Fun Friday: TDS Tackles No-Copay Birth Control, Atheist Protest of Ground Zero Cross

I’m still washing out my eyeballs after last night’s “Daily Show With Jon Stewart” uncensored segment on Jason Jones’ vasectomy — good thing I didn’t go into medicine! Fortunately, the “Culture War Update: The Dividening of America” segment aired earlier in the program, poking fun at two faith-related newsmakers:

Dana Perino is apparently a real, if well coiffed, ass.

Remember when people got all up in arms about Janet Jackson — this was far, far worse.

Yes, it was on cable, but in the intervening years, the exposure gap between network and cable TV has narrowed, especially because the clips probably went viral within seconds today.
