The Daily Show: May 16, 2007

Jon Stewart"Masters of Debate": Senior Political Analyst Jason Jones covered the second Republican debate. So much goodness in this one segment... "I bleed Christ, and I shit tax cuts!", Jewington Analplay, Difficult Abortion Situation, Jon having fun with props, 24 references. I don't think I've ever had so much debate-related fun.

"News I'd Like to Fuck": Senior NILF Hunter Samantha Bee stopped by to talk about just how much attractiveness counts in news anchorladies ("ladies" is meant to be said with extra-sleaziness, like... "lay-deeez"). News-related sexual innuendo is always good. And of course attractiveness matters in the news world. Why do you think both ladies and gentlemen are into that silver fox Anderson Cooper? Journalistic integrity? I think not.

The night's guest was Don Rickles. Normally, I'm annoyed by comedians who do nothing but overhaul the interview but... this was THE Don Rickles. I sat back and respectfully listened and politely chuckled at his jokes. And then I realized I wasn't in the studio audience, and my eyes started glazing over. You're still neat, Mr. Rickles.

Jon/Stephen: Stephen Colbert called out Mitt Romney for getting soft on terrorists. Moment of Zen: Huckabee was throwing out John Edwards zingers. Oh, SNAP.

I dunno - fart jokes and re-editing clips of speeches so the speaker seems to be saying something absurd - that's pretty cheesy, unimaginative stuff - does anybody else think that the quality of the writing on TDS has declined since Ben Karlin left?

Can't Jon find a few more, funnier, Ivy-league educated Jews?

"Jewington Analplay" - is that secret code for Ed Koch?

I thought the fart jokes at John McCain's expense during the debate coverage were a cheap laugh, and below the quality of the show. I was surprised.

On the whole "News i'd like to fuck" segment i'm surprised they didn't bring up the women from CNN Headline News cus there are plenty of beautiful anchors there except for nancy grace.
