Jon Stewart Skewers Fox News VP Debate Response, Tells Sarah Palin 'Settle Down Eskimo Annie Oakley' (VIDEO)

When "the ghost of Barack Obama" showed up at the first presidential debate, supporters and pundits alike acknowledged the failure. Chris Matthews and the rest of MSNBC were visibly disturbed by the president's weak showing, speculating at length on what went wrong. So when Joe Biden wiped the floor with Paul Ryan in the VP debate, it was Fox News' turn to admit their guy's failure, right? Nope.

As Jon Stewart outlined on Monday night's "Daily Show," the fair and balanced (between right and far-right) network went out of its way to decry the Vice President as a crazy, drunk, mean-spirited coot. Or as Sarah Palin put it, a musk ox or something.
