'The Daily Show'Last week, an open mic caught Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer explaining that he had been instructed by his caucus to always use the word "extreme" when referring to Republicans.

On 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), John Stewart played a clip of Schumer's live-mic gaffe, and then followed it up with a clip of the senator actually using the word "extreme" when talking about the GOP in a televised speech.

Stewart was not impressed with either the Democrats' (meant-to-be) secret strategy, or how Schumer applied it. "Democrats are just weak," Stewart argued, after watching the clips, and looking exasperated.

"I swear to God," he continued. "Sometimes I think Democrats couldn't get laid if they lived next door to a hospice facility whose patients' only hope, according to their doctors, would be the laying of Democrats."

Now that's one "extreme" analogy.
