'The Daily Show' reports on 'DADT' repeal

Posted on

Last night, The Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones gave a live — well, lively, really — report from “Afghanistan” covering the news of the historic repeal of the military’s controversial policy Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. Drinking a tangerini and dressed in garb that host Jon Stewart could only refer to as “quite a getup,” Jones joked, “The end of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell has turned our once proud armed forces into a camouflage-thong pansexual bacchanal.”

Actually, according to the report, not much, if anything, has changed — shower rape is still very much illegal, FYI — and Jones was the only one not wearing regulation ankle-length short shorts. As the correspondent explained, the announcement was being heralded in the armed forces as “No Duh, Tuesday.” As for the commanding officer who broke the news? It was Captain Obvious, of course.
