As if wasn't enough that Rick Perry's fellow GOP candidates are turning on him, Jon Stewart's been giving him a hell of a time. Most of Stewart's jokes have been about his poor debate performances, as well as any other time the Republican hopeful has opened his mouth. But once news broke about Perry's questionably named hunting camp (it's called "Niggerhead Ranch"), the jokes practically wrote themselves.
Stewart talks about his shock that this bit of information is just coming to light now, after Perry's eleven years as Governor (as well as Herman Cain's eagerness to drop the N-bomb as a courtesy to squeamish news pundits). Wyatt Cenac then weighs in on the situation from the shores of Nigger Lake, NY — one of the 100+ locations in America that contain the N-word. Cenac then concludes with a few facts of his own — black people don't make enough maps, Rand McNally was a racist, and even "That fucking lake over there" sounds better than anything with the N-word in it.
