Jon Stewart Discovers That Shirley Sherrod Caused Global Warming by Being Racist Against Nice Cool Weather
A newly Van Dycked Jon Stewart and the Daily Show team finally get around to reporting on that whole Shirley Sherrod incident. Like, where were they on this for the past two weeks, huh? What were they on vacation or something?
Daily Show coverage of this breaking news story, with Senior Racist Correspondent Wyatt Cenac, continues after the jump.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.

Unfortunately, this case untreatable. It's brought on by some sort of inoperable blockage of ethics and rationality in the objective lobe. So long as Fox News is fed a steady stream of stupid from the heart of America — which, let's face it, will not be cut off anytime soon — it will continue to present symptoms of chronic assholeishness.
But the good news is that in its present condition it can live a long and extremely profitable life as a make believe news organization providing make believe news to people who just don't give a shit. Note the particularly ratings-bloated tumor named Bill O'Reilly that Rachel Maddow confronts her in this clip from last night…
The patient's history on this matter can be observed after the jump. Make sure to scrub up first. The patient's immune-to-criticism system is badly compromised.

Unfortunately, science has not yet created a machine that would allow us to travel backwards along the fourth dimension to a point in spacetime when it would have been considered advantageous to behave as principled adults and reconsider our actions.
So, I guess Shirley Sherrod will just have to settle for a few lame apologies from Robert Gibbs and Tom Vilsack…
Former Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod says she wants to discuss racial issues with President Obama, but there's need for him to apologize for her wretched week…
Sherrod got apologies from press secretary Robert Gibbs and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, but says, "I can't say the president is fully behind me." She says Obama is not a person who "has experienced some of the things I've experienced in life."
I don't know. Let me think about this? Has he ever been completely fucked over in the most nauseatingly craven way imaginable by top government officials and had his career and good name offered as sacrifice to blatant partisans and documented peddlers of politically-charged lies?
I'm gonna have to check, but my instincts say that he hasn't. So, she might be right about this.

Republicans Will Certainly Absolutely No Doubt Take Control of the House in November, Robert Gibbs Pretty Much Says
White House Press Secretary was on Meet the Press yesterday with an important message for Democrats looking toward the midterm elections: Don't get your hopes up…
"I think there's no doubt there are enough seats in play that could cause Republicans to gain control. There's no doubt about that," press secretary Robert Gibbs told NBC's "Meet the Press."
Democrats now hold a 255-178 edge in the House, with two vacancies in the 435-member chamber. Anywhere from 40 to perhaps 60 House seats could be competitive by the fall. Republicans would need to take back about 40 seats to slip into the majority, placing the current GOP leader, Ohio Rep. John Boehner, in line to replace Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., as speaker.
But it's not hopeless, right? There's still a chance that the Democrats could implement some strategy that would allow them to keep the house, isn't there?
Gibbs said retaining House control would depend on strong campaigns by Democrats.Oh, so it is hopeless. Damn.
