Those of you in the Central, Mountain and Pacific time zones can still catch the Daily Show re-run, which has an enormously funny "interview" wit Dean. In addition, The Daily Show has what's probably the best election coverage out there.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    what network is the daily show on?

    i've seen it a couple of times, but I have no idea what time or what station

    Let's never forget we are American patriots first, loyal Democrats second, and presidential candidate supporters third.

  •  They will also rerun it tomorrow early evening (none)
    I think it's 7 pm CST/6 PM EST.
  •  Just watched Dean on Daily Show (none)
    thanks for the info.

    Strange, it must be a young person's humor.  (I'm 46)

    I smiled, but...

  •  just watched it (none)
    I lauged out loud a couple of times.  Not bad.  The Teletubbies thing was good. Dean's daydream look was nice, but he should keep his day job though, whatever that is.

    I liked the bit about Sawyer too. They nailed her.  She was very tabloidesque in her questions, like she wasn't going to let up until Judy admitted Howard beats her daily with dead baby seals.

    •  mediocre (none)
      Too bad...I'm smack in the target demographic and I found the show, well, not up to their usual standards (both for Dean and for John Stewart).  The lead in with Diane Sawyer was by far the best part.  

      Richard Perle's on tomorrow night to 'tell us who we're going to bomb next'.  

      The Lieberman bit was pretty good, though.  Joementum doesn't seem to have caught fever with anyone but Lieberman.  I still like 'Vote Jomentos- He's the Freshmaker'

    You need Realplayer for this.

    I thought it had hilarious moments and I laughed out loud about the Gore endorsement.

  •  That said ... (none)
    The one opportunity Dean missed was to really poke fun at and pick apart the Iowa Concession speech.   I know he probably didn't write it up, but it would have been funny to see his reaction to the "Welcome to the Jungle" version of the Scream.
    •  The moment of Zen (none)
      was brilliant though, as they showed Dean reading the voice-over pieces from the interview, some of which they didn't use, and Stewart was just shaking with laughter in the foreground. The interview wasn't the greatest thing ever--Stewart's and Colbert's destruction of the State of the Union was far better for instance, especially when Colbert said that Bush "bullshat" his way through it. Gorgeously funny.

    •  at a town hall thing today (none)
      Someone asked him about the speech, and he did give a plug to deangoesnuts.com. Yay.
  •  Unpresidential? (none)
    Not Stewart's best performance (he isn't used to interviewing people without the audience to play to)

    I would have preferred Stephen Colbert.

    Not Dean's best comedic performance, but good.

    There were a few moments that made me wince though----the teletubby joke was kinda unpresidential.

    •  Did you see (none)
      this article in the Manchester Union leader about the reporters and the questions they would ask given the chance? Colbert wants to ask Dean something like, "The media has portrayed you as the angry candidate. Doesn't that piss you off?"

    •  The "voiceover" interviews never work (none)
      Stewart did almost the same thing in his interview with John McCain.  It worked about as well.

      If anything the teletubbies gag at the end set it above McCain's, but that's not saying much.  In the future, I wish they'd just have normal interviews.  Stewart's funny enough as an interviwer alone-- he doesn't need the retarded gimmicks.
