Jon Stewart's Sexual Bush-Merkel Joke Not So Outlandish Anymore...

On last night’s “Daily Show,” Jon Stewart joked that we were lucky Bush’s “open mike” didn’t pick him up “pointing out some Merkel camel toe,” a lewd sexual reference to German Chancellor Angela Merkel. However, in light of Bush’s just publicized unsolicited massage of Merkel, Stewart is looking prophetic all of a sudden.

(Seriously, what are the odds? Jon Stewart was joking about worst-case scenario–of Bush making an innappropriate sexual gesture towards Merkel when he thought no one was looking–and then it actually came true the very next day!)
