Jon Stewart Investigates the 'Lost Party': Republicans

They've been out of office for three months and already they're collapsing in on themselves like a hollowed-out wedding cake. Arlen Specter defected, President Obama's approval ratings are through the roof and everyone's wearing blue this season. Yes, Republicans have tried everything from an "off the hook" public relations offensive to handing the party over to a child, and are still losing ground to the Democrats.

Jon Stewart premiered a new segment last night that chronicles the Republican's woes and the possible solutions called "The Lost Party." Last night we watched as leaders of the GOP ate "local ethnic food in casual attire" proving their allegiance to the common man. Unfortunately, this make-over came with no new ideas.
