Jon Stewart: Hurricane May Have Devastated East Coast, But At Least We’re Not In ‘Swing State Hell’
Jon Stewart told Americans hit hard by Hurricane Sandy to take solace in the fact that no matter how hard they may have it, at least they’re not being flooded by a constant barrage of political attack ads and appearances by presidential candidates that is close to driving the citizens of Ohio insane.
Stewart explained that, essentially, Ohio’s electoral votes are the only ones that matter now, hence why a ton of money is being spent on political ads in the state, more than any other state in the country. The ads are so bad, Stewart said Ohio voters are being haunted by “dream ads.”
Why don’t they turn off their TVs?, Stewart asked. Because the candidates are EVERYWHERE. He showed footage of President Obama, Mitt Romney, Joe Biden, and Paul Ryan going to every freaking town in Ohio. Stewart bemoaned the “never-ending, incessant relating to you” from the candidates, especially Ryan, who compared his hometown to almost literally every town in Ohio that he visited.
Correspondent Wyatt Cenac helped draw a direct contrast between Ohio’s political damage and the East Coast’s actual damage, warning Ohio voters to cut off its electricity, stack sandbags to cover up the TVs, and clean up all the debris (campaign signs) that have tragically afflicted their areas.
