Says Jon Stewart: Central Kia, You're a "Historic First." Not in a Good Way.

Always a good day when you can lead off with a Daily Show video mocking a local business -- in this instance, Central Kia's spot using a Barack Obama lookalike to move 2008 Sportages at low, low prices. Notes Stewart: "Un. Believable." Because of the low, low prices. And because "Barack Obama is not even president yet, and we're already using his likeness to sell cars -- that is an an honor we have bestowed only on Presidents Washington and Lincoln." Then, it gets better. --Robert Wilonsky
