Who has bigger “balls,” Jon Stewart asked Wednesday: Mitt Romney or Barack Obama?
Let’s review: Threatened by Newt Gingrich’s surge in the polls, Romney is going after the former House Speaker. In an interview Wednesday, Romney called Gingrich “zany,” and he has questioned Newt’s conservative record. But Stewart was still skeptical.
“Seriously, you’re the guy who’s so far to the left in his own party that this afternoon, Fox News — this is true — accidentally used a photo of Barack Obama where a picture of you should go.”
Which brings us to the president. Romney might be talking tough, but President Obama said the U.S. asked Iran to return our lost drone.
“You were spying on them, via a drone,” Stewart said. “You’re acting like we lent them season one of The Wire. It takes giant balls to ask for your spy drone back.”
So Stewart presented Obama with the biggest balls of the week award, brought to you by Lowe’s hardware company.
