Jon Stewart discussed Monday evening the job that no one currently desires to have in the Republican Party: Mitt Romney’s vice presidential running mate.

The Comedy Central host played a montage of different figures in the party, from Tim Pawlenty to Sarah Palin, who have immediately declined being the former Massachusetts governor’s running mate. Even the suppose frontrunners for the spot, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) publicly recommended someone else instead.

“Why does being Romney’s vice president now seem like a dare no one wants to take?” Stewart asked. “‘Eat a plate of my own shit. No no no, you eat it.’”
