Jon Stewart Rips Kansas Rep's Child-Beating Bill Published: February 21, 2014

Not much surprises Jon Stewart when it comes to politicians, but a new bill proposed by a Kansas representative that would allow people to legally hit children harder has done just that, according to The Huffington Post.

"Chew on that for a little bite," Stewart said, giving a fake pitch for the bill that would allow parents to hit their kids to the point of bruising, and even give them the authority to let other people strike them.

"'Hello, my name is Rep. Gail Finney. Are you holding back from punching the sh*t out of your children because you fear legal repercussions? Well, fear no more, your nightmare is over! While theirs is just beginning.'"
