(Newser) – It's great that we managed to avoid a government shutdown, but Jon Stewart isn't very happy with anyone involved. Last night, he excoriated everyone: the media that breathlessly counted down from 179 hours to two, the previous Democratic-controlled Congress that didn't pass a budget because they live in "Sucksylvania. Population: You suck," and of course, the Tea Party members who still aren't happy with this budget deal ... even though, as Rep. Mike Pence admitted, it's a "good" one.

"That's where we're at with the Tea Party?" Stewart said. "You can't even support good deals now? 'Well, it's a good deal, but some poor people remain oddly un-f***ed, so my constituents won't have it.'" Watch in the gallery or check out more Stewart.
