Jon Stewart, suffering from significant disappointment that Sarah Palin resigned during his week off, had correspondent Samantha Bee attempt to explain it all to him. Because, while Stewart understands "Harvard basketball," Bee said he doesn't know "maverick basketball."

Bee defended Palin, asking Stewart to leave her family alone, revising the definition of resignation to accommodate world views other than the myopic ones of liberal East Coast dictionary writers, explaining the rules of maverick basketball and breaking the latest Palin resignation news. I mean, her family understands that "you can't suckle from the teat of a shooting star."
