By now, it is beyond the capabilities of humans to satirize the dysfunction of the American political system, so “The Daily Show” went extra-terrestrial to prove its point on Wednesday night.
Jon Stewart and company took aim at the insanity of the issues and advertisements dominating the home-stretch of the midterm elections, with the host noting that we have left all Earth-bound rational thought behind.
“If aliens came down to Earth and watched our political ads they would think the Senate was an adult summer camp competition or some six-year pass to Dave & Buster’s,” Stewart cracked. “We got shootin’! Snow machines! Friday night’s keg night! C’mon down to the Senate!”
Then into the segment came Zorban 37, alias: Samantha Bee, to drive the point home.
Like Canada in 2004, Zorban may be receiving a flux of interest from potential emigrants by early November.
