Jon Stewart on Larry King Live  
LARRY KING: The winners. You will know the winner before it's announced?

JON STEWART: No, no, of course it's a very protected process and it's very secretive and no one can know. Actually, no one does know until -- I feel badly for the guy in the orchestra. Bill Conte has to learn all five songs depending on whether or not who's going to win. I'm hoping Terrence Howard wins. I just want to hear Bill Conte and the orchestra play "It's Tough out Here for a Pimp." I just want to hear how that sounds with violins.

Read the whole transcript. Jon Stewart dips famously into his politics again, and it is brilliant.

My favorite bit...
KING: ...Bush 34 percent, lowest rating he's ever had and Cheney 18 percent.

STEWART: The 18 percent thing is you really have to think of this in -- let's look at this just purely statistically. Four out of five dentists surveyed recommend sugarless gum for their patients who chew gum. So, there is one out of five dentists who say "You chew gum? Ah, why not put sugar in it?"

These are not the best dentists, OK that's 20 percent. He's not even getting all the dentists who recommend sugared gum. That's low. I think Dracula has a higher Q rating right now than the vice president.

Brilliant indeed
STEWART [on the Daily Show]: You could produce an eight minute parody of "Star Wars" called Election Wars in which Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is Darth Nancy, evil cohort of sinister figures like Howard Dean and the dreaded campaign chair Rahm Emanuel. I've got news for you. If we are going to do the "Star Wars" analogy the Democrats are at best Ewoks, at best. Believe me, you'd be pumping up their egos to call them Jowas (ph).

I said it on Saturday and I'll say it now: sheer genius. This was better than the Academy Awards themselves! (Though I though he did fine.)

Man, did I crack up when he said "as a comedian, I want old and poor people to suffer".
