Last week, everyone was shocked by the surprise victory of unemployed
in the South Carolina Democratic primary. Greene, who will
face long-time Senator Jim DeMint in the November election, further
baffled commentators during his painfully awkward appearance on Countdown
with Keith Olbermann
. Viewers gawked, while some pundits speculated
the Greene was a GOP plant.
To no one's surprise, Jon Stewart
found both Greene's victory and the media's reaction equally hilarious.
"In any other state, a triumphant story," quipped Stewart. "Only South
Carolina can take a silk purse and turn it into a sow's anus."
