Thanks to Jezebel for linking to Tuesday night's excellent "Daily Show" segment by Samantha Bee. In it, Bee morphs into a very believable Carrie Bradshaw as she wonders, in Sarah Jessica Parker-perfect tones, now that women can be "doctresses, body-buildtrixes and firemenwomen," "Is America ready for a woman president?"

The whole clip is hilarious, but the best part is probably when Bee goes "cruising the sample sales with [her] feminist friend Kim Gandy, the lady president of some lady thing." That would be the National Organization for Women.
