Jon Stewart covered Rahm Emanuel's residency woes on "The Daily Show" Tuesday night, and came to the conclusion that the only thing scarier than Rahm Emanuel angry "is Rahm Emanuel smiling through his anger."

The segment covers the hilarity that was Emanuel's residency hearing with the Chicago Board of Elections (Technicolor dreamcoat, anyone?), the breathless media coverage of the ballot debacle and the general mess that is Illinois politics.

Chicago Bureau Chief (for the night) John Oliver dismissed any notion of corruption among Chicago politicians, calling them "sticklers" and "paragons of virtue."

Ok, enough spoilers. Watch it. It's really funny:
