Jon Stewart on Palin’s stand-up: “It was quite good actually”

I never thought I’d see the day where Jon Stewart was actually complimentary towards Sarah Palin. He even gives accolades to her first attempt in stand-up comedy on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.’

In this video, Stewart also juxtaposed Sarah Palin’s approach and style of talk to Mitt Romney, when he appeared on David Letterman’s show the same night. Stewart said “Mitt Romney is always going to be Gore to Palin’s Bush.”

Looks like Palin is winning the left over one step at a time.

    I have always liked John Stuart. I have seen him make fun of his own audience for getting their real news from him. He is quite funny, and I think he gets a lot more than he lets on.

    That being said, he was trying to rip her a new one. He has had a couple of “no words for it” segment where he does what he did with Palin. Specifically, when he says “quit your day job”, that was a dig, and not really a compliment coming from Stuart, although you can tell that part of him thought it was better than he would have ever imagined she could be.
