>> Jon: WELCOME TO "THE DAILY

SHOW".

MANY I NAME IS JON STEWART.

OUR GUEST TONIGHT, SETH ROGAN.

SETH ROGAN IS GOING TO BE HERE.

OH, HE'S A FUNNY MAN H.'S

CURRENTLY GOT A NEW COMEDY OUT

ABOUT A... CANCER.

OKAY.

(LAUGHTER)

ANYWAY, LET'S BEGIN THE NIGHT

WITH CAMPAIGN OBAMA.

HIS REELECTION BID HAS TAKEN

THEM TO THE WEST COAST WHERE

BETWEEN SPEECHES AND FUND-RAISER

IT IS FIRST FELLA VISITED

SILICON VALLEY AT A TOWN HALL

EVENT HOSTED BY THE COMPANY

LINKEDIN-- WHATEVER THAT IS.

(LAUGHTER)

>> WE CONNECT HUNDREDS OF

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ULTIMATELY

AROUND THE WORLD.

BY CONNECTING TALENT AND

OPPORTUNITY.

>> Jon: OH, IS THAT WHAT IT IS?

I THOUGHT IT WAS AN E-MAIL

IN-BOX FLOODING SERVICE WHOSE

SOLE PURPOSE IN LIFE WAS TO

REMIND ME A GUY I WENT TO HIGH

SCHOOL WITH WOULD LIKE ME TO

JOIN LINKED IN AND SPAM EVERYONE

I EVER MET.

YOU KNOW WHAT?

IF IT HELPS PEOPLE GET JOBS...

>> I HAVE A 222 YEAR VERY

SUCCESSFUL CAREER IN I.T.

MANAGEMENT.

>> I LOST MY JOB IN 2009.

>> I HAVE A QUESTION FOR MY

MOTHER.

SHE'S CURRENTLY UNEMPLOYED.

>> I'M FROM CHICAGO.

RECENTLY UNEMPLOYED.

>> I GUESS WHAT WE'RE SAYING,

MR. PRESIDENT, I DON'T THINK

THIS LINKEDIN THING WORKS.

WE'VE BEEN POSTING FOR YEARS AND

EVERYONE'S STILL UNEMPLOYED.

(LAUGHTER)

THIS IS LIKE GOING TO A

CRAIGSLIST TOWN HALL AND HAVING

PEOPLE GET UP "DO YOU KNOW ANY

ONLINE SITES WHERE YOU CAN GATE

HAND JOB AND A GENTLY-USED

FUTON?"

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

"IS THERE ANY WAY I CAN GET?"

MY ASSUMPTION IS THEY'RE

APPLAUDING THE HAND JOB AND NOT

THE FUTON.

(LAUGHTER)

IT WAS A LITTLE DIFFERENT FOR

THE PRESIDENT LAST NIGHT AS HE

HELD A $250 A PERSON FUND-RAISER

AT THE HOLLYWOOD HOUSE OF BLUES.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

THIS IS THE TROUBLE WITH THESE

HOLLYWOOD EVENTS.

(LAUGHTER)

, THERE'S ALWAYS A CHANCE MEL

GIBSON'S GOING TO SHOW UP!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

IT WASN'T ME, IT WAS THE BEAVER!

LISTEN, HOW BAD CAN THE ECONOMY

BE WHEN A NUT CAN SPEND $250

JUST TOO YELL (BLEEP) TO THE

PRESIDENT.

(LAUGHTER)

UNLESS THE PRESIDENT IS USING

HIS FALLING POLL NUMBERS TO FUND

RAISE.

YEAH, FOR $250, YOU CAN YELL

STUFF AT HIM.

FOR $500 YOU CAN GIVE HIM THE

CLASSIC PSYCHOHAND SHAKE.

PLEASURE TO MEET YOU.

(BLEEP).

MAYBE HE'LL TAKE MAKE WHICH YOU
