I’m one of those people who basically get their news from The Daily Show. Jon Stewart is appointment television for me—especially during the election cycle. There is so much that is inherently ridiculous about our electoral process…including much of the regular news. In my opinion, you get a better perspective by watching someone present the information through unabashed satire. TDS always seems to find great ways to cut through the crap. In one of their most recent pieces, they sent John Oliver and Jason Jones to a middle school to act as professional campaign strategists to two students running for class president. This is part one. The second part aired tonight, with one more still to come. It is fantastic. Oliver and Jones sweep in, holding fundraisers at a local steakhouse, pushing negative campaign ads in the cafeteria, and forcing their thirteen year old candidates to hit up their relatives for money over the phone to fill the war chests. There is nothing funnier than watching Jason Jones and John Oliver swear in frustration while dealing with the slightly confused but still game middle school students. Score another point for Jon Stewart and the brilliant minds at The Daily Show.
