The Daily Show: June 28, 2007

Claire Danes"You Don't Know Dick": Wow, TDS is just full of Dick Cheney fun facts. This one was also a good one... Cheney invented his own secret classification "TREATED AS SECRET/SCI", which is so much better than "TOP SECRET" or "CLASSIFIED". He likes to use it on things that aren't really secret, like press talking points.

"Mexican Standoff": Resident Expert John Hodgman, author of My Grandparents Were Slov or Something (heh), talked about how illegal aliens are bringing over scary diseases like tuberculosis and leprosy. Beautiful choices of footage! I especially liked the Leprechaun goodness from Ellis Island.

iPhone news! Whee! Jon's makeshift iPhone was beautiful. I was expecting an iPod duct-taped to a cell phone, but his was so much better. Senior Technology Correspondent Rob Riggle went into a panic over the iPhone and even went as far as to sexually harass Gizmodo's Brian Lam, who got an early iPhone. Bastard. That final punchline about the 25 cents was actually really good. Nice job, Riggle.

The night's guest was Claire Danes, star of Evening. From what I heard, Danes was fun and the interview went smoothly. I was worried most of the time, because I kept thinking that she'd have a wardrobe malfunction. It didn't look like Danes was wearing anything under her top, which kept shifting dangerously. Perhaps I'm too easily distracted.

Moment of Zen: Fatal fireworks are fun, but they're best with mannequins in polo shirts.

The Daily Show and The Colbert Report are taking some time off, so start your crying now. Usually, when Jon and Stephen take time off, something crazy happens in the media or government and we don't get to hear their take on the situation until they get back the next week. This time around, they're taking two weeks off, so something REALLY HUGE is going to happen, I bet. Like, Dick Cheney will reveal that he's really Paris Hilton and then, when asked to report on this, Mika Brzezinski will explode into a thousand gold coins. Something like that.

She really doesn't have any "assets" to show.

Jon Stewart definitely had a view of Claire Danes assets throughout the interview. I think the camera might have once, too, and covered it with an ID graphic. Sweetie, either wear underwear or stop leaning forward in your loose blouse -- did your mother not teach you that?

That was the best episode of TDS I've seen in a while. Every time John Hodgeman took off his glasses and put them back on I was dying. Hilarious. The interview was really great too.
