It's always sad when a news cycle is allowed to roll through without taking its licks from "The Daily Show" and "The Colbert Report." There are so many things ripe for mocking that sneak by during weeks, like this one, when the shows are on break.
So in the interest of public service, we thought we'd open up a discussion about what stories are happening right now that Stewart and Colbert simply must tackle when they come back. Do they need to weigh in on Ron Paul suspending his active campaign? Fox News' latest Obama scandal? Or Cory Booker and Chris Christie's kind-of-creepy, kind-of-awesome video parody?
Throw your suggestions out in the comments section and our editors will chime in with thoughts of our own.
