Brilliant, brilliant.

Last night the Daily Show’s Jon Stewart viciously mocked NBC for editing out the 7/7 segment from the Olympic opening ceremony.

NBC, the network that to commemorate 9/11 actually reruns 9/11, wouldn’t air a six minute tribute to the rest of the world’s terrorist victims?

He also ridicules #RomneyShambles, and asks him how could screw up the trip.
