Jon Stewart apologized last night for having said South Carolina Mark Sanford was on the Appalachian Trail having sex with a coyote when in fact he was in Argentina having sex with a married woman.

Sanford held a press conference yesterday after being missing for seven days. He apologized to his wife and four sons for the betrayal and resigned as head of the Republican Governors Association. Stewart, who had hunkered down for an exciting announcement with popcorn and movie-sized soda, was disappointed saying:

"Oh, marital infidelity, you're just another run of the mill human being whose simple moralizing about the sanctity of marriage is only marred by the complexities of their own life. Well just another politician with a conservative mind and a liberal penis."

Stewart was, of course, referencing Sanford's views on marriage which he thought should only be between a man and a woman.

Stewart then closed his show with yet another shot at Joe Scarborough, a self-proclaimed good friend of the governor's, making a terrible prediction about how this would all play out:
