Jon Stewart bids farewell to Herman Cain, Pokemon-style

Monday night on “The Daily Show,” Jon Stewart bid a reluctant goodbye to Herman Cain, the Republican presidential candidate who has provided his show with a nearly endless stream of material over the last two months, with Stewart suggesting that his show’s writers are more unhappy with Cain’s decision to pull out of the race than Cain’s supporters.

“I’m gonna miss him so much,” Stewart said.

Stewart also delved into one of the greatest mysteries still surrounding Cain’s imploded campaign: Why the now ex-contender seemed so preoccupied with a passage from a Donna Summer song from 12-year-old Pokemon movie.


All we can do is agree with Stewart’s sentiment: “Well said, magic Japanese cat-monster.”
