Jon Stewart opened last night's Daily Show by following up on the not-so-jolly Santa scandal currently plaguing Fox News. Last week, the station's Megyn Kelly kicked off a debate over a Slate article that said Saint Nick should no longer be a Caucasian man by declaring "Santa just is white." Kelly's strangely conclusive claim about a fictional character generation a lot of backlash (though Stephen Colbert did lend his support), but the Fox News pundit now says she was misunderstood. Apparently her comment was an "offhand jest" that has been "lost on the humourless."
Not wanting to be taken for a Grinch, on last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart rewatched the clip and then laughed and laughed and laughed.
