"The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" officially launched "Indecision 2012" on Tuesday with a parody teaser re-introducing viewers the Comedy Central series' long-running election-coverage franchise.
The send-up of horror movie trailers puts political correspondent John Oliver at Monday's Republican candidate debate, where he confronts the hopefuls and their aides and winces and groans at their predictably painful replies.
"Who do you think won the debate," he asks of a Ron Paul lackey.
"Hands down it was Dr. Ron Paul," came the expect answer.
"The Daily Show" should have a lot of easy material over the next 18 months.
