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.

I can't remember that last time I felt more dismayed than when the audience reacted to Perry's execution record. I had the exact same feeling when Bush won the "who would you most want to have a beer with" moment, knowing the discussion of the Presidency had devolved to the level of "Did you see what happened on 'Sex in the city?" levels.

Yes. But like most Americans, I just don't care about it.
