Daily Show Reveals Unused Gen. McChrystal Rolling Stone Cover

Jon Stewart predicted last night Gen. Stanley McChrystal would be headed for immediate resignation (he tapes his show in the early evening – maybe before Pres. Obama’s comments).

So although he may have more days to expand on the story later this week, he got some initial shots in during Tuesday’s show – including revealing an unused cover.

After playing clips of anchors reading some of the key passages from the article, Stewart said, “What the f**k does any of this mean?!” (The above image is Stewart playing a ‘clown stuck in 1985’ – what an aide apparently called National Security Adviser Jim Jones.) And assuming the persona of Gen. McChrystal: “Hey, wait, you’re with I’ll-never-print-this Magazine right?…You know I may be a four-star General and you may be a reporter for some hippie magazine, but I feel like I can trust you.”

But then Stewart got his hands on the non-Lady Gaga cover of the upcoming Rolling Stone. Look familiar?
