Jon Stewart mocks election-night meltdown at Fox News

Yesterday, I shared with you THIS FUNNY VIDEO.

Today, I share with you THIS HILARIOUS STUFF (which includes some vulgar language and a don’t-miss-it video at the end of the piece):

Jon Stewart recapped all the big news from last night’s election, but saved his harshest criticisms for Fox News, Karl Rove, and in particular, five fateful minutes of the network in near-pandemonium after Ohio was called for President Obama that Stewart predicted would live on forever.

Stewart joked that Obama’s victory speech appeared to show that he was given “fresh batteries” for his second term, marveling at how all it took to get the president back in his “groove” was the mere thought of never having to run in another election ever again. Stewart brought up victories for gay marriage and marijuana proponents in a number of states, and said the undisputed “best news” of the night was that even though Florida is still too close to call, “the election was decided without them.”

“Florida’s [deleted] is irrelevant!” Stewart happily shouted.

He then turned to Fox News, which was “caught flat-footed” after months of brushing aside the polls and predicting that Mitt Romney would win. And that’s when Stewart got around to the amazing, insane moment of panic on the network that Stewart said, unlike all of humanity, “will… live forever.”

  1. I wonder if he will mock Chris Matthews who proclaimed that he was glad that hurricane Sandy hit the East coast?

    Squirrel.

    Mother Nature > Super PACs and Adelson.

  3. It is the most ironic squirrel I have ever met, given the liberals terror over global warming, their suggestion that Sandy is related to said warming and now their praise of said destructive storm.

    I am glad that you think you have found another squirrel to replace the previously debunked fiscal cliff though. No Applesauce menagerie would be complete without it.

    By the way, Luke, you might want to check this article out.

  4. doc said: “I wonder if he will mock Chris Matthews who proclaimed that he was glad that hurricane Sandy hit the East coast?”

    Chris Mathews apologized on air, for 2 1/2 minutes, for what he called, a stupid mistake. So don’t try to get any mileage out of that.

    I don’t hear you say anything about Donald Trump’s inflammatory comments, when the election was called in Obama’s favor. He hasn’t apologized.

    doc, you throw around the word “terror” a lot. Still sucking up to GWB?

  6. doc: What’s all this about liberals and “THEIR praise of said destructive storm”?

    Who is they? Chris Matthews mispoke, but he’s not a “they.” He’s a “he.” He didn’t speak for all liberals or even most liberals or even a few liberals.

    How would you like it if I characterized some wingnut’s use of the N-word in reference to Obama as representative of conservatives and “their” attitudes about race?

    But I’ll concede one point to you: Conservatives now have greater reason than liberals to hate Hurricane Sandy with more than humanitarian sympathy for its victims. I, too, wish the storm had never happened. But I rather enjoy the effect it had on presidential politics. Sandy wasn’t God’s punishment for America’s libertinism, as some preachers claim. He just wanted Obama to win.

  7. Tex,

    Of course he apologized for it, it made him look like an idiot. I find that people are most likely to reveal their true selves when under duress or fatigue.

  8. Luke,

    GWB?

    Never met him.

    I also wasn’t aware the word was restricted to associations with GWB. But maybe that’s why our current President is so loathe to use the word. Maybe he should just use the word terror and follow it up with “which is all George Bush’s fault”.

    Or is that just assumed?

  9. Oops, sorry Tex.

    About Trump?

    He’s and idiot too. No, not the correct word, he must be somewhat intelligent. How about putz?

    I didn’t see his comments, but I think Trump has alot of things to apologize for. First and foremost his stupid reality TV show.

    doc, you typed “…given the liberals terror over global warming…”, which to me (and I suspect most red-blooded Americans who endured 9/11), is a dishonorable trivialization of actual acts of terror. You remember, don’t you? Acts that killed thousands and changed the course of our nation’s history?

    No only were you wrong – liberals have NOT terrorized anyone by ackowledging the consensus of climate scientists – but you were boorish.

    I politely ask that you think twice before using “terror” so inappropriately. Consider it akin to tossing around the word cancer in a healthcare setting.

    And how does it feel to have Tammy Baldwin representing you in the Senate? So much for the squirrel of Wisconsin turning to the right behind Walker…

    Yet if you embrace objectivity, Tammy may pleasantly surprise you in coming years. I know many cheesehead wingnuts who crossed the aisle and voted for her because they witnessed first-hand her principled leadership in the House. She is a true fighter for Wisconsin manufacturers.

  12. I use the word cancer about every 15 minutes at work.

    Because that’s what it is called.

    (On a side note, in medical school, I was working with a group doing sex ed/ STD/ anti-smoking informational talks at middle schools in Madison and we actually had a mother who requested that we use the words hot dog and garage instead of penis and vagina. Classic!)

    I have no strong feeling for Tammy Baldwin either way. I voted for Tommy Thompson, but I didn’t do it enthusiastically. He actually gave my med school commencement address in 1993 and was embarrassingly terrible. At the time, there was great buzz about his potential as a future presidential candidate. NOT!

    I would be surprised if a US Senator had any significant impact on the economy of the state. Certainly Herb Kohl and Russ Feingold were no great shakes in that regard. It is interesting to have Ron Johnson and Tammy Baldwin as the 2 Senators from Wisconsin though.

    I obviously, personally think that Scott Walker and Republican majorities in the State Legislature and Senate are greater harbingers for success when it comes to the economy in Wisconsin.

  13. The talking heads guarding the inhabitants of Bullsh*t Mountain from rejoining the world of the sane just won’t budge an inch will they? Fox News is a propaganda machine which dumbs down America by the day through disinformation and their slanted agendas. See their anchors spewing forth feces from their mouths in my visual homage to the network on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/10/the-fox-news-scylla-guardian-of-bullsht.html

  14. Nice.
