Jon Stewart positively nails the point that Cesca and I have been discussing on the podcast for a couple of weeks now: swaggering, shit-kicking pretend tough-guy action figure Rick Perry is almost certain to win the Republican nomination -- precisely because he's a swaggering, shit-kicking pretend tough-guy action figure.
Plus Stewart manages a nice parting shot at the clownish buffoonery of Al Sharpton, just as a little bonus.
By the way, if you're interested, a second clip from last night's Daily Show is posted over at HuffPo -- this one has Stewart subtly mocking NBC/Telemundo's Jose Diaz-Balart. Or as I like to call him, the Least Interesting Man in the World.
