Stewart compares Democrats to “a Nigerian prince selling a Groupon deal for boner pills.”
The Democratic Party may have already raised almost $600 million this election cycle, but its various committees are showing no signs of letting up. This is particularly ironic given how many prominent Democrats regularly inveigh against the influence of money in politics. On last night’s episode of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart skewered the Democrats for exactly this feat of cognitive dissonance.
“The Democrats are outraged,” Stewart said, “and their outrage is brought to you by… money.”
Stewart particularly enjoyed discussing President Barack Obama’s recent fundraiser at the Greenwich, Conn., home of one Richard Richman—”literally a man named Richy Rich.”
This focus on fundraisers then segued into the Democrats’ famously hyperbolic emails, which Stewart said had “a frequency and desperation matched only by a Nigerian prince selling a Groupon deal for boner pills.”
He showed actual subject lines like “We Keep Emailing” and—later that same day—”FW: We Keep Emailing,” plus “We’ve Got Nothing Left” and the apocalyptic “All Hope Is Lost.”
“These are real emails,” Stewart again told his audience.
Someone get this man a Gmail filter—at least until November.
