American political comedy juggernaut The Daily Show has celebrated the brevity of the Australian election campaign, marvelling at how we squeeze so much action into a month-long campaign.
The show, currently hosted by British comedian John Oliver while usual host Jon Stewart is on leave, today did a whole segment on “Down-Undercision2013″…
… of course the real test is does it have an under-informed, right wing woman thrust into a national political spotlight she’s not only unprepared for but at times seems to barely comprehend,” Oliver says, before describing (Stephanie) Banister as “a turbo-Palin.”
The Daily Show had good fun analysing the Australian election campaign.
