Jon Stewart and Senior Peacetime Correspondent John Oliver look at the absurdity of the coverage of Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize win, and can only blame it on the politics of the "liberal elite" in charge of the award.

OLIVER: No doubt the Nobel Committee is suffering from Bush Derangement Syndrome, using this award as a personal bitch slap after the Commander in Chief. They've done it before. Remember Mother Teresa? Yowza!

STEWART: Mother Teresa's Peace Prize, that was controversial?

OLIVER: It was a slap in the face to Mother Sophia. She worked her whole life with tuberculosis sufferers in Bombay. But you know the liberal elites. If it ain't leprosy, they ain't interested. But Mother Teresa, she milked those lepers for all they were worth. And the media just lapped it up.

STEWART: Alright John...that's just....please, let's just move on and...

OLIVER: Mother Teresa....F@#K her!
