Last week, everyone was shocked by the surprise victory of unemployed veteran Alvin Greene in the South Carolina Democratic primary. Greene, who will face long-time Senator Jim DeMint in the November election, further baffled commentators during his painfully awkward appearance on Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Viewers gawked, while some pundits speculated the Greene was a GOP plant.

To no one's surprise, Jon Stewart found both Greene's victory and the media's reaction equally hilarious. "In any other state, a triumphant story," quipped Stewart. "Only South Carolina can take a silk purse and turn it into a sow's anus."
