The Daily Show: May 15, 2008 - VIDEOS

Denis and JonSo, John Edwards finally made his endorsement announcement and it looks like he is a Barack Obama type of guy. In other news, I have, once again, managed to out-geek myself. As soon as Jon made that joke about Wolverine, I groaned and thought to myself, "Oh, come on. Daily Show, you've totally lost cool points. Wolverine's skeleton is definitely adamantium." And then that geeky guy came out and corrected Jon. And then I lost cool points. And then I lost extra cool points for using "cool points."

"Golf War": President Bush hasn't been able to play golf in many years because he doesn't want to depress mothers of fallen soldiers. Umm, Okay. This is a good time to note that the footage of President Bush dancing will never, ever, ever get old, especially when it's placed in the context of a montage like that. It's almost as bad as MC Karl Rove.

Senior White House Correspondent Jason Jones gave Danny Zuko a run for his money by being the cool greaser he is. If he's learned anything from rebel President Bush, it's that the bad boys have to do the opposite of what everybody wants, otherwise they'll die inside.

"The Change You Deserve": In a desperate attempt to undergo a brand makeover, the Republicans have adopted a new slogan: "The change you deserve." Jon beautifully summed up the irony of this slogan with "Are you unhappy with your Buick? May I suggest... your Buick?" As it turns out, the slogan has already been used by an antidepressant called Effexor. Whoops. The Republican National Committee Zoloft fellow was both adorable and hilarious. Ohh, Zoloft thingy, how I love thee.

The night's guest was Denis Leary, promoting both HBO's Recount and the Rescue Me DVD, which has the scariest cover ever. The boys made a few attempts to stay on-topic, but most of the segment consisted of the two of them goofing around and joking with the audience. Every time Denis Leary is on the show, it's evident to everyone that he and Jon are old, old friends. The impressions-swapping was hysterical, as were the little anecdotes about the old days. However, that final manly-affectionate grab looked painful. That's why girls do the two-cheek kiss.

Moment of Zen: A Dr. Evil impression, President Bush? Seriously? At least he didn't do the voice.

If you really wanted to out-geek yourself, you would've gone with a no prize instead of cool points. But I think that was just me out-geeking you.

This was the best interview segment Jon and Dennis have had so far. I was on the floor laughing! Not rolling though, that would be silly.

Yeah, I guess Denis & Jon go way back on the east coast comedy circuit.
