Stewart Rips Rangel, Plays Classic Practical Joke (VIDEO)
After running down a list of recent embarrassments to the state of New York, Jon Stewart turned his attention to Charles Rangel, ripping on the Congressman and having some fun in the process. Stewart took Rangel to task, mocking him for the repeated indiscretions and the irony of his position on Ways and Means Committee.
But the kicker came when Stewart flashed a picture of Rangel passed out on a pool-side chair that "encapsulated the cluelessness of that ethical misjudgment, the arrogance bred by 40 years of Congress, but also added a comic twist." And how could this picture get even more ridiculous? Enter a warm bowl of water and a need for a new pair of shorts.
