"The Daily Show" loves to make fun of South Carolina, but last night Jon Stewart turned his eye North to the "marginally saner Carolina" (his words, not mine!).
Stewart tackled AndyGate. You know what we're talking about. How the world has turned against poor old Andy Griffith because he made a commercial supporting health care reform. In the segment titled "Mayberry, WTF," a stunned Stewart asks, "How do you turn against Opie's pa? Matlock! He's a Presidential Medal of Freedom winner. What happened, North Carolina, did Griffith wipe his [behind] on one of Dean Smith's old jackets?"
Stewart also shows a clip of Fox News host Bill O'Reilly chastising correspondent Megyn Kelly for not knowing that "Thelma" was "Andy's squeeze" (O'Reilly then makes some bad gay jokes about Andy and Barney). So then Jon Stewart calls out O'Reilly because AS WE ALL KNOW, Thelma Lou was Barney's girlfriend and Helen Crump was Andy's. So there, Fox News.
The segment is hilarious. Watch below. (If the player below doesn't work, click here).
