Tonight's Tribute of Zen was a series of clips dedicated to Scott McClellan, former White House Press Secretary.
Jon Stewart: Do you feel that this move is part of a real shakeup that's going on at the White House.
Ed Helms: Yes, Jon. They read the poll numbers; they know most Americans now think their policies are failing, so they've responded (pause) by changing the person who tells us about those failures. It's quite a bold move.
Jon Stewart: Well, it's, it's hardly a housecleaning.
Ed Helms: Well, every housecleaning begins by changing the doormat.
Jon Stewart: This is a huge story, Ed. You've been down, uh, at the White House all day; in your estimation, do you believe McClellan quit or was he forced out?
Ed Helms: Hmmmm, first of all, Jon, I wouldn't be so sure he's really stepping down.
Jon Stewart: Now, why not?
Ed Helms: Because the announcement was made by White House Press Secretary, Scott McClellan, and between you and me, that guy ain't too un-too trustworthy.
Jon Stewart: Whoever replaces McClellan CNN's John Roberts says that person will have a difficult task ahead of him.
John Roberts (via video tape): If that's where the job listing were to be posted, on Monster, they would probably say, you know, be willing to take it full in the face every day.
Jon Stewart: There is no word yet on who will fill McClellan's shoes, although one rumored candidate is Tony Snow, correspondant of FOX News. Uhh, in other words, the White House is considering paying a FOX News reporter to tell the public what it would like them to hear. I hope he's up to the job.
Jon Stewart: McClellan has taken much criticism over the years for his evasiveness, his sweaty disingenious... lying, but in all fairness, he's had a pretty rough ride: Abu Gahrib, uh the scandal there, Hurricane Katrina, and perhaps most damaging, his go-to reporter turned out to be a male prostitute.
Jon Stewart (about Scott McClellan's resignation): Why now?
Scott McClellan (via video tape): The White House is going through a period of transition. Change can be helpful, and this is a good time and a good position to help bring about change; and I'm ready to move on.
Jon Stewart: Didn't it look like (President) Bush was still working his mouth?
Jon Stewart: You know me, I don't watch the show, I don't care for it, but TONIGHT, even I'm watchin'.
