Jon Stewart expanded his assault on Jim Cramer to include Joe Scarborough. In defending Cramer, Scarborough attempted to criticize Stewart: "Politicians stumbles over himself. They pick it up. They edit it. He runs the clip. Then he makes a funny face and the audience has a Pavlovian response."
"What do I do now? He nailed me," mocked Stewart. "Here's what I didn't know. If I had picked on CNBC, Cramer would take it personally and get the whole NBC family involved. Don't mess with the peacocks."
Stewart then went on his own "rehabilitation tour" using Viacom shows. Viacom owns the family of networks that includes Comedy Central. While visiting Nickelodeon's Dora the Explorer, Dora used the spanish term for jackass to describe Cramer and Scarborough. "Why is everyone being such a pandejo?" ask Dora. "Hey, kids, can you say jackass in Spanish?"
"Hooray for the pandejos," exclaimed Stewart.

From Rachel Maddow's Ms. Information segment. A President who actually wants to fund the VA with a wife taking a personal interest in military families. Isn't that a breath of fresh air? Like everything President Obama has done during his short term in office or not this is definitely a change from the last administration who was more content using our troops as props than anything else. Michelle Obama has plans to visit Fort Bragg.
Mrs. Obama will be meeting with military spouses and speaking to community organizations that help support troops and their families. This visit comes after a March 3 trip to Arlington National Cemetery, where she addressed women in the military service to mark Women’s History month.
This isn’t the first time the First Lady has visited the North Carolina military base. In 2007, Obama joined an emotional roundtable of military families. She is quoted saying on President Barack Obama’s official website, "It felt like the first time that many of these women had even been asked how they were doing. The tears and the stories went on and on. So we had another roundtable, and then another one."
Obama has long said that she intended to work with military families, and said during the campaign, "If Barack is elected president, I would be honored to be first lady. I would work daily on the issues closest to my heart: helping working women and families, particularly military families."
SNL spoofs The Hulk and Rahm Emanuel with their parody "The Rock Obama". Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson actually does a pretty good job here as an impulsive Obama. I already knew he had a knack for comedy after his performance in Be Cool. Maybe Be Cool is not everyone's cup of tea but I thought the movie was very funny and Johnson's performance contributed greatly to why I enjoyed it.
I don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't already watched the clip but a very short synopsis is in order. The Rock Obama is not as nice to Tom Coburn, Kay Bailey Hutchinson and John McCain as the real life Obama would be, much to Rahm Emanuel's disappointment.
I'll leave any more spoilers than that to the comments section.
