If you haven’t seen “The Daily Show” this week, check out the opening segments of Monday’s and Tuesday’s episodes.
Jon Stewart completely loses it Monday when Newt “the serial adulterer” Gingrich got a standing ovation for calling the media despicable in the South Carolina debate because CNN’s moderator opened with a question on Newt cheating on his multiple-sclerosis afflicted second wife, the woman with whom he cheated on his cancer stricken first wife.
Then the next day, he goes nuclear when Mitt “I’m unemployed just like you” Romney releases tax returns that show the former GOP frontrunner makes about $57,000 a day, without working, and has a tax rate less than a person who makes $57,000 a year. The news I picked up from that segment was that Romney’s Bain Capital lobbied heavily to get the lower tax rate for the rich through Congress.
It’s sad that a comedy show is doing a better job informing people than television news does.
