On Tuesday's "Daily Show," Jon Stewart weighed in on the Rush Limbaugh contraception controversy, wondering why comments from the "radio shock blob" have caused an uproar when his past programs have been littered with outrageous statements. Stewart also criticized Fox News for equating Limbaugh's tirade to Bill Maher's comments about Sarah Palin. "I guess by bringing up Bill Maher, Fox is saying, 'We're even, right? Offsetting penalties. Let's all get back to what really matters: whether Obama is a Sunni or a Shiite.'"
