    • Jon Stewart (about the audience): They applaud and then all at once, as though signaled, they stop. So weird!

    Notes (1)

    • Moment of Zen: President Bush at an April 30th press conference talking about how great Paul Wolfowitz is and how he should stay as the President of the World Bank.

    Allusions (2)

    • When Jon is talking about Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and the accusations that he mismanaged the 2006 war with Lebanon, the caption says, "Heckuva job, Olmy." This is a reference to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and former FEMA director Michael Brown; despite the inadequate and disorganized rescue efforts, George W. Bush famously said to him, "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job."

    • Guy on World Bank Commercial: Lost another loan to the World Bank! This a parody of the Ditech commercials where a pathetic and unsuccessful loan officer would always say, "I lost another loan to Ditech!"
