Play of the Day: The State of Our Union is Actually Pretty Funny

The vast majority of late-night comedy airtime Wednesday was spent on Barack Obama’s Tuesday State of the Union address. Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon both took an opportunity to mock Obama’s somewhat awkward fist bump with Illinois Sen. Mark Kirk. On Comedy Central, The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart was very distressed about Obama’s mentions of problematic bridge infrastructure, while Stephen Colbert has a suggestion as to how to avoid said bridges.

Fast forward to 4:15 to see Stewart explain what will happen if our government continues its current level of dysfunction.
