Episode Summary

Angelina Jolie
Tonight, actress Angelina Jolie promotes her new movie A Mighty Heart.

Jon begins the show tonight by showing us the duplicity of White House Press Secretary Tony Snow. Two months ago, Snow said the 8 fired U.S. attorneys were fired for performance reasons. Yesterday, Snow said he never said that.

"Clusterf@#k to the White House" continues with Jon reporting on Giuliani's 12 easily mockable commitments, Romney's flip floppery on abortion, & McCain's drunken bout with a burger. Jon then highlights the candidates use of the internet in their campaigns such as: buying Rudy Giuliani gear, dinner with Barack, Hillary Clinton's theme song videos, & Gravel's creepy "Rock" video.

Finally, Jon reports on a bit of controversy over at the Weather Channel who's chief climatologist said that no meteorologist should get a seal of approval by the American Meteorological Society if they do not speak about global warming. Senator James Inhoffe (R -Oklahoma) was quite mad saying that the Weather Channel uses fear to increase ratings. Jon shows us a local weather promo ad from Oklahoma that will really scare you into watching the weather report.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Jon Stewart: There is such a thing as getting too close to a candidate, for instance, Democrat Mike Gravel's video "Rock" starts with him staring into the camera and continuing to stare for a full minute before throwing a rock into a pond and walking away real slow. The message, not so much vote for Gravel as 7 days after after you see this video your going to die.

      • Barack Obama (clip): Will fly you in, I'll pay for dinner...I think it will be a lot of fun and I hope that you want to be apart of that... there are no strings attached.
        Jon Stewart: We'll get some blow, we'll get some hookers, we'll go crazy, with good ideas for America.

      • Jon Stewart: Rudy Giuliani always keeps his promises, unless he makes them to you as you're marrying him.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Jon Stewart's comment about people dying seven days after seeing Gravel's video was a reference to the 2002 horror movie The Ring, in which Naomi Watts tries to solve the mystery of a videotape that kills people seven days after they watch it.

      • Jon Stewart's campaign song "Let's Get Hillary" is a parody of Olivia Newton-John's song "Physical."
