      • The caption, "C*A*S*H," written in khaki-green letters, is a reference to M*A*S*H, a TV show about a US Army medical unit serving in the Korean War. It aired from 1972-1983.

      • Jon Stewart: (about Barack Obama's health) What is he, Achilles? He's got a little problem with his heel, that's all we could find.

        In Greek mythology, Achilles was a hero of the Trojan War. His mother tried to make him immortal by dipping him in the river Styx, but his heel didn't get wet, so it was his only unprotected part. He died when he was shot in the heel with an arrow. This is also where the expression "Achilles heel" comes from.
