Jon Stewart ripped into Fox and their election coverage this Tuesday night and the "avalanche of bulls**t mountain" after President Obama was declared the winner in Ohio. Stewart took great delight in the segment that I know was my favorite from the night, which was watching Karl Rove's head explode as he disputed the Ohio results and Megyn Kelly's trip down the hall for a dose of reality to refute Rove which we covered here.

As Stewart noted, Kelly's remarks to Rove about the "math you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better" would probably make for a better slogan for Fox than the one they're using now. He wrapped things up by mocking O'Reilly and Palin and their attacks on those lazy moochers out there who just want the government to "give them things."

STEWART: What an incredible story to tell yourselves. We would have won if it weren't for the moral failings of the non-real America. [...] Fox lost because last night, minorities, who feel entitled to things, came and took the country away from the self-sufficient, white Medicare retirees and upper-class tax avoidance experts, or as they're also known, your audience.
