Herman Cain is not having a good week. Sexual harassment allegations threaten the GOP sort-of-frontrunner’s presidential campaign. But Jon Stewart has Cain’s back.

“In Herman Cain’s defense,” Stewart said Monday, “there is very little in the pizza world that is not sexually suggestive. “Hey, you want sausage on your pie? Hey, want me to stuff your crust? I guarantee I will come in 30 minutes or less.”You get the idea. But forget the incoherence of Cain’s policy plans, Stewart said. “If he’s telling the truth, he’s just a nice church-going guy and everything he does now is tainted by these allegations.” Even his simple love for ice cream: “Black walnut, because it tastes good all the time,” Cain has said.

“That just sounds really dirty now,” Stewart said.
