Jon Stewart Skewers Lindsey Graham

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is running for President and Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart couldn’t be happier.

Stewart has been ruthlessly mocking Graham for years on his faux-news comedy show, The Daily Show, so Graham’s decision to run for office can only mean good material for Stewart. In fact, Graham’s announcement speech turned out to be pure gold for the comedian as he took special care in showing just how laser-focused Graham is on terrorism. Under Stewart’s careful lampooning, the Graham announcement for President turned into the most artful bit of fear-mongering we’ve seen in a long time. It’s truly amazing.

In a short bit for Comedy Central Jon Stewart unmasks Lindsey Graham as a one trick pony who plans to campaign by scaring people silly.
