I figured that Tuesday's presidential debate would be a biggie on The Daily Show, and I was right. I was looking forward to Jon Stewart's take on it.

Mitt Romney continued to lie in this debate, but at least he had an opponent who pointed that out on occasion. This debate was a lot better in that regard.

And, believe it or not, we actually got fact-checking during the debate, at least once:

OK, I've just got to post this cartoon after that!  :)


And if you missed Stephen Colbert's take on the debate, it's here, here, here, and even here (the third segment is particularly good).

I'm surprised Romney didn't get more flack for the assault rifle answer. It was easily as bad as the binders full of women answer.

True, John. But, you know, assault rifles are a non-issue in America. The NRA apparently has every politician scared to death.

But as you say, that was a particularly bad answer from Mitt Romney.
