While it was tempting to just discuss the fact that Roland Martin inexplicably wore an ascot on national television, Jon Stewart had his hands full during last night's opening segment. Moronic "wannabombers," Greece's economic downfall, George Reker's rentboy romp, and BP's attempt to cap the oil spill were all covered and mocked mercilessly - and hilariously.
Too much to cover here, but highlights included a demonstration of BP's containment dome that involved Mentos, Diet Coke, and a fishing pole. As an added bonus, if you pay close attention to the "Daily Show" switchboard bit at the end, you'll hear an operator say, "There's no Jon Daily that works here." Gold.
