(Newser) – The moment the words were out of his mouth, Chris Matthews must have known he was bait for Jon Stewart, who last night on the Daily Show couldn't resist calling Matthews—who also "might have forgotten you're miked"—“one scotch away from being Ron Burgundy.” He then brought on Wyatt Cenac to analyze the media's response to the president's address. After using phrases like “pompous punditry,” and “trapped in a Sartre play,” Cenac gasped, “I forgot I was black!” before breaking into an impressive rendition of “Pants on the Ground.”

Cenac then confessed that as Stewart talked to him, he remained "acutely aware that you're a Jew."
