Jon Stewart sums up Rove (video)

Yes, the Daily Show scores again with Jon Stewart's Rove roundup. There's too many good moments in this clip for me to pull all the quotes, so I'll just give you one and poke you to go watch the rest. Stewart commenting on Matt Cooper's Meet the Press interview, where Cooper said he learned that he'd be more "discreet' about his emails: "I guess after this whole experience, I've learned that I would use better emoticons. The sideways winky-face... more evocative of a breech of national security." (Daily Show via Crooks and Liars)
