Jon Stewart Mocks Sarah Palin’s Double Standard Over Inflamed Political Rhetoric

Jon Stewart opened The Daily Show tonight by discussing the miraculous recovery of “the victim our nation has been tracking so closely for the last ten days.” Of course he was talking about Sarah Palin, who last night sat down with Fox News Sean Hannity for her first live interview since becoming a central character in the finger pointing that followed the Arizona shooting tragedy. Stewart ridiculed Palin’s hypocrisy of calling out inflamed rhetoric whilst making the very same types of attacks herself.

It was a brilliant take down of the angry Alaskan Governor, best summed up with Stewart saying “Is it possible Governor that you have become a lightening rod, less for your clarity of vision but more for your ability to turn any criticism of you into persecution of you, while still very casually being able to dismiss a pretty large portion of America.”
