AIRED:
Tonight, former political columnist for The New York Times and author of Safire's Political Dictionary, William Safire. Jon begins tonight with a segment called "Indecision 2008: Monsters of Nostalgia Tour" as John McCain attempts to reintroduce himself to the public through the media blitz covering the Dems race. Jon hits the hot spots on McCain's tour of his life by first talking with Senior Biographical Commentator Jason Jones reporting live from Annapolis where McCain was a cadet in 1954. Next, Senior Personal History Correspondent Samantha Bee reports from Gettysburg where McCain gave some water to Abraham Lincoln. Finally, Senior Life-Telling Man Rob Riggle reports from a cave in France where our human ancestors, including McCain, first drew on a cave. Jon then looks at the House of Representatives who spent a day grilling some oil executives about record gas prices. Senior Petrol Correspondent John Oliver reports from a gas station about these high prices.moreless

  • Jon Stewart totally owned John Mccain! Old man wanting to get you on a bus to tell you his stories? Haha! Jon Stewart, you're great.

    Since I'm not really in to politics, but I still watch the Daily Show and the Stephen Colbert Report, I did get some jokes or a lot of jokes and I found this to be very funny. I loved the jokes of John Mccain. Jon Stewart spent many minutes on making fun of John Mccain's age. It's cruel but funny! Like Rob Riggle says, "He's eerily old."



    Jon Stewart also talks about raising tax prices. He states that they could rise up to "a million per gallon". Not his exact words. A wise man indeed.



    A guest on the show, William Safire was also there but I had no clue who the hell he is except an author for some dictionary. That's the only part of the show I think I hate.



    I thought this show was funny, except when William Safire is interviewed.moreless
