I can’t tell you dumbfounded I was to see this Daily Show segment mocking the Berkeley City Council’s attempts to shut down their local Marine Corps recruiting station. It also mercilessly takes on hippies and the shrill harpies in Code Pink along the way. It’s a revelation. The Daily Show is actually able to do something other than have Jon Stewart elicit laughter by mugging incredulously at the latest overblown transgression of the Bush regime.
And FWIW, the Daily Show correspondent and the host of this segment, Rob Riggle, is a Major in the USMC Reserve, who has served in Liberia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan.
