Jon Stewart Celebrates Clint Eastwood's 'Fistful Of Awesome' While Tearing Romney's Speech Apart (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Much has been made of Clint Eastwood's bizarre speech at the Republican National Convention, but few have endeavored to explain what it really means. On Friday's "Daily Show," Jon Stewart not only reveled in the absurdity of the scene -- "This is the most joy I've gotten from an old man since Dick Cheney non-fatally shot one in the face." -- but also used it as a launching point for one of the more scathing commentaries of Romney's acceptance speech so far.

The full segment can be watched in three parts: the first lauds Eastwood's "fistful of awesome," the second takes on Romney's whitewashed portrait of America, and the third brings home the real message of Eastwood's speech: the difference between the real Obama and Republicans' Obama.

Watch part one above and parts two and three below, and let us know if you think Stewart nailed it in the comments.
