's give the people what they want. Did I mention 65% of the public supports this? Maybe I'm a little fuzzy on civics--yes, I realize this is a Republic and not a Democracy (look it up)--but why doesn't the majority rule?

Why does the stupid 35% win?
