Like much of America, The Daily Show's host was exasperated by the verdict of the Rod Blagojevich corruption trial, wherein "bonehead" prosecutors and a "bought and paid for jury" managed to botch a conviction on all of the twenty-four counts except, "the lying thing...that one was kind of a slam-dunk." If there was one winner in the whole sordid affair, he notes, it had to be Blagojevich's legal team, "who are apparently  from the firm Rickles and Palpatine." Watch below as Jon Stewart even manages to work in a decent M. Night Shyamalan jab amid the inevitable Blago hair jokes.
