Jon Stewart Mocks Herman Cain's Press Conference (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart's ongoing field day with the Herman Cain sexual harassment scandal continued Wednesday night, with Stewart ripping apart the GOP presidential candidate's damage control press conference Tuesday.

After highlighting Cain's many third-person references, Stewart declared him to be in stage four of a political sex scandal. One being denial, two being recollection and three being "I'm not going to talk about this anymore." Four, of course, is the press conference where you stand in front of a bunch of flags and try to make it look like you didn't mess up stages one through three.

First noting Cain's solid denial at the top of the conference, Stewart wondered why he didn't start defending himself that way all along. But he was quickly reminded why, as Cain made gaffe after gaffe, undercutting his own remarks and blaming the "Democratic machine" for his media worries.

There's only one problem with that defense, though, as Stewart points out: Democrats have no problem with sexual misconduct. Come on, Cain. Don't you remember the 90s?
