“The Daily Show“‘s Al Madrigal on why no candidate “living, dead or fictional will ever satisfy the Tea Party”:
- Ronald Reagan: He “was a Hollywood Commie who raised taxes, grew government, and gave amnesty to illegal immigrants. That poor son of a bitch would get eaten alive by this crowd.”
- Thomas Jefferson: “The man cut up his Bible, loved the French, and had a well-documented case of jungle fever… Try again.”
- Superman: “Illegal immigrant.”
- Optimus Prime: “He accepted the auto industry bailout.”
House Speaker JOHN BOEHNER (R- Ohio), caught on an open mic bragging about his golf game with Vice president Joe Biden before the President’s address last night. The Speaker hit the links during Congress’s five-week recess.
