This Morning's Video Wake-Up with Leppert, Jeffress, Perry, Olbermann and Jon Stewart
Speaking of the Perrys: The Daily Show returned from a week-long hiatus last night and promptly tee'd up a segment on Perry's sudden and dramatic plunge in the polls thanks to his having to actually speak, or whatever that is he does, in public. At which point Jon Stewart flashed back to First Baptist Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress's endorsement of Rick Perry two weeks ago, after which the pastor once more called Mormonism "a cult." Jeffress, who once shared a big red button with congregant Tom Leppert, delivered what Stewart considers "the sweetest, most good-natured, pleasant shit on an entire religion I have ever seen." Following that, Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas's own Wyatt Cenac and Samatha Bee square off: Team Mormon vs. Team Normal. Spoiler: It doesn't end well for the Jew. Watch last night's teevee today on the other side.
