Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart Thursday examined former House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s announcement on Twitter that he was running for the Republican nomination for president.

“This whole Twitter, YouTube thing is not going to work because you’re not cool,” Stewart said. “You’re uncool.”

“Gingrich announcing on YouTube instead of on television or a newspaper, it’s as though Newt has abandoned old media while it was sick or possibly dying to take up with newer, younger, more fuckable media,” he added.
