After Newt Gingrich was defeated by Mitt Romney in the Florida GOP primary with over 14% of the vote, just about all the late night comedy hosts are using the former Speaker of the House's flailing campaign as a target.

And rightly so, as Jon Stewart pointed out at the top of Wednesday night's "Daily Show," Gingrich has been saying some pretty funny things in his post-primary concession speeches -- or what should be concession speeches but sound more like the plans of a President-elect.

"Newt Gingrich appears to have confused the Florida Republican primary with the general election -- and getting your ass kicked with winning," Stewart joked.

Watch the full segment above and hear why Stewart thinks Gingrich's campaign is becoming more and more like the origin story of a super-villain. Not to mention, we're pretty sure he just proposed to America.
