Like much of America, The Daily Show's host was exasperated by the verdict
of the Rod Blagojevich corruption trial, wherein "bonehead" prosecutors
and a "bought and paid for jury" managed to botch a conviction on all of

slam-dunk." If there was one winner in the whole sordid affair, he
notes, it had to be Blagojevich's legal team, "who are apparently
from the firm Rickles and Palpatine." Watch below as Jon Stewart even manages to work in a decent M. Night Shyamalan jab amid the inevitable Blago hair jokes.
