‘The Daily Show’ rap about the Michigan right-to-work battle (VIDEO)

December 12, 2012

After reviewing some of the chants labor protesters have used in Lansing this week, Comedy Central's Jon Stewart decided he could do better. So he put together his own "8 Mile"-style rap on "The Daily Show" Tuesday night. 

"Knees weak, arms heavy, working all day in a factory building Chevys. Like the Volt. You plug it in. Then you win. Ecologically, because if it was an actual race, you would not, actually," rapped Stewart. 

Check out the rap, which appears beginning at at the 5 minute mark below.
