UPDATE: Stewart didn't let us down. He spent 7 delicious minutes not only making great sport of WeinerGate but also -- wait for it, wait for it -- giving Bloggers credit for doing the hard reporting on the story. He did mention his friendship with Weiner and even had fun with that stating he didn't believe the scandal because he remembers "more Anthony than Weiner."
Palin stuff that opened the show was tired, typical Palin bashing. But the Weiner stuff was clever. Little Anthony is officially a National Joke.
So ... this is what it's like to enjoy the Daily Show. What an odd feeling.
Sorry, but I don't believe this for a second...
That tweet went out just a few minutes ago and I for one refuse to fall for it. Really? Our New Murrow, America's favorite political satirist is going to make tired old Palin jokes with all this rich material about Representative Anthony Weiner hanging out there? Not only is Mr. Stewart a comedic genius with his finger on the pulse of America's cutting edge, but he must know that he's lucky enough to be America's very first late night comedian to get a crack at this.
And think of all the new Weiner material he has .... especially after his history with Weiner
or due to the "D" after Weiner's name are just a little too cynical for me.
Jon's Tweet is messing with us. Bank on it.
That Jon Stewart. What a kidder.
