Jon Stewart lamented on Wednesday night’s “The Daily Show” that until the Clinton-Mezvinsky baby is eligible to run for president — 2052, folks — all we have to look forward to is a “lame remix” of Clinton v. Bush.
“Thank God we fought a bloody war against England so that political power would no longer be consolidated in but one family,” Stewart quipped. “Because to my mind, two just makes sense. I mean, consolidated in three families, that’s too much. Then you got yourself a whole ‘Game of Thrones’ thing going on, you got the killing, you got the sex. We’re going to keep it to two families — it feels right.”
Stewart goes on to detail the speculation swirling around former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s (R) future plans, the gravitational pull of Hillary Clinton’s potential candidacy on everything in the political universe — Monica Lewinsky included — and how Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s (R) “glasses of ensmartenment” could give him a second chance at the presidency.
