Jon Stewart: Fox Ready To Shred Constitution, Except For Guns

In considering Fox News commentators' response to the Boston bombings, Jon Stewart points out a huge contradiction between their pose as defenders of the Constitution and their willingness to shred its amendments. There's only one exception: the Second Amendment. In that case, as Sean Hannity puts it, "There’s no ambiguity." Watch:

STEWART: Yes, it turns out there’s only one amendment in our Constitution’s pantheon that is exempt from statistical analysis or emotional freak-out-itude, and it is the Second. So God help us if the Muslims ever decide to form a well-regulated militia. We’ll have no way to stop them.
