You know it’s bad when even Jon Stewart is fed up!

As the Republican Party partners with traditionally-hostile networks for upcoming presidential primary debates, conservatives are shaking their heads in disbelief. Though the GOP has said it’s trying to take better control over the process, the decision they’ve made appears to do exactly the opposite.
