Like other famous Democrats, Jon Stewart is not pleased with Barack Obama.

In the wake of Matt Damon expressing disappointment with the Commander-in-Chief, the Daily Show host has come out in the latest issue of Rolling Stone and said, above all else, he's simply confused by the President.

"I'm not sure what he truly thinks is the right path," Stewart tells the magazine. "Other than that he believes the wealthy should pay a little bit more of their fair share."

Adds the comedian:

"He ran on this idea that the system and the methodology are corrupt," he says. "It felt like the country was upset enough that he had the momentum needed to re-evaluate how business is done. Instead, when he got elected, he acted as though the system is so entrenched that it has to be managed... I'm surprised at how much he deferred to the legislative process."

Ron Paul finished second at the Iowa Straw Poll this weekend, receiving 1% less of the vote than Michele Bachmann.

The answers Ron Paul gave at this month's Republican debate, regarding wasteful war spending, were met with raucous applause from the audience.

Ron Paul is really the first-ever Tea Party candidate, having railed against the federal government for years.

So why is no one taking Ron Paul seriously as a Presidential nominee? Why does Matt Damon seem like a more viable possibility to some? That's what Jon Stewart wants to know! Watch him take the media to task here:

Jon Stewart is not going to be voting for Presidential candidate and U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann anytime soon. That's a fairly safe assumption.

Still, he said last night that this week's Michele Bachmann Newsweek cover and its obvious implications should make the magazine ashamed.

Why? Said Stewart:

Stewart on Bachmann

"You gotta go pretty far out of your way to find a crappy photo of Michele Bachmann - and you did," Stewart said. "Be honest, Newsweek. You used that photo in a petty attempt to make Michele Bachmann look crazy."

Pretty much.

Of course, Stewart did get in a dig at the Tea Party favorite, adding, "You want a photo that makes her seem a bit off? Make it out of her words."

There are certainly many Michele Bachmann quotes from which to choose.

Your thoughts? Are people up in arms for good reason because of a subtle smear? Or is it just a photo that people read into because it's ... Bachmann?

Tell us: Is the Michelle Bachmann cover biased?

Jon Stewart defending Sarah Palin is not something you see every day, but the media's obsession with her old emails necessitated a Daily Show rant.

In a segment called "P-mail," Stewart ripped the press for providing "full team coverage" of the arbitrary release date of Palin's non-urgent messages.

Stewart notes, accurately, that the media harps on Palin for a sense of inflated self-importance, yet behavior like this contributes directly to it ...

It is absurd, really. At this point, all the classic Sarah Palin moments have been found and scrutinized to no end. What did they expect to discover?!

"For some reason, the media went DEFCON 1," Stewart said, rolling clips of news outlets disappointed by an apparent lack of any major scandals.

In one segment, CNN describes an email from someone complaining, "Palin was spotted with Trig in a car not wearing an approved car seat."

"That story better end with Palin getting out of the car and beating the woman with a tire iron," Stewart said. "Otherwise, why waste our time?"

Seriously. She resigned two years ago and is not running for office now. Let it go ... or at least start digging through Michele Bachmann emails.

If this isn't one of the top Daily Show moments in history, it's up there.

Coming under fire for going too easy on his friend, embattled Rep. Anthony Weiner, in recent days, Jon Stewart held a mock press conference to "resign."

In order to deal with the pain of quitting his post, he felt compelled to make a series of drinks (obviously) and cut his hand on broken glass in the process.

Watch Stewart hilariously continue the sketch while bleeding out:

Many critics felt the Daily Show's softball handling of Weiner, a known friend of Jon's, was absurd given that ... it's Jon Stewart. And it's Weinergate!

Apparently the critiques hit home with Stewart, who acknowledged this as only he can, “resigning” from his lofty post for failing to do his job properly.

In a similar setting to where Weiner gave a press conference a day earlier, admitting he sent lewd pics and "taking responsibility," Jon followed suit.

Some words - and shards of glass - cut too deep to ignore.

Jon Stewart has had enough of Donald Trump.

Because the real estate mogul perpetuated the absurd claim that Barack Obama is not an American citizen? No. Because he teased a Presidential run simply to garner ratings for his reality show? That's not why.

Because he hung out with Sarah Palin in New York City this week? You're getting closer.

But The Daily Show host didn't go off on Trump last night for hosting the Fox News correspondent. Instead, he took MAJOR issue with the way in which Trump snubbed the city of his (supposed) birth, from ignoring classic NYC eateries to using a fork on his pizza. Watch Big Apple pride and anger swell inside Stewart in the following, hilarious segment:

Anthony Weiner insists that his Twitter account was hacked last week and he never sent a picture of his crotch to a 21-year old follower.

Does that mean the photo is not of his manly region?

"I can’t say with certitude," Weiner told Luke Russert of NBC News, adding: “My system was hacked, pictures can be manipulated, dropped in and inserted. One reason I asked a firm to look at what the heck happened here... is to see maybe something was manipulated, maybe something was dropped in.”

Anthony Weiner Pic

Constantly referring to the release - and then immediate deletion - of this crotch shot as a "prank," Weiner has hired a private security firm to look into the issue.

Meanwhile, Jon Stewart is actually a long-time friend of the Congressman. Naturally, he had to chime in on the growing scandal. Watch him do so below.

Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly clashed over the non-issue that simply won't go away - Common's recent invite to the White House - Monday on Fox News.

Having already crushed Fox News over its treatment of the subject last week, the Comedy Central host more than held his own on Bill's home court.

When O'Reilly accused Common of defending cop killers, Stewart broadened the argument to discuss Fox's "selective outrage" against the rapper.

If the network's outrage is over an artist who writes sympathetically about convicted criminals visiting the White House, why didn't Fox attack Bono? Bob Dylan?

Noting that Bono wrote a song about Leonard Peltier, convicted of killing FBI agents, Stewart hilariously delivered a "Boo-yah!" that left Bill dazed.

Stewart's humor, however brilliantly timed, was only present briefly in what became a heated and thought-provoking exchange on the subject.

Watch the second half of their exchange below ...

As expected, some well-known Fox News "journalists" were all fired up about Common's White House visit this week, during which the rapper read a poem.

As expected, Jon Stewart took them to task in an EPIC rant last night.

In typical Stewart fashion, he shredded their argument by simply using Fox News' own words against it, making the network look like an absolute joke:

You wouldn't assume a Comedy Central show would be more trustworthy than a quote-unquote news channel, but it's fairly obvious that's the case here.

Regardless of whether Common should have been asked to attend Michelle Obama's poetry event, Fox News is just pulling stuff out of its collective arse.

Between their obvious hypocrisy, misquoting of Common and twisting anything to stir up controversy, it was not their best week, even by their low standards.

While he is, by all accounts, left of the political center, Jon Stewart has had many GOP members on the Daily Show and has a reputation as a well-respected interviewer.

After a recent appearance, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld tweeted that he "Just wrapped up one of the most thoughtful interviews" of his book tour.

Yet many prominent conservatives, Sarah Palin among them, keep holding out on Stewart. But why? Is she afraid of his questioning or of the gaffe potential?

Kiss 4 U

Is Sarah Palin ducking Jon Stewart? Or just not a fan?

Palin has been invited numerous times by Stewart, yet her spokeswoman, Rebecca Mansour, claims that she "doesn't recall being invited on Jon Stewart's show."

Mansour added that no one from Sarah's PAC does either, and that Palin's Fox News contract precludes her from appearing on other networks without approval.

The spokeswoman stressed: "She is certainly not 'afraid' to go on his or any show. Sometimes she chooses to avoid a show, such as David Letterman's."
