Remember when the Democrats ruled the Senate, and the Republicans owned the House?

"Nothing got done," Jon Stewart says.

On his show Monday, Stewart argued that nothing has changed -- even after the GOP "Red Wedding'd the Democrats" in November and took over the Senate majority. Heck, the "unstoppable tag-team" of Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker John Boehner is feuding.

So, who are the "turds clogging our legislative plumbing," as Stewart puts it?

Only he and Boehner's awesome kissy face know the answer. Watch the clip above.
