After the 112th Congress convened yesterday, Jon Stewart celebrated his pick for the Senate’s grumpiest member: Sen. John McCain (R-AZ)
“McCain’s old-man crankiness has gone off the charts,” Stewart said last night. “On the scale, he’s clearly gone from a man of wisdom all the way to full Gran Torino.”[TPM SLIDESHOW: Sanest Of The Sane? Top 25 Signs From The Stewart/Colbert Rally]
So Stewart gave McCain the full felt treatment, introducing puppet John McCain to The Daily Show.
“Ugh phooey, the lights are too bright,” puppet McCain said upon arriving on the set. “They burn my skin. You’re gonna make me look like a Mexican. Build the dang fence! Build it!”
