>> Jon: WELCOME TO THE "DAILY SHOW." MY NAME IS JON STEWART.

WE'VE GOT A GREAT SHOW FOR YOU TONIGHT.

THANK YOU.

IN MY-- IN MY CONTINUING EFFORT TO MAKE MYSELF LOOK AS MUCH LIKE A KEEBLER ELF AS POSSIBLE, OUR GUEST TONIGHT MAGIC JOHNSON WILL

BE JOINING US.

( APPLAUSE ) HAVE WE HAD ANYBODY-- I THINK FLAFT TWO WEEKS HAVE, WE HAD ANYBODY UNDER, LIKE, 6'6" ON THE SHOW?

EVERYBODY THAT'S BEEN ON THE SHOW GIVES ME A RIDE HOME IN THEIR POCKET.

( LAUGHTER )

>> I-- I HOPE YOU HAVE DOLBY AT HOME.

BECAUSE THAT'S-- ( LAUGHTER ) FOLKS, ELECTION WATCHERS ARE ALWAYS POISED THIS LATE IN THE CAMPAIGN SEASON FOR WHAT THEY

REFER TO AS AN OCTOBER SURPRISE.

IT APPEARS THAT TIME IS UPON US.

AS EVIDENCED BY THE RECENT PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE WHERE BARACK OBAMA UNVEILED HIS EXPLOSIVE OCTOBER SURPRISE THAT HE HAS

GIVEN UP.

( LAUGHTER ).

SURPRISE!

( APPLAUSE ) EVEN THE PRESIDENT ACKNOWLEDGED TO HIS LESS-THAN-STELLAR PERFORMANCE.

>> AFTER THE DEBATE I HAD A BUNCH OF FOLKS COME TO ME, DON'T BE SO POLITE.

DON'T BE SO NICE.

WHAT WAS BEING PRESENTED WASN'T LEADERSHIP.

THAT'S SALESMANSHIP.

>> Jon: RIGHT, BUT SALESMANSHIP IS THE THING YOU INVARIABLY NEED TO ACQUIRE LEADERSHIP.

( LAUGHTER ) BY THE WAY, I DON'T THINK ANYONE WAS SUGGESTED YOU NEED TO BE POLITE.

THAT YOU JUST SHOUT, YEAH, ( BLEEP ) LIAR!" PEOPLE ARE JUST SUGGESTING YOU STAND UP TO MR. ROMNEY "WITH ALL

DUE RESPECT, YOU'RE A ( BLEEP )
