Herman Cain is "a man who believes it's appropriate to refer to a former Soviet satellite as 'Uz-beki-beki-stan-stan,' and has never met a question he couldn't answer with '9-9-9,'" Jon Stewart reminisced last night. "I host a comedy program and don't like working hard, so: We belong together." It goes without saying, then, that the Daily Show host is going to miss Cain "sooo much" now that he's dropped out of the race.

But Stewart made the most of his last moments with Cain, mocking everything about his farewell speech, from his ridiculous entrance to his even more ridiculous use of a Pokemon song. Watch the video to see Stewart quote Celine Dion in a very serious manner, point out several more relevant lines from Pokemon Cain could have used instead, and, finally, hilariously, compare Newt Gingrich to that ancient can of La Choy baby corn in the back of your pantry.
