GayObama on 'The Daily Show'On 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central) Jon Stewart was discussing Barack Obama's sudden decision to abandon legal support for the Defense of Marriage Act (which defines marriage only as a union between a man and a woman) when he made an announcement about a new Twitter account he had set up.

"What makes this turnaround especially surprising is that the president's stand against gay marriage has long frustrated gay Obama followers," Stewart said. "By which I mean gay Democrats, not followers of 'GayObama,' my parody Twitter feed, of which there are zero followers -- although I'm guessing after tonight I will have more than zero followers."

As Stewart explained 'GayObama,' he had a screen shot of it in the background, and the audience could see a tweet reading "I'm half-black, half-white and all SAMANTHA!"

It turns out GayObama is a real Twitter feed that the public can check out. As Stewart predicted, it's already picked up thousands of followers since he introduced it on-air.
