Jon Stewart poked fun at one of his favorite targets on “The Daily Show” on Wednesday night. Stewart ripped into Sarah Palin for saying that she couldn’t think of any prominent Republicans who talk the way liberals do.

“Does the lake behind you have reflective properties?” Stewart said. “If so, you may find the answer to your riddle.”

He then proceeded to show a video of Palin slinging harsh words: accusing Obama of pallin’ around with terrorists, calling Nancy Pelosi a dingbat and questioning the president’s “balls” (so to speak). Turns out, Stewart had quite a bit of material to work with.

He concluded: “So you don’t know of any prominent Republicans who spew divisive vitriol? There can only be two explanations for that. One: Not even Sarah Palin believes she is a prominent Republican anymore. Or two: Sarah Palin can no longer hear herself speak.”

Let’s go with the former.
