"Oh my God, they're fighting over issues," Jon Stewart said on "A Daily Show" last night, referring to Monday's Democratic debate in South Carolina. He joked that CNN, having exhausted ideas for how to frame the debate, must have realized, "The one thing we never thought to try turns out to be the one thing that worked!"

CNN did have one trick up its sleeve, though, in what Stewart called "the set switcheroo" — switching from podiums to chairs midway through (which, of course, allowed Rush Limbaugh to remark that Hillary was "the only [candidate] sitting there who could not cross her legs"). Watch, and wait for the biggest surprise of the evening: Dave Chappelle in the house!
