Jon dissects Sean Hannity's ridiculous, sycophantic interview with hockey mom Sarah Palin.
Hannity: Is Senator Obama then using what happened on Wall Street this week? Is he using it for political gain? Is there a danger of a presidential candidate is saying to the world that America's situation of economic crisis is the worst that we've seen in decades — which was words that he was using yesterday — is there a danger in terms of the world hearing that?
Stewart: "I mean, Sarah, answer this for me: Shouldn't we be lying to the world? For instance, what if we told the world the stock market was like golf scores, lower numbers are better. Apparently for Sean Hannity, the greatest in an economic free-fall is acknowledging it. It's the Wile E. Coyote theory applied to economics."
The juxtaposition with the late night debt-relief infomercial is priceless.
