Although it can be a bit uncomfortable when Jon Stewart lampoons us for something like the shortcomings of the ObamaCare website, he is usually fully justified, even when I don't like it. However, I have to admit that I am much happier when Jon is setting his sights on a rat.

Yes, I agree. The Rove invited the tea party. And Stewart harpooned Rove.

Aww, I know you're a cat and all, but rats don't deserve a label so low. :P

Thanks for sharing, gotta love Jon Stewart! :)

When i wake up in the middle of the night. . .and everything is so still and peaceful and quiet. . .then i just wish we would all wake up one day and the --the GOP...the "rat race" et al dismal, deranged, depraved and misbegotten things born of fear, greed and hate were gone. . .forever. . .

I can think of many other faces that would fit onto that mouse.

I dunno - I think Rove's face belongs at the other end of the rat....

I think it's from before my time, but I have no idea what this 'blossom' thing is that keeps being mentioned in connection to Rove is. After seeing Steward making mince meat out of Rove, I'm even further from seeing how a blossom could have anything in common with this weasel... sorry, rat of a man. Does he really think that people buy into his 180° turn on a dime and pat him on the back for being such a good old Republican?

I loved the way Jon Steward in fact put all the Republicans to shame by telling them they had absolutely no right to complain about the Teabaggers as they had invited them in. Great job, Jon, tell it like it is!

Given that he was a key strategist with torture against alleged terrorism and Middle East foreign policy strategies, and we all know what those led to, he shouldn't be surprised this turned out with unacceptable results as well.

I forget, has he been in your "Republicans on Parade"? He may need a top spot, move over Cruz.

What is that saying "be careful what you wish for"? He wanted to shake things up and look where they're at, slowly sinking in numbers and except for the most rabid wing-nut, no one likes them or agrees with them. Now what course of action will he take to calm the masses from their self implosion, how does he get rid of those he invited in the first place? Can you uninvite a crazed maniac? I think not!

Oh drat it – another video that only plays in the United States – even though The Daily Show is seen over here on the Comedy Channel Xtra at 11.30 pm (it is a day later than when seen in the US)…. I really really like Jon Stewart – and he's usually right!

In essence Mr. Rove said, "I'm shocked, shocked that the far right would take me seriously."

Rove is one of the sleaziest bastards that ever came up from the cesspool that is the GOP' heart!
Too bad that fellow could not complete the "citizen's arrest" on him a few years ago.

Have to say the Truth can be fun...especially if Stewart. Thanks for the invite.

Love seeing Rove skewered. He is largely responsible for many of the messes left to us by Dubya. McCain did let the crazies out when he picked Palin as his VP candidate, deserves all the scorn we can give for that.

Interesting. So Rove has a goal of not having stupid candidates who can't win a general election? What about stupid leadership, as well as stupid candidates, who are out of touch with the American people? Seems to me that the Republicanus/Teabaggers scored 10 out of 10 on that account!

The Brotherhood of Brown Rats is going to get you good for that picture of Turd Blossoms head transplanted onto a brown rat's body.

Rove is mentally ill and needs many years of counseling before he should be out in society.
