You know that moment when you realize you have really put your foot in your mouth?
Like, seriously, put your foot in your mouth.
Well, if your answer is yes, than you have a little something in common with Jon Stewart.
Here’s how it began -
So, last night Jon Stewart went on Letterman and somewhere in the conversation Jon Stewart starts talking about the Presidential Candidates and how fake certain candidates look. Mitt Romney in particular. Stewart says that Romney is similar to that of the Rin Tin Tin dog…a little too much avatar-like animation involved.
And then Letterman says that Mitt Romney looks like the guy from the package of underwear (And, quick side note, he actually does look like he is from an underwear ad, doesn’t he?)
A little bit of teasing ensues about whether or not either of them wear underwear and then Stewart says it. After asking whether Letterman even needs to buy underwear, he says, “At this stage in your career, you have people who can just sit there and hug your groin for you.”
While gritting his teeth, Letterman bites back with, “Jon…Jon…I had a little bit of trouble along those lines.”
Cue Jon Stewart getting beat red. The audience roars with laughter.
And then Jon Stewart confesses, “Halfway through that bit, I was thinking, ‘Oh What the f*** am I doing?’
You know, all of this sort of reminds me of the PBS Documentary coming out about former President Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. Dirty deeds never go unpunished…or forgotten…or removed from the memories of the audience…or the memories of comedians…or in these cases, the memories of major news programs and political commentators.
