The Daily Show: August 16, 2007
"Clusterfuck to the White House": Hillary Clinton continues to push her campaign along, but not without a bit of document-related controversy. What else is new? I wish "real" news shows would take advantage of video archives and do fun montages of hypocrisy the way Daily Show does. Also, the Photoshopped picture of Bill Clinton on FDR's body made me laugh even louder than when I saw the Oliver picture. After the laughter died, I proceed to blink repeatedly and try not to collapse. Apparently it's still really easy to enjoy a show when one is on the verge of immediately falling asleep.
The night's guest was John McCain, presidential candidate and author of Hard Call: Great Decisions and the Extraordinary People Who Made Them. When will politicians realize that Daily Show is like a kiss of death to campaigns? Colbert Report is the one that gives the positive bump! It's just a fact. Ahem... Anyway, the interview was pretty good. McCain did his best to crack jokes and play along with Jon, but all that did was make me flashback to his Saturday Night Live hosting stint and how totally weird that was.
Jon/Stephen: YouTube practice! You know, I think the folks that want to depose Jon and Stephen really just want to meet them. Moment of Zen: Let's learn about turd blossoms on The Situation Room!
