Daily Show Special: Why Rick Perry Could Win

Quite a week in the US of A: a Republican debate and the President's jobs speech to congress. Yawn. Still, Jon Stewart broke down the GOP dynamic and, more to the point, why Rick Perry could be the next president. Ranger Rick isn't appealing to our heads but to a place a bit further south on our anatomy. Hilarious yet chilling analysis of the choice ahead in 20212. Check out the video below.

Plus, it includes the zeitgeist moment of the 2012 race so far -- hundreds of charged-up Republicans in the Reagan library, huddled below Air Force One, erupting into cheers and applause at the mention that Perry has executed more people than any modern governor. PS He wasn't one bit embarrassed.
