On his show Wednesday night, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart reviewed the Republican primaries in Michigan and Arizona.
Stewart first lampooned the various new networks, which were forced to kill time on air while they waited for the Michigan primary votes to be counted.
“Eventually, the winner did emerge and it was Willard Mittinghouse Romney,” he noted. “A real Cinderella story of a hundred millionaire coming out of everywhere to barely squeak past a crazy person in his own home state.”
Stewart then turned to Romney’s main rival in Michigan, Rick Santorum.
“Of course Rick Santorum’s party after losing was a bit subdued,” Stewart said. “He has earned, though, through the recent primary results a strong measure of our respect and admiration, forged in the heat of a difficult campaign. It allows Rick Santorum to rise above the callow barbs that had once stemmed from a childish web meme associating his good name with what could only be described as frothy ass juice. Tonight — and that will not come back — tonight, sir, is your night of triumph.”
He then played a clip of Santorum saying: “To the people of Michigan, you know we came into the back yard of one of my opponents.”
“Tonight Mitt Romney may have come out on top of us, but we will stay in and not heed the calls to pull out,” Stewart said, mocking Santorum for inadvertently using sexually suggestive language. “Fueled by your spunk, its on to Super Tuesday where we will toss that man’s salad from Iowa to Tennessee.”
