"If you've got a business -- you didn't build that!" Those words, spoken by President Barack Obama, have become one of the pillars of the Republican party's campaign. In fact, "We Built That" is the theme of this year's Republican National Convention, even becoming a chant.
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart has continually mocked the right's pouncing on this out-of-context quote, even showing that many major news networks who put the quote "in context" actually edited it so that the context still wasn't evident. In this week's coverage of the RNC, Stewart has continued to mock the twisting of the president's grammatically faulty quote, even listing off things the Republican party has done wrong so that the crowds at the RNC can chant, "We built that!"
Stewart is taking that joke one step further on tonight's episode of The Daily Show. Part of tonight's episode will be dedicated to a mock propaganda film titled "Romney - A Human Being Who Built That." If that's just not enough to have you double-checking your DVR, how about this: the film is narrated by Leonard Nimoy.
If that's not the most exciting thing, I don't know what is.
A teaser for the 'film' has been released, featuring Nimoy lauding Romney while introducing clearly out-of-context quotes from the president (one of which is pieced together from different speeches to form one hilarious confession). It looks like the typical brand of Daily Show humor, with the added gravitas of Spock.
Check out the trailer here.
The Daily Show will air its penultimate episode of RNC coverage tonight at 11/10c on Comedy Central.
