So Jon Stewart was on Oprah yesterday and … Oh, I’m sorry, could you all give me a minute? My brain just exploded and it seems to have gotten everywhere. Let me just … Okay, we’re good. Anyway, Jon Stewart was on Oprah to talk about his new book, when he revealed that he will never run for President. Ever. Awwww, now what am I going to do with all these Stewart/Colbert ’12 bumper stickers?
“I believe Oprah Winfrey just said out loud ‘this is one of my ‘favorite thiiiiiiings!’” Stewart mocked. “Eat that Franzen!” But Stewart really is serious about promoting his new book – He also brought a clip showing his surprise lecture at an NYU media class, in which he gave every person a copy. Later, Oprah moved on to the big stuff, asking Stewart if he’d ever run for public office, which he adamantly denied. “I make jokes,” Stewart said. “I don’t solve problems.” SOURCE
On the plus side, this means that we won’t have to worry about The Daily Show going off the air anytime soon. On the downside, if yesterday’s failed repeal of DADT is any indication, we will have to suffer through an endless amount of political hackjobs who couldn’t so much as take a shit without filing a motion for it.
