That had to hurt.

A word of advice for White House staffers: when John Stewart has to take a second or two to tell viewers that he's not making things up, you might have a serious problem:

Stewart: "So far, at least five four-star generals have declined the position, some citing that this administration -- and this is true -- doesn't appear to know what it's doing. To address this...." [audience laughter and applause] "...The generals said that. That's the generals saying that, and you know I never go against my commanders in the field."

When he has to do it twice in a single monologue, things are probably going downhill really fast:

Stewart: "To address this... problem... the White House is - and this is also true - changing the job's title from "czar" to "execution manager."

And when he says this, it's time to update resumes and jump ship:

Stewart: "I mean, at this point this administration is making me obsolete."

Ouch.

The rest of the segment is pretty good, too.

    MessO'Potamia... Priceless... Crushingly obvious once someone does it. But priceless none the less.
