Check out the best of this week’s Truthdig-flavored videos. In this installment: Joe Scarborough asks “Is Bush an ?idiot??? Jon Stewart mocks RNC Chair Ken Mehlman’s new “Adapt and Win” talking points; Va. Sen. George Allen steps in a heaping pile of “macaca,” and more….
Jon Stewart asked “Daily Show” correspondent Rob Corddry if Virginia Sen. George Allen had damaged his image by using a racial slur to describe a young campaign worker.
