By way of really elaborate football metaphors

(Newser) – It is September, which means just one thing to Jon Stewart ... it's time for midterms, and really elaborate football metaphors. First up last night, analyzing Obama's "version of a rousing morale booster between recessions half-time speech." But would he play the part of the inspirational coach, or be a screamer? Stewart's take: "Oh, BEEP! No he didn't! He went $50 billion-infrastructure-Oprah-Angel-Network on their ass. You get a hydroelectric dam, you get a hydroelectric dam, you get some type of sewage treatment plant."

But then Stewart starts to recall past plays ... like, "didn't we do this already? Shouldn't we have like a 22nd-century infrastructure by this point where the bridges and tunnels just come and pick us up at our houses?" Watch the entire segment for more flashy midterms-football graphics, and Stewart's swing at Jan Brewer.
