Jon Stewart Rails Congress On Sequester Cuts, Calls It 'Auto-Erotic Asphyxiation' (VIDEO)

The sequester cuts have gone through, which means Jon Stewart has a fresh cup of "are you f*cking kidding me" to throw in congress' face on our behalf.

He got right to it on Monday's "Daily Show", first outlining the incompetence that led to the cuts taking effect, equating it with congress performing auto-erotic asphyxiation. He then briefly marveled at the red herring that was social media's reaction to Obama flubbing a Star Wars reference, all the while ignoring the fact that John Boehner flat-out called taxes theft. Finally, Stewart brought the auto-erotic asphyxiation metaphor home by outlining who is actually paying the price for such a dumb idea. Spoiler: it's not congress. "Somehow, we're the ones blacking out and they're still jerking off."

Watch part one above and parts two and three below. Do you think Stewart's metaphor works and are you feeling the effects?
