Daily Show Covers The Jewish Speaker

The blogs were going crazy this morning because the great Justin Bieber was on The Daily Show last night in a little gag where he and Jon Stewart switched bodies.

The blogs are going less crazy about an equally as funny sketch from last night’s show where John Oliver travels to Austin to do a report on the controversy behind the Republican Speaker of the House in Texas being Jewish. No, this isn’t a bunch of Jewish liberals seeing it as a shanda that a nice Jewish boy is a Republican. The controversy is around many evangelicals thinking that the speaker doesn’t have Christian values–because he’s Jewish.
