The Daily Show comes to OSU


If you watch Comedy Central, you know Ohio provides the network's faux news staffs with as much material as any other state in the land, a tribute to the morons who run this place. (Just in case, here are two hilarious examples, courtesy of You Tube: The first is from The Daily Show, and profiles an Erie County Democrat who wants to legalize drunk driving. The second is a Colbert Report interview with Cleveland congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs-Jones. With this in mind, the network announced recently that The Daily Show will tape its midterm election preview episodes in Ohio. The "Midwest Midterm Midtacular" will be taped between October 30 and November 2 at Ohio State before a live audience of stoned Poli Sci majors. For tickets, email -- Joe P. Tone
