On Wednesday, Jon Stewart congratulated Ted Cruz on his admirable 21-hour stance in opposition to Obamacare. Unfortunately, he couldn't help but notice that the speech was long on Hitler and Ashton Kutcher references, and a little short on any salient arguments or actual ideas.

In fact, the very idea of Cruz rising in opposition to Obamacare "until I can no longer stand" was up for scrutiny as far as Stewart was concerned: "It's easy for you to take that kind of physical risk, you've got government healthcare."

Watch part one above where Stewart tries to make heads or tails of Cruz's actual point, and part two below where he unveils HIS favorite Dr. Seuss book, the slightly lesser known tale of "The Bore-ax."
