Episode Summary

John Bowe
Tonight, journalist and author of Nobodies: Modern American Slave Labor and the Dark Side of the New Global Economy, John Bowe. Jon begins tonight's show with Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad visit to New York City in a segment called "Ahmadine Minute". His visit sparked some controversy when Ahmadinejad wanted to visit the 9/11 site and when Columbia University invited him to speak. "Clusterf@#k to the White House" continues as the Democrats debate in front of the AARP in a segment called "The World According to AARP". One of the highlights of the debate was the fly circling from one candidates head to the next. The Republicans chose to speak in front of one of their key base groups, the NRA. Some of the highlights, Giuliani's anti-gun stance has changed because of, you guessed it, 9/11. As Jon notes, Giuliani has a problem always talking about 9/11. This is tragically due to Guiliani's medical condition, 9/11 Tourette's. Finally, Senior Historical Perspectivist Buck Henry drops by to talk with Jon about how choosing presidential candidates through the primary process has changed over the years and how come Iowa and New Hampshire are so important as early primary state's in a segment called "The Henry Stops Here".moreless

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Jon Stewart: With the streets here gridlocked by security, how would Ahmadinejad have the time to make all these commitments? Simple, he gets to drive in the Holocaust Deniers Lane. One thing you can't deny, is the time you'll save.

      • Jon Stewart: The fly is a senior political reporter for Turd Fancy magazine. [applause] Our audience, huge Turd Fancy readers. They want to know what the poop is.

      • Mike Huckabee: (clip) I'm pretty sure there will be duck hunting in heaven, and I can't wait.
        Jon Stewart: Governor Huckabee, are you saying our heaven is duck hell? Is there any place a duck can go to not get shot?

      • Jon Stewart: (about Mahmoud Ahmadinejad) Why would he deliberately wear a Red Sox hat in New York City? I'm telling you, the man is a provocateur.

      • Jon Stewart: We're gonna be discussing slavery tonight. In the United States. This is one show you're gonna want to have your man servant Tivo.
