I know it's something that can generally be said over and over again, but this could easily be one of the best bits Jon Stewart and the Daily Show writers have ever put together. Stewart's dazzling takedown of Fox News's RNC-recommended talking points for dealing with the improving national outlook -- an unfortunate state of affairs for a network that wants desperately to see President Obama sent packing in November and will stop at nothing to facilitate that end -- is a sight to behold.
Seriously, nobody exposes the comical hypocrisy and general shenanigans of the right more incisively than Stewart. He does it so well that I think he's been instrumental in helping to drive the national conversation and actually turn a lot of independents against the current Republican mindset.
