Funny Jon Stewart Mocks 2012 State of the Union Address

From Denny:  Bored from watching the State of the Union Address?  Jon Stewart pokes fun at both the address and the Round Table of Idiots to analyze said speech.  It's as if it's what you really want all those reporters to say, you know, like brain diarrhea and totally "socially inappropriate" - totally.

Like most comedians, Stewart feels it's his American duty to pummel this political joke fest into submission.  Jon especially enjoys watching the cut away photos of audience reactions - like that of the First Lady's to Obama's really bad joke.  "Honey, I told you that was so not funny and not to use it in the speech tonight."

Then Stewart moves on to lampoon the Republican response in the embodiment of wax figure Mitch Daniels.  The poor guy looks like he's been pickled in some lab jar of a mad scientist.  This is the same guy Republicans are begging to run for President to challenge the surge of Newt Gingrich.  Is it any surprise he is yet another bad choice?  Looks like Obama might win by just standing still, yeah, the Republican field is that bad.

And just for the disclaimer:  the third video clip is a bit saucy so if you have tender ears you might want to pass on it.  But hey, for all the rest of us, party on and enjoy the Wild Child formerly known as Jon Stewart! (He must have been a blast as a precocious five year old kid.)

On to the hilarious video clips...
