Jon Stewart Mocks Mitt Romney's Pandering To Southerners And Foxworthy Endorsement

Jon Stewart took Mitt Romney to task for his embarrassing pandering to Southerners this week -- Jon Stewart Suffers Through Romney’s Southern Pandering:

Jon Stewart on Monday suffered through Mitt Romeny’s Southern pandering: from the awkward y’alls to grits and biscuits.

“You’re a guy who looks like you just stepped off of the Monopoly board,” Stewart said, “you really think you’re gonna appeal to Southerners by finding reference with them on the issues that matter most to them: their accent and choosing the right breakfast starch?”

Romney even asked Randy Owen, singer of the popular country band Alabama, to sing a few bars of “Sweet Home Alabama” … a Lynyrd Skynyrd song.

Stewart wrapped things up with making fun of Romney's recent endorsement by comedian Jeff Foxworthy and his own edition of "you might be a Romney."
