Jon Stewart tackles Muammar Gaddafi's death -- VIDEO

Saturday Night Live, take note: This is how you approach the death of Muammar Gaddafi for a comedy program. During Thursday night’s installment of The Daily Show, which aired just a few hours after the news that the Libyan dictator had been killed by rebel forces, host Jon Stewart gave it his all for the opening segment. Stewart offered up, among other things, perspective on why Gaddafi was murdered (“You know why they shot him? ‘Cause they’re rebels”), analysis on the reaction from the media (including those controversial photos) and U.S. politicians, tips to dictators (his “Dic-Tip”, if you will) who go into hiding (for instance, unless you’re the Road Runner, don’t hide in a hole) and, perhaps most importantly, his awesome Fruit Ninja score to Hillary Clinton. Watch the full clip below.

    Loved it – right balance of humor and asskicking. So obvious that the Republicans will not be happy with ANYTHING that happens under the Obama regime. Remember when Fox News anchors supported Rio’s bid for the Olympics and not Chicago (because Obama supported Chi town). That used to be called treason.

      And it was called treason on Fox News back in the W days whenever anyone said anything even vaguely negative about the president or, hell, even Texas. My hometown is so conservative that many restaurants *still* have “Freedom Fries” on the menu. But now the Republicans are giving props to the French so they don’t have to say something positive about Obama? Wow.

        amen, we still have freedom fries in my backwoods @#$ town. The french didn’t even create them or “freedom” toast and helped win our independence from GB. Ignorant @#$ republicans. But dems are just as ignorant and treasonous. CLEAN OUT THE CRIMINALS. Vote for your neighbor they could do it better. Remember most of founding fathers were average joes.

    I like how he waits for people to get the “No’Amor” graphic … and they don’t

      ‘dic-tip’ however? everyone got

  • Senator John McCain did give credit to President Obama.

    Senator John McCain did give credit to President Obama for getting rid of gaddafi, (who was responsible for blowing up Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie Scotland) on CNN. I think it’s great that Chicago did not get the Olympics because the USA is in too big a debt to afford the Olympics. We should spend our money on important stuff, such as education, domestic renewal energy to get away from imported energry, transportation, and rebuilding structures that are falling apart. The Olympics are a mulit billion dollar luxury the USA can not afford for a few years.

      How interesting, then, that McCain felt able to speak freely and honestly on CNN, but not on FOX News.

    How could Jon Stewart’s writers say this about a leader who help free South Africa , Namibia and other Subsaharan countries from European abuse and thievery — – we paid the Taliban and Al Quida to fight the Libyan people — remember we did that in Afghanistan against the Russians???Another quagmire for our young people to fight —!!!
