Jon Stewart took on the controversy surrounding the new political ad that President Obama released touting the death of Osama bin Laden.

Of course, as with anything the President does, the Republicans took offense and quickly condemned the ad as being divisive.  Jon Stewart, of course, wasn't having any of that.  His commentary on the entire subject matter echoed my sentiments so spot on that I felt there wasn't a need for me to say anything but rather just play what he had to say about the entire matter.

Here's how Stewart started the show:

So let me get this straight. Republicans, you are annoyed by the arrogance and braggadocio of a wartime president’s political ad? You think he is divisively and unfairly belittling his opponents. I see. Have a question. Are you on crack? Were you alive lo these past ten years? It seems unseemly for the president to spike the football. Bush landed on a fucking aircraft carrier [...], he spiked the football before the game had even started!


Stewart concluded, “Look, Republicans, yeah, the Obama ad, kinda shitty, a little of a cheap shot, but the only reason you are pissed is that you didn’t get to run it.”

Stewart then went on to show a campaign ad video that Pres. George W. Bush would have ran had bin Laden been killed during his presidency.  Let's just say it was definitely something I could have seen coming from the mind of someone like Karl Rove.
