Republicans are quickly realizing that alienating every interest group (women, minorities, etc.) is not a winning strategy. On Thursday evening's edition of "The Daily Show," Jon Stewart turned his attention to the newest group lucky enough to win the favor of the party: gay people.

Don't get too attached to the attention, senior pandering correspondent Al Madrigal warned-- just two years ago, latinos were receiving the same kind of, well, pandering:

"The GOP was falling all over itself pretending to love latinos. They were all up in our culos. And you know how long that love fiesta lasted? Six f*cking months!... As soon as the GOP figured out that latinos don't exactly vote Republican lock step, they tossed us out like a four day old chimichanga!

And who were they replaced with?

"Fresh piping hot gays!" said Madrigal. "Well you know what? The joke's on them because latinos are the original gays!"
