The Daily Show featured a “ceremonial changing of the party designation” to celebrate Sen. Arlen Specter’s defection to the Democratic Party. Jon Stewart questioned Specter’s principles in making the party switch.

“Senator, people are saying you made the switch just to win reelection. That can’t be true, right?” The Daily Show host asked. Stewart concluded that Specter was adhering to the “I would like to remain Senator principle.”
