The individual states are popularly supposed to be the laboratories of US democracy where many ideas can be tried out and the best ones then adopted nationally. The Daily Show takes a look at some of the ideas that being proposed in states that, as we repeatedly told by idiotic politicians, represent the ‘real’ America, without them ever explaining why the rest of America in the big cities and the coasts are any less American.
First up, corporal punishment is advocated in Kansas.
Next they are considering making taking science optional in Missouri if those classes include evolution.
And of course, there are the ever-popular anti-gay moves in Kansas and Arizona.
