Jon Stewart takes on South Carolina

Jon Stewart's unique and hysterical take on Alvin Greene winning the Democratic Senate primary in South Carolina:

My favorite section is near the end, when Stewart mocks the Democrats' allegations that Greene was some sort of Republican plant:
This is the Republican's fault?  Really?  Even if they fronted the patsy, y'all voted for him!  They didn't trick you.  They didn't enter a guy with a misleading name like Grit Gravybiscuit or Nascar Johnson or Robert E. Leibovitz. 
It was Greene vs. Rawl, and a hundred thousand Democrats walked into a polling place and said, "I dunno either of these guys, uhh, I guess I'm ill-informed and I could easily not vote, but **** it, I like the color Greene...
Did the Republicans spend a lot of money on ads for Alvin Greene?  No.  Did they spend any money on Alvin Greene.  No.  Did they ask Alvin Greene to leave his father's basement once during the campaign?  No!  This is a prank?  No!  
This is the political equivalent of running yourself a warm bath, falling asleep next to it with your hand in the tub, wetting yourself, and then blaming the Republicans!
