The apparent dissatisfaction of the Republican base with the candidates for their presidential nomination proved great fodder for Jon Stewart, in this bit from a segment called "The Great Right Hope." Stewart started with Rick Santorum‘s absurd response to the gay soldier in a question asking about Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Hearing Santorum's call to reinstate DADT, Stewart just shook his head and replied “what planet do you f*cking live on?” Then there was the biting take down of Rick Perry's recent follies but Stewart really aced it with this zinger:
“It’s like the Republican primary is a season of American Idol in reverse, where every week you just add some other idiot," and then riffing on some NJ Governor Chris Christie stuff that was funny.
I'm don't totally agree with Stewart's pointed conclusion though. The present GOP candidates really do have major suckitude, Jon.
