Jon Stewart Has Trouble With Sherrod Brown's Judicial Logic

The Daily Show tackled newly-minted Supreme Court judge Sonia Sotomayor last week, and more specifically, the endlessly entertaining but absolutely useless speeches both Dems and Republicans gave regarding the confirmation.

Two classics: First, a Republican who admits that he knows nothing about judicial affairs and says that Judge Sotomayor's legal intellect is way above his head. And then says he's voting against the confirmation and he knew it from the first minute her name came up.

Second, Ohio's own Sherrod Brown, who begins to wax poetic on qualifications for the bench and diabetes, and if you can't figure out what the two have to do with each other, you're definitely not alone.

Check out the video below.
