While discussing Rep. Steve Cohen's inappropriate comparison of the GOP to Joseph Goebbels, Fox News's Megyn Kelly claimed this week that the pundits and hosts on her network never equate their opponents to Nazis. Well, as you can probably imagine, it took almost no effort for Jon Stewart and the Daily Show staff to thoroughly refute Kelly's assertion. Maybe next time, she'll stick to statements that aren't quite as demonstrably false. You know, like, "the sky is red" or "water is dry."

Did you hear President Obama said he wants to run over all the Republicans with the Democrats' car and stuff all their bodies in the trunk? Not cool, Mr. President. Fix your teleprompter.

Last week, Stephen Colbert testified before Congress about illegal farm workers, and many in Washington were outraged. In fact, I heard one Congressman was so incensed, he could barely even finish the oil industry-funded baby he was feasting on for lunch.
After the jump, Stephen Colbert apologizes to Iowa.

You will be happy to know that the majority of your fellow Americans are pretty okay with Arizona's "Show me your papers!" law…
The Pew Poll, conducted in early May, shows that more than 60 percent of Americans support the Arizona law's separate provisions, which give police increased authority to question and detain people they suspect of being in the country illegally…
[Pew Research Center President Andrew] Kohut said he was particularly surprised about the level of support among Democrats. Fifty percent of Democrats said they support the law provision allowing police to question anyone they think may be in the country illegally.
Very encouraging! Really makes you want to go out there and stop 6 out of 10 random people on the street and shake their hands and buy them lunch and thank them for doing such an excellent job at being Americans, huh?
But, you're probably thinking, all of these people — this near-two-thirds majority of the country — they probably don't understand what this law really means. Would they all be so quick to support it if they knew that it meant that legal United States citizens of Latino lineage were going to be unfairly targeted by the police?
Interesting question, you…
"71 percent of Americans think that legal Latino citizens will be harassed by police. 71 percent! So you have 71 percent of Americans thinking that Latinos, legals, will be harassed, and they still support the measure!"
That's former Reagan staff-member and conservative radio host Mark Levin, discussing the poll with a slavering Fox News host Megyn Kelly and pundit Mike Gallagher. Of course, as Megyn Kelly was quick to point out, Levin is totally wrong. (It's 66 percent, which, really, is practically zero percent.)
Oh, hippos. When will you ever go extinct?

You know, it's one thing for Goldman Sachs to have the balls to defraud investors and still hand out billions in bonuses, but it's almost like a bad joke that along with those balls their name is basically Gold Man-Sacks. Though, we can take some solace in the fact that they got rid of their original name, Iron-Scrot Asteroidnuts and Sons.
Stephen Colbert's take on the Goldman Sachs charges can be found below.
