A funny — and at times, devastating — take on the controversy involving the New Yorker cover from Jon Stewart and the Daily Show.

Stewart suggests that the more appropriate response from Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois — rather than being offended (or saying the cover "fueled some misconceptions about me," as he did on CNN last night) — would be to have said "Barack Obama is in no way upset about the cartoon that depicts him as a Muslim extremist. Because you know who gets upset about cartoons? Muslim extremists! Of which Barack Obama is not. It’s just a f—ing cartoon!"

Stewart may be even more effective when skewering the media, though. Watch HERE.
