John McCain Becomes Jon Stewart’s Punching Bag For The Evening. And Forever

With a new freshman class of federal lawmakers taking over D.C. this week, some of them might look to their elders for advice on decorum, policy, and tie choice. The last person anyone should check in with, says Jon Stewart, is Arizona’s Sen. John McCain, otherwise known as America’s crankiest legislator. Pointing to his stance on the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, Stewart says the senator has gone “from a man of wisdom to full Gran Torino,” which means it’s now open season on McCain, and The Daily Show will spend 2011 incorporating him into every punchline possible.
