Jon Stewart is filming his 'Daily Show' in Washington ahead of this weekend's 'Rally to Restore Sanity.' His guest list – and his questions – give the appearance that he's being soft on Democrats.
What do we mean by that? Well, Stewart landed President Obama as a guest for Wednesday’s show. That’s a coup for the comedian in advance of his “Rally to Restore Sanity,” scheduled for Saturday on the National Mall.
But to get Mr. Obama, maybe – just maybe – Mr. Stewart agreed to have some other administration folks on as well. Such as Monday’s headliner: the chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers.
“Our guest tonight, President Barack Obama’s ... chief economist Austan Goolsbee. He’s good, too,” said Stewart at the start of the show, sort of apologizing in advance for the interviewee.
