The Daily Show Tackles The GOP's Inept Wooing of 'The Lady Vote'

Jon Stewart Says He Almost Quit the Daily Show Because 'These People…

Ugh, it's like one of those nauseating stories you hear where someone was supposed to go on vacation with their friends and then they got mono at the last minute and had to stay home and then the plane crashed—except in this case the person with mono is the American public and the ill-fated flight is Jon Stewart » 12/11/12 8:00pm 12/11/12 8:00pm
