"The Daily Show" and "Colbert Report" aired special Democratic Convention coverage Friday night and absolutely laced into McCain's ridiculous choice for VP, Sarah Palin. As a bonus, Jon rips into FOX's Steve Doocy for seriously arguing that Alaska's proximity to Russia gives Palin meaningful foreign policy experience.
Stewart: "There was also some breaking news out of Ohio today when Republican Presidential candidate John McCain introduced the world to his third wife. Actually, no, wait, that's his running mate Sarah Palin, freshman governor of Alaska, star and producer of Emmy-winning '30 Rock.' I apologize...the star of the Emmy-winning 'Will and Grace.' No, no, I'm sorry...she's actually the mild-mannered yet troubled librarian from every Cinemax movie.
Colbert: "We're still waiting with bated breath for the big news: who will John McCain pick as his running mate. The Republican convention starts Monday and here he is at a rally just hanging out with some female supporter who I assume won some radio call-in contest. Is it Romney? Is it Pawlenty? Wait...she is?! Are you serious?! Who the f*ck is Sarah Palin? What? The sexy librarian?!"
