Hilarious: Stewart and Colbert React to Perry's Racist Hunting Grounds

 Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert both jumped on this weekend's story about Rick Perry's old family hunting grounds with the racist and offensive name "niggerhead."

Perry gave them the proverbial low-hanging fruit and boy, did they run with it.

For Stewart with help from correspondent Wyatt Cenac, the controversy was a chance to joke about the faux-existence of other places in the country with names that contain the N-word.

For Colbert, it was a chance to explore our former president's histories and come up with an extremely offensive (faux) list of places in their pasts. He gets a dig in at conservative commenters on the internet, too.
