Stewart Tackles Perry Indictment: Headed for ‘Orange Is the New Blecch’?

Jon Stewart took on Rick Perry‘s indictment Thursday night, and while he might not have thought there was much to it, it still amused Stewart to imagine Perry ending up on Orange Is the New Black or something like it.

Stewart expressed some mock-disappointment with the possibility of Perry getting jail time, because that would mean he would be denied some good comedy with a potential Perry 2016 run.

There’s just a few snags. First, it smells of a “political hit job.” And secondly, some Democrats and even The New York Times think it’s unfair to Perry. But Stewart figured that’s only because they want Perry to run in 2016 for their own amusement.
