    I had trouble finding the funny in that segment, mostly because I was grinding my teeth waiting for someone to move that his distinguished colleague, the honorable gentleman from Kentucky, be beaten with a chair until medical exigency necessitates his retirement from the chamber for the evening.

    I didn't think that was that funny. They've done much better.

    I was laughing out loud at what a tool Rick Sanchez from CNN is.

    It was best at the end, when the audience was booing Jim Bunning's missing his precious basketball game....and when Jon said, "See? That's the difference between Jim Bunning's pain and the pain of the unemployed. Jim Bunning's pain can be fixed by a Tivo."

    That aspect was way underreported by the media. I only saw it in print somewhere, never saw video on TV. They should have run that clip over and over.

    I'm really curious as to where that "Senator Only" elevator goes to.

    The bathroom where they practice their foot tapping skills for when they have a long layover and are bored.

    Man, he is such a tool.

    Stewart's comparison of him to a guy at a party talking about how strong ants are was spot-on.

    Stewart said it perfectly: the guy is just an ******.

    I think it goes to a room in the basement where all the senators from both parties high-five each other and say to each other: "Can you believe how much we get paid for this s**t?"
