Mitt Romney has officially locked up the GOP nomination, and Jon Stewart, for one, is depressed: Now, we're facing a long, dreary election between "Johnny Pregnant Pause" (Obama) and "Captain Chucklebuns" (Romney). "This is election is going to suuuuck," he complained on the Daily Show last night. But what's this? Is it a gift from the comedy gods? It is! Donald Trump is back in the news campaigning for Romney and—can it be true? It is!—dredging up the birther issue.
Stewart gleefully skewers some recent Trump clips, like the Wolf Blitzer interview in which he insists that "many people" believe Obama's birth certificate is fake, but won't give a single name. "Look at my possessions, the only name I know is Trump," Stewart quips. "I use it like the Smurfs use Smurf. So don't Trump me Blitzer, or I'll shove my Trump so far up your Trump your head'll Trump!" Then he issues a plea: "Donald. You have to get back into the race for president!"
