Mario Batali and Jon Stewart Demonstrated How to Chew Food for Other People Last Night

On last night's Daily Show, John Stewart and Mario Batali schooled us on Super PACs in a way that will be forever seared in our minds. If my poli sci teacher used even an ounce of this type of imagery, who knows where I'd be now. (Working for a Super PAC, presumably.)

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
