Excerpts from Jon Stewart's jabs & Rick Sanchez's rant

Saturday, October 2, 2010

Here are excerpts from Comedy Central's "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart":

Video of Rick Sanchez: "Let me bring Jackie in -- Chad's standing here -- I'm looking over here side at the other side of the room now -- Switch that camera over there -- Look at all the guys we have over here -- Over there -- Go back to your original map -- Put the map back up."

Video of other anchor: "Dude, I have so many maps, I just have to find it."

Video of Sanchez: "I'm not even sure who's directing . . . "

Video of other anchor: "You are!"

Stewart: "CNN, the most trusted name in overcaffeinated control freaks. That's the thing about news in a disaster. You need the information fast. And inaccurate."

Stewart: "I just realized something. Rick Sanchez delivers the news like some guy at a party who's doing a lot of coke and traps you in a corner and explains really intensely how an ant is the strongest animal on earth. [Stewart begins imitating that type of guy]: 'I'm telling you, man, they're tiny, but they carry a stick! Like 78 times their own size! It's like you picking up a car! Can you pick up a car? Answer? No! You can't! Now, I'm going to go to the bathroom for a second, but we're not done talking about how crazy strong ants are. All right buddy?' The truth is, when Sanchez gets like this, there's really only one way to handle it. We're going to have to do this." [Pulls a lever]

Here are excerpts from Sanchez's radio appearance on "Stand Up! With Pete Dominick":

RS: "I think Jon Stewart's a bigot."

PD: "You think Jon Stewart is a bigot? Hold on, now were going to get into it -- Jon Stewart my old boss, my friend."
