September 9, 2011 5:38 a.m.

When there’s conflict, Jon Stewart said Thursday, there’s a winner and a loser, and Mitt Romney clearly got “Rickrolled” in the Republican primary debate.

Romney painted himself as the intellectual candidate, referring to his 59 bullet-point jobs plan. Rick Perry, on the other hand, drew huge applause for being governor of a state which executed a couple hundred people and for declaring, “I hate cancer.”“There you have it,” Stewart said. “This is why this man is formidable. Republicans have a choice between a multi-point, fact-based plan that he thinks can get the economy going, or a guy who will punch cancer in the fucking face.”
