The Daily Show: November 8, 2006

Jon Stewart"Donkey Party" (haha): This has been a week of amazing break-ups. First, Britney and K-Fed (I, a solid Alternative Rock fan, am unusually excited about the return of hot-Britney) and now, Bush and Rumsfeld. Oh, hell yes.

Obviously, the Republicans aren't taking all the Democratic wins that well... As for the blue folks themselves, they don't quite know how to handle the concept of "victory" either. Senior Political Correspondent Rob Riggle briefly checked in, sporting a nasty black eye (due to a "way ward high five"). QUESTION: Is Riggle just, like, completely unable to find a suit jacket that fits? He's almost always either only in shirt and tie or wearing a creepy Ambramoff-ish trenchcoat. Senior Political Correspondent Dan Bakkedahl talked a bit about how Republicans didn't do enough negative campaigning. I stopped paying attention about a sentence in because I just noticed that Bakkedahl no longer has that creepy, bald/curly Frasier Crane hair. Instead, he has an awkward little combover. I uess it's more reporter-ish, in a way.

Senior Political Correspondent John Oliver talked about the impact of having Nancy Pelosi as the new Speaker. FACT: The new Pledge of Allegiance will be an excerpt from The Vagina Monologues. Then, Jason Jones talked about the life of an absentee ballot... as an absentee ballot. It was weird (and very true). I still can't decide if it was funny or not.

The night's guest was Governor Howard Dean. It was an interview via satellite. Boo. Anyway, Dean seemed really happy (and rightfully so). Jon apologized for making fun of the Democrats' doorknockers during Dean's last Daily Show appearance. "Seat of Heat": Jon tried getting Dean to make his HYEAAAH! noise again, but I don't think Dean picked up the hint. Or maybe he was just too embarrassed to do it again. Instead, he rang a rather pathetic BOO-YEAH.

Jon/Stephen: Stephen Colbert didn't feel so hot about all the new blue in Congress... Moment of Zen: Rummy likes to strut his bad ass to some K-Fed.

I think Dean did pick up on the hint, he started laughing when Jon mentioned something about "I promise not to play it again," I think he just didn't want to do the scream again. The audience picked up on it for sure, though.
