A Daily Show: February 7, 2008 - VIDEO
Senior Analyst Jason Jones described the ways of douchebaggery and how the very specific douchebag demographic can influence the election. Mitt Romney was a pretty big douchebag, but at least he was a douchebag that was well-aware of how out-of-touch he was with his douchebag brethren. Honestly, I just wanted to see how many times I could say "douchebag".
"Mass. Hysteria": This was a classic segment from Daily Show alumn Ed Helms. Unfortunately, this didn't have a catchy name like Stephen Colbert's "Klassic Kolbert", but it was still wonderful to revisit this piece about Massachusetts' gay marriage laws. It should also be noted that the Homometer will never, ever get old, because any time there is a robotic voice with a slight lisp being sassy, I'm cool with it.
The night's guest was Laton McCartney, author of The Teapot Dome Scandal: How Big Oil Bought the Harding White House and Tried to Steal the Country. The discussion covered the oh-so exciting topic of old-time political corruption.
Moment of Zen: Nothing says "Mr. President" like Mitt Romney with a surfboard. Cowabunga, dude.
Monday: I'm going to see The Colbert Report on Monday! It's super-exciting.
