(Newser) – The leader of the free world held a 'backyard summit' in a leafy Des Moines suburb on Wednesday. How'd that go? Um, not so well, apparently. The New York Times says the president received a "polite" welcome but faced "pointed" and "barbed" questions from the audience of 70. Jon Stewart mocked the meet-up last night, basically calling Obama a big bore. Obama tried "desperately not to be upstaged by a beehive of chili peppers," he joked.

He then did his best Obama impression: "Let's cut the bullshit: How many peppers would I have to eat for you people to vote Democratic this year? Two? Three? A whole beehive? Someone get me a glass of milk. Democrats rule!" Stewart follows that up with ... a poop joke.
