Episode Summary

Judd Apatow
Tonight, the director and writer of the new movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Judd Apatow.

Jon begins the show tonight with a report on Obama's bitter comments about Pennsylvanians in a segment called "Gaffe-In". Of course, the media waste no time attacking Obama and questioning whether he is an elitist. Next, Hillary goes drinking with the common man and has a few shots of Crown Royal. Jon then talks about why being an elitist isn't a bad thing.

Finally, Jon looks at Bush's speech about the disatrous effects of pulling out of Iraq.moreless

  • Go Jon! You're right! We want the smartest people!

    This is why I love Jon Stewart above all others

    While the media is going around trying to peg Obama as elitest - Jon turns the question around to ask why we want people to pretend their at the lowest common denominator.

    We DON'T want someone we can "have beers" with. Someone average. No one gives a crap if Obama can bowl. If Hilary's "down" enough to chug beers!

    We want the SMARTEST person we can have! Someone WAY above us. As Jon says, we want someone who speaks 16 languages, who could solve the problems in the middle east at a moment's thought. I want someone so smart I don't feel worthy of being in the same room!

    I'd rather give them IQ tests and vote for the top scorer.

    (NOTE: I know IQ tests don't actually measure intelligence.. just saying...)

    While Stephen Colbert is doing nothing but whoring himself out for Doritos and pretending/being a pompous a$$, Jon is telling it like it is!

    Ok, the interview was boring. I dislike Judd Aptow's sophmoric prurient movies, so watching him discuss how long he's known Jon was boring.

    but the rest of the show was fantastic!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Jon Stewart: Everything that he [President Bush] says will happen if we leave already happened by going there.

    • Jon Stewart: (imitating President Bush) This war [Iraq War] is about bragging rights.

    • Jon Stewart: I know 'elite' is a bad word in politics…But the job you're applying for, if you get it and it goes well, they might carve your head into a mountain. If you don't actually think you're better than us, then what the f**k are you doing? In fact, not only do I want an elite president, I want someone who's embarrassingly superior to me, somebody who speaks 16 languages and sleeps two hours a night hanging upside down in a chamber they themselves designed…Isn't it time we tried something just a little bit different?

    • (shows clip of Hillary Clinton drinking beer)
      Jon Stewart: Is she running for President or pledging? Well, not to worry, people, it's not like she got out of control. (shows clip of Hillary Clinton being offered a shot and refusing) No, no, a responsible choice senator. Running for President is like being the designated driver of the country. (shows clip of Hillary Clinton doing a shot) Oh, that's just great. That's just what we need--a president who gives into peer pressure.

    • (In response to Obama's comments about Pennsylvania citizens)
      Jon Stewart: That is outrageous sir! Outrageous! These people do not turn to God and guns and mistrust of foreigners because of a downturn in the economy. Those are the very foundations those towns are built on. How dare you!?!

  • NOTES (1)


    • During the show, Jon Stewart exclaimed, "I said 'Good Day' sir." This is the trademark catchphrase of Warner Brothers' famous rooster character Foghorn. It is also a well known line from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Willy Wonka yells it to Charlie as he kicks him out of the factory.
