Jon Stewart had a lot of material to cover on Monday night, spending a segment discussing Rick Perry's highly animated New Hampshire speech and wading into the resurfaced accusations of sexual harassment against Herman Cain. The Daily Show host sticks to an overview of the Cain reports, making a few pizza jokes before noting how Cain answered a question from a Fox News interviewer about whether or not he had ever settled a claim of sexual harassment (3:20 in clip). Stewart saved most of the laugh lines for his treatment of the Texas governor's goofy Granite State address. On the Perry video, he flatly remarked (6:40 in video): "Best case scenario, that dude's hammered. Worst case scenario, that is Perry sober and every time we've seen him previously, he's been hammered."
