Jon Stewart returned last night after a week off, annoyed that the "news fairy" screwed him. There was no Palin resignation, no Larry Craig scandal, only Tareq and Michaele Salahi, the reality star wannabes who crashed the White House state dinner and posted the evidence on Facebook.
Of course, Stewart worked with what he got and went on to joyously mock not only the party crashers but the media's tireless coverage of them. Dubbing the aspiring reality show stars the "The Real Asswipes of Washington D.C.," Stewart enlisted the help of Jason Jones, Aasif Mandvi, and even Jim Gaffigan to decimate all involved. The latter isn't a correspondent on the "Daily Show," but a crasher who posed as Edward R. Brokaw-Amanpour to snap a few photos of himself on the set and post them to facebook.
