Jon Stewart To Gingrich Supporters: ‘Don’t Do This’

Hey, Republican voters, think Newt Gingrich is your best hope to restore the GOP’s glory? Well…

Jon Stewart did his best on Thursday to convince Republican voters to avoid Gingrich at all costs. “Don’t do this,” he said. “Seriously. I know you’re mad-der than usual. Country’s being run by a foreign-born Hawaiian … radical Christian Muslim socialist who’s in the pocket of Wall Street…”And sometimes Gingrich can sound like the answer, Stewart added, with Newt’s jabs at the media and mentions of Ronald Reagan every several sentences. But here’s the thing:

“He’s not Reagan,” Stewart said. “He’s more like a Normal Rockwell painting of Ayn Rand kicking Jimmy Carter in the balls. … Reagan had a certain charm and gentility. Gingrich is like what would happen if Reagan had been abandoned as a child and raised by a family of cactuses.”
