Daily Show Hits the "Meth Lab of Democracy" Again to Show Government Gridlock Isn't Bad
Yet again, Comedy Central'sDaily Show with Jon Stewart
found a reason to hit up Arizona -- or the "meth lab of democracy," as its host calls it.

While the party makeup of Congress essentially is the same, people are complaining about the "gridlock" that's presumably going to take place for the next couple of years.
Leave it to the Daily Show to provide an example of government not being so great without gridlock -- in Arizona, of course.
With the Republicans' supermajority at the Legislature last time around, Democratic state Senator David Schapira provided a few examples of what can get done without "gridlock": a state gun, stopping a United Nations conspiracy, and giving doctors the option to just not tell pregnant women about any birth defects their child may have.
Of course, there's also mention of S.B. 1070.
It's also hilarious, so enjoy.
