Jon Stewart

‘Daily Show’:  Mess O’Poromnia

This week, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney raised eyebrows when he compared his five sons’ work on the Romney-for-Prez campaign to military service on behalf of the country.  Here, Jon Stewart takes a look at the Romneys’ work on “The Five Brothers Bus”—sending “Senior Campaign Embedder” Aasif Mandvi to report from the dangerous front lines ... of Iowa.

Bush on His Administration’s (Lack of) Accountability

Asked for clear examples of his “commitment” to accountability, President Bush first cites “Scooter” Libby as someone who has been held accountable (sure, before he got pardoned) and then flies into a tailspin over the presumptive innocence of Alberto “Al” Gonzales, dropping doozies like this along the way: “I haven’t seen Congress say he’s done anything wrong.”

‘Jihad The Musical’ Hits Edinburgh Stage

You’ve heard the hype, now see the show—or at least its standout number, if you’re not currently in Edinburgh, Scotland.  Here, we present footage of foolhardy star Sorab Wadia as self-styled megalomaniac Hussein Al Mansour, singing “I Wanna Be Like Osama” in “Jihad The Musical,” playing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival until the last week of August.

Laura Bush

Hurricane Ka…Uh…Whatever

Laura Bush misplaces a “t” in this clip that makes you wonder if she gets her news from bubble gum wrappers. Not to beat up on the first lady, but seriously, if you forget what one of the most talked-about events of the last two years is called, don’t just make something up.

‘Daily Show’: Dick and Donald Answer Q’s, Planets Align

Two envoys from the notoriously press-eschewing Bush administration, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, were seen (gasp!) answering questions on television ... on the same day!  “The Daily Show’s” Jon Stewart compares this highly improbable occurrence to “a giant squid having sex with Bigfoot as the ghost of Jim Morrison claps giddily.”  Via Crooks and Liars

Leahy Snaps at White House Stonewaller

Bush lackey Scott Jennings gives Sen. Pat Leahy the broken-record treatment, which has become so familiar. Witness Leahy’s frustration break as Jennings refuses even to describe his duties: “Let’s not be too contemptuous of this committee. ... You work at the White House. You’re paid for by taxpayers. You work for the American people. I’m just asking you what kind of work you do.”

Here’s a snippet that shows what it must be like for your average congressperson heading for work these days:  Watch as North Dakota Rep. Earl Pomeroy is descended upon by two women vigorously demanding that President Bush be impeached, which spurs a clearly irked Pomeroy to fume that, “I can’t stand this president ... [but] people I represent don’t wanna impeach this clown.”
