Jon Stewart Mocks Democrats For Not Doing Better Against The Likes Of Mitch McConnell And Scott Brown

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart mocked Democrats for running away from President Obama like he was a character in a horror movie and for not doing better against really awful candidates like Mitch McConnell and Scott Brown.

After first taking a few whacks at some of our Democratic candidates for the Senate running away from President Obama "like he was one of the bad guys in those Chainsaw Massacre movies" and the ridiculous game many of them have been playing where they're trying to distance themselves from the head of their own party, The Daily Show's Jon Stewart took a few whacks at the Mitch McConnell and Scott Brown campaigns.

Jon Stewart mocks Mitch McConnell: He still has to buy friends and likeability:

Instead of hiding from President Barack Obama, Jon Stewart said on Tuesday night’s Daily Show, Democrats need to ask themselves why they’re mired in tight election races with the likes of Scott Brown and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

Stewart pointed out that McConnell’s campaign had to put out an open call for people willing to be bussed to campaign stops and “help contribute to an enthusiastic atmosphere.” Volunteers reportedly got a free hotel stay and food out of the deal.

“This guy’s been in the Senate for 30 years,” Stewart said. “He’s about to be the most powerful Republican in the Senate. He’s still gotta buy friends and manipulate his likeability.”

The sight of McConnell hanging around a bunch of bloodhounds in a new campaign ad, however, prompted Stewart to unleash his impersonation of the senator.

“It turns out, even through linen pants, a bloodhound’s tongue feels pretty good on the testicles,” Stewart-as-McConnell observed.

Meanwhile, Stewart couldn’t believe that Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) was in a statistical tie with Brown, even after Brown — who only moved to New Hampshire two years ago — told the Associated Press, “Do I have the best credentials? Probably not. ‘Cause, you know, whatever. But I have long and strong ties to this state.”
