John McCain is trailing in the polls and he needs a jump start badly. So when the campaign announced (and the media lapped up) a much-ballyhooed "comeback" story line, Jon Stewart was surprised to see that the "comeback" speech was identical to his convention speech from a month ago.

"Senator McCain has tried a variety of techniques to get the Straight Talk Express back on the highway to victory, with enough electoral fuel in its, umm, ....right now he's losing. Fear card hasn't worked, POW card, maverick card, crazy base lady/Vice President card... not a good hand, but this weekend, an idea...."

"His supporters are gonna be pissed when they find out he recycles."

Looks like McCain stole a speech from Bush that he then stole from himself. How mavericky!
