The Daily Show: March 29, 2007 - VIDEO

by Annie Wu, posted Mar 30th 2007 8:38AM
Jon StewartFirst up, coverage of Karl Rove being, um, super-hip at the Radio-Television Correspondents' Dinner. "Let's say Jeffrey Dahmer came to your Bar Mitzvah and turned out to be a great dancer... He's still Jeffrey Dahmer." Oh, Brad Sherwood and Colin Mochrie... For even participating in this event, you two have disappointed me so. I think everyone should experience the horrid sight of MC Karl Rove bustin' a move, because after seeing it, all the sad things in life don't seem so bad anymore. As service to society, I have included the video in this post after the jump.



"Indecision V. 2.008": 2008's presidential candidates are taking to the Interwebz. The bit about John McCain's hacked MySpace was my favorite...

"Iranian Hostage Crisis: The Next Generation": Jon had to meet Iran at Camera Three because of the new hostage situation. Hearing John Oliver's lovely accent utter the words, "We will fuck you up" was wonderful.

Jon's tie suddenly changed, so I guess this segment came from a different night... Senior Black Correspondent Larry Wilmore stopped by to share his thoughts about Disney's first-ever black princess. Sorry, Larry, Mulan was not of royalty, so I'm still waiting for a Chinese princess. Maybe Disney should do a film about a Chinese blogger-princess. I'd see it. By the way, I think it's about time that Larry Wilmore gets a name for his segments. Maybe "Back in Black"? Oh... wait...

The night's guest was Philip Zimbardo, author of The Lucifer Effect: Understanding How Good People Turn Evil. He also developed the Stanford prison experiment, which I was extremely interested in learning more about. I thought this interview was pretty good, mainly because Jon, a former Psychology major, brought up some pretty interesting points in his questions.

Jon/Stephen: Stephen Colbert is such an emo kid. Moment of Zen: John Edwards is a pretty, pretty princess.

Apparently, Mulan II featured not one, but *three* princesses:

I think Disney feels safe that between a Chinese protagonist in a feature film and some princesses in the sequel, they've covered the Chinese princess thing and will probably move on to another group.

That, and the fact that working talking animals into it might prove difficult, probably means your as-yet-untitled Chinese blogger-princess movie won't get made. So sad.
