Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden, two pretty famous people, are in the process of attempting to appeal to, as Jon Stewart says, "traditional blue-collar Reagan Democrat voters" -- and they are laughably bad at it. While the two are engaged in a "poor-off," Stewart chides: "What's with the poverty tourette's? Why do these two seem to think we need a hobo for president? Own what you have, it's fine!"
