Jon Stewart channels Vice President Cheney in advising embattled Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

"It was clear that before Alberto Gonzales would face his Senate inquisitors, he was gonna have to buckle down," says Stewart on The Daily Show. "And so he retired to his Department of Justice chambers for several weeks, up to 5 hours a day studying documents, boning up on how humans express sincerity facially."

Video clips of fictional boxer Rocky Balboa in intense training played in the background as Stewart continued to describe Gonzales' preparations for his testimony: "All the time, Cheney following him on a bicycle, shouting, 'You gotta piss lightning and crap thunder, Alberto!'"
