Earlier today, I hinted about a certain Leader of the Free World paying Jon Stewart and the Daily Show team a visit next week — and, I'll tell you, the suits upstairs were none to happy with me, but luckily I made it so hard to figure out who I was talking about that they decided not to fire me — but it turns out that that news was just the tip of the iceberg!
Okay, yes, Comedy Central has confirmed that President Barack Obama will be on the Daily Show next Wednesday, October 27 at at 11pm / 10c during its week-long "When Grizzlies Attack: A 'Daily Show' Midterm Teapartyganza" pre-election coverage from Washington D.C. blah blah blah blah blah.
But now it turns out that next week's Teapartyganza show will also feature appearances from now other than D.C. All-Stars Council Of Economic Advisors Chairman Austan Goolsbee on Monday October 25 and U.S. Senator Ted Kaufman (D-Delaware) on Tuesday October 26. I know, right! It's all happening for us, people! This is our time!
After the jump, check out Austan Goolsbee's previous appearance on the show in February. (Obama's previous appearance can be found here.)
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.

Joe Biden — who will be sworn in as vice-president in just a few days — has somehow been persuaded to vacate the Senate seat that he was just sworn into for the 7th time just ten days ago.
Apparently, somebody managed to successfully explain to Biden that there's a new guy coming in, and he'll only have to not be an elected official for a little while…
Ted Kaufman, a Delaware Democrat who for decades has been a political adviser to Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., was sworn in Friday to fill the Senate seat Biden relinquished to become vice president…
Delaware Gov. Ruth Ann Minner, who appointed Kaufman to fill Biden's vacated Senate seat, joined Biden in watching the swearing-in from the visitors' gallery. Biden, who will become vice president next Tuesday, formally resigned Thursday after 36 years in the Senate.
Our thoughts and prayers are with former Senator Biden during these trying four days of non-public service.
