Jon Stewart Does Kegstands On The Senate. Eviscerates And Defenestrates Them Also Too
It's midterms time, and Jon Stewart has his eye on the most important issues in the 2014 Senate elections: In Kentucky, Alison Lundergan Grimes showed Mitch McConnell the proper way to hold a gun, giving Stewart an excuse to do his McConnell as Cecil Turtle bit, ah-yup, so just go ahead and watch already. But there's also the great debate over whether Alaska Sen. Mark Begich really rides a snow machine, and, more recently, the brouhaha (from a Sanskrit word meaning "Jesus, people thinkthis is a big deal?) over Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu helping a college man from LSU do a kegstand (went in dumb -- come out dumb too). "Who wants to do lines off my ass? Come on, everybody! Let’s party -- the survival of Obamacare depends on it!”
Stewart also wonders what space aliens would make of our political controversies:
They would think the Senate was an adult summer camp competition or some six-year pass to Dave & Buster’s: “We got shootin’! Snow machines! Friday night’s keg night! Come on down to The Senate!”
Which sets up a Samantha Bee segment, with Bee as "Zorban 37," who enlightens us as to how political discourse works on her planet. Honestly, we think the writers may have just been stuck for a way to end the sketch, but here's the vid anyway, because you're hot for her:
You're welcome, America.
