Episode Summary

Claire Danes
Tonight, actress Claire Danes promotes her new movie Evening.

Jon begins again with tonight's "You Don't Know Dick" as we learn that Dick Cheney invented his own top secret fication stamp that he stamps documents with. In other Cheney news, Cheney once told Senator Patrick Leahy to go f*ck himself. Well today, Leahy got his revenge and sent a subpoena to the V.P. to obtain info on the administrations wiretap program.

Next, Jon reports on the immigration bill that was resurrected only to be killed once again in a segment called "Mexican Standoff". Resident Expert John Hodgman reports on the debate over this bill, including footage of some media pundits who claim illegal aliens bring in disease and criminals into the U.S.

Finally, the iPhone is coming out this Friday and Senior Technology Correspondent Rob Riggle will do anything to get his hands on one, including kicking over baby strollers.moreless

  • What was with the IPhone segement (or more accurately...commercial)

    First Jon has to go on & on about the phone, but his bit w/ the umbrella+calculator+all that other crap was pretty funny so I didn't mind. But then he introduced a whole segment on the phone. And even said something like " I just doubled Comedy Central's budget". (Was that an admission that it was a paid bit??)

    I have never really liked Rob Riggle and tonight's segment about him being obsessed with the IPhone was not funny and was incredibly annoying. Coming the day after Stephen Colbert would not shut up about the phone - it was even more annoying.

    Please stop putting product placement on my two favorite shows!!!!

    Other than that it was a good episode, especially the "you don't know DICK" segment.

    It does frighten me that Cheney is so secretive and I often only get news like this from Daily Show (despite reading other news sources). Claire Danes interview was ok, nothing earth shattering.moreless

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Jon Stewart: In 2004 on the floor of the U.S. Senate [Cheney] told Senator Leahy to "go f*ck yourself". Why would he say that to Senator Leahy? Because Dick Cheney is a busy man, too busy to f*ck Leahy personally.

  • NOTES (1)


    • Jon Stewart: I am Dorian Gray.

      Jon's joke about being ageless refers to the title character in Oscar Wilde's novel The Picture of Dorian Gray. Dorian has a portrait painted of him and he wishes that he could stay young and handsome forever and that the picture could age instead of him. His wish is granted, but it leads to great suffering for him and many others.
