We all knew this was coming. The Daily Show's Jon Stewart does his best to unpack Mitt Romney's ridiculous assertions about that lazy, mooching 47 percent that just wants to live off of the government dole. And in the process we get treated to a Mr. Smithers analogy and Stewart pointing out that apparently Mittens' own parents would not be supporters of his, since they were on welfare.

And last but not least Stewart compared Romney's disastrous press conference the previous night to the captain of a cruise ship trying to convince the everyone to stay calm while blowing up his life jacket, just before hitting an iceberg.

If the Romney campaign thinks these leaked tapes from Mother Jones are going away any time soon, I think they're sadly mistaken.
